pamper yo self.

Pamper yourself.  That’s the only guaranteed way to make sure it gets done. 

A couple weeks ago I celebrated my 39th (?!?!) birthday, and I was on the verge of a panic attack.  It had nothing to do with the bday, just work and life piling up.  The Juniper Lemons sale wrapped, the dog got sick, the day job was beyond busy, the toddler was fussy, the hubs was MIA, and I was 28 weeks pregs and already hella huge.

I was managing to balance work and life, but life was just as much work!  That’s when I learned that it’s not a work/life balance that should be the goal, but a work/LEISURE balance.  I blocked out that Saturday as a self care day and committed Pavi to watch the little.

Like I always do when I’m intent on getting something done, I made a list.  That Saturday I tackled each and evert one of those pampering action items and it was GLORIOUS!

went shopping (which was kinda a fail)…

… and dove face first into a whole pizza while watching Trainwreck.  I’ll spare you those pics.

By the time my birthday rolled around that Monday, I felt much more sane and ready to kick off the start of a great new year!

It is so important to take time for you.  Balance work (and life!) with leisure, and pamper yourself on the regular.

What do you do to take care of you?
