If you’re anything like my Vitality ladies, you may have a hard time saying “no” when people ask you to do something for them. Many of the women I work with love helping others, so much so that their dreams and desires often take a backseat. Helping others is great, but can lead to resentment over the long-term if you aren’t creating time for your own desires. Here are four ways to make saying “no”
Many of the women who are attracted to Vitality spend a lot of their time and energy helping others. Much of their happiness comes from being able to give people what they need. Unfortunately, I often hear from my clients that they’re always there to help everyone…and no one is ever there for them. This can lead to feeling drained and unappreciated, which never feels good. I have really struggled with feeling like I was taken for granted by the people I helped,
One of the things that I have realized is how important boundaries are when it comes to creating a life that makes you happy. The women I work with (myself included) struggle a lot with this. So I wanted to write you ladies a little reminder…I know I could use it from time to time.
It’s OK to say no…even if it means someone else’s feelings are hurt.
It’s OK to let go of people who hurt you (intentionally or unintentionally)…even if they don’t want you to.
Do you feel stressed out all the time? If you answered “yes” to that question, know that you are not alone. Many of the empathic women I work with struggle with stress, even if they aren’t fully aware of it because it just seems like an everyday part of life. Why? Because empaths are highly attuned to the energy of those around them (often beginning at a very young age). This can cause stress in ways that we become accustom to over time.
About a year and a half ago, I moved across the country to San Diego. I only knew one person and booked the ticket 10 days before I left. I had fantasized about moving for about a year and a half before I actually did it. While I don’t regret it for a moment, it naturally created a lot of stress in my life.
After staying with my friend for a week, I found another place to stay for a few weeks until I found a more permanent place.
Welcome to day 2 of your Vitality Challenge! Today, we’re going to be covering the importance of healthy boundaries when it comes to connecting with your intuition.
Healthy boundaries are deeply personal and separate your needs from other people’s. As empaths who so easily anticipate the needs of others, many of the women I work with have a tendency to put everyone’s needs before their own. They intuitively know what other people need,
Earlier this year, my body completely crashed. Despite having a “healthy lifestyle” where I did yoga every single day and ate pretty healthfully, I woke up and could barely get out of bed. My muscles had started catabolizing, I was consistently gaining weight (despite attempts to eat healthier to remedy this), my legs began having circulation problems, and my energy was completely depleted. In a matter of weeks, I went from being able to manage my condition to completely crashing.
Exciting news in Vitality land! For those of you that keep up with me on Facebook, on Thursday I announced that I had my Huffington Post debut! My first article is called “3 Boundaries Every Go-To Woman Needs In Their Life”. I would love for you to share and like it on Facebook and Twitter from the article! It makes it more likely it’ll be featured on social media and on the site.
