I’m an entrepreneur and a divorced mother of two, so I understand that life is full of moving parts that command your attention in different ways. Growing up, my family always took care of each other but I didn’t understand until I was well into adulthood how important it is to take care of self. When I was going through the highs and lows of a personal life changing event and searching for fulfillment professionally, I learned how necessary it was to nurture myself, mind, body and spirit.
As a Transformation Success Coach, I’ve had countless conversations with clients who never practice self care or feel guilty when they do, ultimately putting others’ needs first before their own. Over the years, I’ve witnessed colleagues who work endless hours, attend back to back meetings and rarely stop for a break. It’s such a part of the norm in the corporate culture that working to exhaustion is like a Badge of Honor. What’s ignored is that stress and lack of self-care can destroy us over time. This is why I created The SitaZEN Room, so people can be advocates for their personal well-being, shift behaviors and have healthier lifestyles.
My mantra: Self-care is not selfish. It’s necessary.
I want you to adopt this for yourself!
