Why prioritising yourself is important
Do you put yourself first in life?
Or do you feel selfish even contemplating that question?
In reality, it’s actually very important to respect yourself enough to take care of your own needs first.
Because only then can you be happy and thrive in your own life.
It also allows you to be fully present for others and avoid burnout – which doesn’t just have a negative impact on you, but also those around you.
Yes, even your loved ones – who you thought you were helping by making them your number 1 priority in the first place!
In today’s episode, I’m chatting with Sarah Erwin from High Esteem Coaching, who enforces the importance of charging our own batteries, putting on our own breathing mask first, and all those other metaphors to ensure we’re being kind to ourselves and maintaining a strong sense of self.
Let’s jump into the episode!
