Finding Time for Self-Care Problem

One of the most common objections I face with new clients and patients is “I just don’t have the time to xxxx”. Fill in the xxx with any activity that is exclusively focused on you or your well-being.

You feel like you don’t have the time to get IT all done let alone self-care… seems so far-fetched. How to find time for self-care, movement, and relationship and improve yourself.

Here’s the thing… if you, just like me years ago, you think you don’t have the time to care for yourself and health, think again because it’s not a question of having the time; it’s a question of making it.

This one single realization could be the key to finding the time to care for yourself and maybe, just maybe have the time for self-improvement.

In this episode I discuss 

  • The 4 important concepts to help you reframe your relationship to time so that you can self-care
  • Why shouldn’t you be really proud of having the “busy badge” – Is this you?
  • The real reason why you’re not making time for self-care
  • Where you should really put your self-worth and value to know where you should spend your time
  • How perfectionism affects your decisions and life overall
  • How you should really view time to achieve your goals and change your life

If you are one of those women, I highly recommend you listen to this episode because here, I will teach you why being perfect shouldn’t be your goal and what you should aim for instead. And most importantly, the 3-step process to overcome the need to be perfect!   Click here.
