Put yourself first and Stop the Guilt
Michelle Obama once famously stated that SHE was the most important person in her household.
More important than her two daughters.
More important than her husband – the President of the United States of America.
She explained that she looks at herself as the most important person because if she doesn’t care for herself the whole family falls apart.
She schedules her fitness, her self-care, meditation and doesn’t let anything come in the way of that.
It makes her a better mother, wife and First Lady.
Ever since I heard her interview I have really tried to do this myself but it is HARD! I get the guilts as I am sure you are all familiar with.
The past couple of years I have set a mantra for myself instead of New Years resolutions.
Last year it was ‘Bigger and Better’. I achieved that with the opening of our Spa in Mudgeeraba, more clients, more staff, more services. But I felt so drained and to be quite honest it nearly sent me into a nervous breakdown.
I had to really rethink my goals for 2017. So this year my mantra is ‘Self-Care’.
I have started regular PT sessions, getting into Yoga and practice mindfulness wherever I can. My husband says he sees a difference in my general mood and I can feel it too.
I tried to think of a way to encourage other women to start putting themselves first. I decided to create our Direct Debit Plans as a way for you to put yourself first in at least one area which is your skin and self care.
These Plans are a way of nurturing yourself without worrying about finding the spare cash.
I work long hours and whether it is time, money or thinking there’s something more important I would rarely get a facial or that kind of thing just for me.The direct debit option at Earth & Skin means I can have a package tailored just for my needs. I truly don’t miss the money that comes out each week and I know that there’s time where I can indulge in an hour or two just for myself. I look forward to the two Fridays a month I have a treatment at the spa and I walk out feeling calm and balanced.
Our plans help to ensure you get one luxurious, self-loving treatment every month for the whole year.
Got someones birthday coming up – what a beautiful gift that will last all year.
Would you like to send a hint to a significant other that this would be an amazing gift?
Our Direct Debit Packages are the perfect way to make sure your self care and your skincare doesn’t get put last!
