Is summer already over?
Oh dear, it is almost September! This means summer is almost over! The dreaded season of going back to school and work is around the corner! How do you feel about it?
For the last few years my family and I have booked our last holiday in the beginning of September. We are doing this for several reasons. The South’s extreme heat for a Dane for one thing but also to subconsciously delay the dreaded season of going back to school! Everything gets busier. The streets fill up again and the supermarkets get busy. People are more stressed and seem to need to hurry everywhere! They forget to smile and quickly ignore their newfound energy from their relaxing holiday.
Every year I enjoy August in Luxembourg because the country is empty! There is no traffic and shopping goes quicker due to no lines at the cashier. I know Luxembourg is not a huge country, so it is nothing compared to London or Paris! But life does run smoother during August.
When we come back from holiday, it is just in time for the public school to start. This is a time for turmoil and confusion. “La rentrée” as it is called here can be quite stressful. New routines need to be set in place and everyone needs to be on board with them. School lunches need to be packed. After-school activities need to be scheduled. Meal planning needs to get going again. Someone needs to do the shopping. My exercise class starts up again – oh dear, do I have time to go or should I try something new? Before we know of it it’s Christmas and we haven’t done any of the things we said we would do, right? Especially when it comes to our health. I never managed to sign up for that new health class I wanted to try and I also missed the cooking class I wanted to go to.
Around Christmas and New Years we remember what we had promised ourselves the previous year! Was this the year you were supposed to take better care of yourself? Was this the year you would finally lose the extra weight or did you settle for the just-don’t-gain-any-weight solution because you figure you will never lose the weight anyway?
If this sounds like you why not try to do things a little different this year? The one thing we as women and mothers often forget is to take care of ourselves! We are so busy making things work for everyone else that we put ourselves at the bottom of the to do list! We forget to be nice to ourselves and we let ourselves go.
This year you can do things differently! How about learning some easy strategies you can put in place for yourself to finally break this viscous cycle and actually live your life with more energy and vitality?
I would like you to invite you to join a 5-day course where I teach you clear-cut strategies on how you can start taking better care of yourself! Each day for 5 days I will send you a new strategy straight to your inbox.
I have been there myself and I can tell you that the consequence of not taking better care of myself for me resulted in a burn out situation, where I didn’t recognise myself anymore, didn’t recognise my partner anymore and really wondered why I had kids in the first place. I gained unnecessary weight and I felt I had aged 10 years! I don’t want this to happen to you, so please don’t let this be your story. Even if this has already happened to you, you can still rewrite your story! Take action now and sign up for the 5-day course. It is completely free and may potentially turn your life around! Are you ready to gain more energy, reduce stress and improve your quality of life?
