A Week of Self Care Accountability

Good Morning!

You guys, I have reached the point of burnout. I ended last week feeling like I was running on fumes and it continued into this week. The days are long and even though I’ve removed everything non-essential from my life, my plate is very full. Instead of fighting it, I have accepted that I’m in a crazy stage of life right now and am trying my best to stay calm amongst the chaos.

I’m switching things up a bit and moving away from sharing my weekly routine. I’ve got it down, so instead I want to focus on one goal per week and use these posts to hold me accountable. This week I focused on self-care and set a goal to be accountable to myself every day. I kept track of the things I did for myself throughout the week and thought I would share this list today.
