Jada Pinkett & Willow Smith

It’s not just Tuesday, it’s #TakeCareTuesday! One thing I’ve learned (the hard way) is that if use all of your time, money and energy taking care of everyone else– you won’t have anything left for yourself. So, today is the perfect day to start showing yourself some love.

In one of my favorite Mindset Monday chats a few months ago, I talked about the importance of practicing patience with yourself, believing bigger and better for yourself and being willing to do whatever it takes to live the life you’re meant to live. [Replay the audio when you have a moment.]

So when I saw this video of Jada Pinkett talking about the importance of taking care of yourself FIRST it really hit home. How many times have you made everyone else a priority and neglected your own needs? How many times have you made excuses about why you can’t afford ot can’t find the time to do what you need to do?

Because I know how important it is to take care of yourself and also how easy it is to “not have the time” to do it, I have a few suggestions that may help:

#1 Take care of your mind. I changed my mindset and it changed my life. If you don’t take control of your mind it will end up controlling you. One way to improve your mindset is to become a lifelong learner, taking in as much new knowledge as possible. Click here.

#2 Take care of your body. After losing over 25 pounds and completely transforming myself physically I had a whole new outlook on life. I became more confident, more cheerful and positive and ready to LOVE life. I want the same for you! Whether that means changing your diet or increasing your exercise this will help.

#3 Take care of your bank account. Going from employee to entrepreneur taught me one major lesson: making money isn’t that hard. You never have a money problem,  you have a creativity problem. If you want to buy your freedom and stop stressing over money, you have to create multiple streams of income. Click here.

You owe it to yourself to put in the WERK to live the life you truly want. There’s something so magical that happens when you start to manifest the things you’ve been wishing and waiting and hoping and praying for…

Stop making excuses and start making it happen!

Cheers to Take Care Tuesday!
