It's time to break free from the “selfless shackles” and forge the life you've always wanted to live.
As women, society often tells us that caring for ourselves is selfish—everyone else’s needs always take precedence over our own. We skip meals or grab unhealthy food on the run, never find time to exercise, stay up late night after night just to “get it all done,” only to wake up one day finding ourselves exhausted, depressed, overweight and in poor health, all in the name of being selfless.
While there needs to be balance between how much time we put into caring for ourselves versus caring for others, we MUST remind ourselves that we’re important too. You can’t be your best self for others or put your best foot forward day after day unless you rest and recharge. You need to “fill your cup” too.
Becoming your best self begins with a healthy mind.
If self-care is something you struggle with, it’s time to reprogram your mindset! Why? Because your thoughts become your truth.
Find a quiet space, take a minute and repeat these phrases:
- I forgive myself for dismissing my own needs and desires.
- I forgive myself for putting everyone else’s needs before mine.
- I AM important.
- I give myself permission to care for my mind, body and soul each day.
- I open myself up to embrace a beautiFULL journey toward better health.
Any time you question your self-worth or feel guilty about carving out time for yourself, come back to these words. You’ll slowly let go of your limiting mindset and begin living the FULL life you deserve.
Break free from the unhealthy habits holding you back and take huge strides forward in the areas that matter most.
Breaking your “selfless cycle” is almost impossible to do alone. In fact, research shows that you’re much more likely to focus and follow through with a healthy self-care routine when you have the love and support of others to help you succeed.
That’s why we created the FULLforLife Community. It’s the motivational voice you need in order to achieve the level of self-care you deserve.
We want to personally invite you to join us in this journey! We have everything you need to make your health a priority, heal your relationship with your mind and body, and achieve your goals.
P.S. On days when prioritizing self-care makes you feel selfish, remember this:
Your choices have a ripple effect and can make a difference in the lives of your friends, family and children.
You may not know it, but that’s how FULLforLife started over a decade ago. Pam’s mom and Kalie’s grandmother, Patricia, believed that eating well, moving her body and prioritizing her mental health directly impacted how she felt AND how she showed up for others. She liked to call this vibrant, all-inspiring lifestyle “living FULL.” Now, years later, Kalie is passing the legacy of “living FULL” on to her two girls—four generations later!
So, give yourself permission to create a daily self-care routine and release any guilt you may be holding onto.
We need to treat our bodies like temples, honoring and caring for the bodies God gifted us. When we feel healthy and energized, we’re able to lead by example and inspire the people we love, just like Pat did for those around her!
