When you give it all away
I can’t quite figure out when culturally we decided that giving all of ourselves away was the thing we had to do.
Whether you’re career-driven, a parent, or otherwise, the common thing is to give it all away – your time, your energy, and your attention – and leave nothing for yourself.
We believe it makes us good parents and spouses.
We believe it makes us the most dedicated workers.
But when all we do is help others and leave nothing for ourselves aside from an empty brain and a body completely drained of energy at the end of the day, no one really wins.
This isn’t to say you should shirk your obligations…that’s not realistic.
But reprioritising your energy and attention is entirely doable.
Because the truth is that when you make the time for yourself to exercise, have alone time, and to eat well, everyone benefits.
You’re a BETTER parent and spouse.
You perform in your job BETTER.
And when you’re happier, so is everyone else in your life.
Happiness is magnetic.
So is drained energy and stress.
The excuse is made far too often that we don’t have the time to do the things that fill us up.
But we all have 24 hours in a day.
And you do get to choose (even if it feels like maybe you don’t).
So, what would fill your cup?
What would energise you and inspire you, resulting in being better for everyone else across all areas of life?
One of the things I find with my clients is that being part of the community I’ve built changes everything for them.
They’re finally able to commit to their fitness routine and eating healthier long-term.
Their energy rises. They smile more. They beam with confidence.
If this is something you know you need, come to see us at Empowered Fitness this month so we can schedule a time to speak.
Everything is possible ☺
What do you want for yourself?
