Chances are, if you’re a mother or have a very demanding job or a busy social life—or all of the above—you tend to feel stressed and spread thin, especially during the holiday season. When so many people count on you in your life, it’s really hard to put yourself first. But the truth is, if you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be successful in taking care of the other things and people in your life.
If you want to put yourself first, but you’re not sure where to begin, a boudoir shoot with The Pouting Room is the answer. After leaving your boudoir session, you will feel rejuvenated, beautiful and you will regain a sense of self-love.
Here are a few tips for making yourself a priority:
Start with Acceptance
If you accept yourself totally and completely, you’ll be able to embrace who you are and what makes you happy. Tuning into those emotions can help navigate you when it comes to making decisions that are either going to feed your soul or add to your stress. Huffington Post says accepting what sets you apart and makes you remarkable will teach you how to serve your true self in serving others.
Listen to your mind and your body; if you start to feel unwell or stressed out, don’t ignore or suppress those things. Unpack emotions of stress and anxiety, and see what might be causing you to feel this way—you may not be able to cause the emotions to dissipate entirely, but often, naming them can help you feel like you’re equipped to handle them, which you definitely are. If your body is telling you to slow down and catch up on your sleep, do it. If you ignore signs of exhaustion, you could end up running yourself into the ground and even getting sick.
There’s No Shame in Saying, “No.”
A major step towards making yourself a priority is learning to say “no” when someone asks you for a favor, or to put in extra time at work. You have to learn to balance the things that are important to you, without sacrificing relationships along the way. Part of doing that means only taking on what you can handle.
One thing that you should definitely say “yes” to that could be a major confidence boost is a boudoir photoshoot with The Pouting Room.
