Life can get a bit chaotic and feel out of control at times. Obstacles will always stand in our way and make everything a bit more difficult.
When things start spiraling out of control, self-care typically gets neglected, which can make your situation seem even worse than it is.

Here are 5 simple lifestyle hacks that will help calm your life and get you back on track with self-care.
Do you carve out 15-30 minutes each morning for yourself?
Or do you wake up and frantically get ready for the day? The alarm goes off, you rush around, maybe eat breakfast, if there's time, check your messages and then start work...

When you don't have control of your day from the minute you wake up this is what happens:

"Your life, including how you spend your time is a by-product of the choices you've made" - Marie Forleo
The difficult situations you are in now aren't your fault, but could those situations have been avoided?
Yes, they 100% could have been but we have to own the choices we've made.
On a daily basis, I hear excuses about how "I don't have time for (fill in the blank)"...
Making excuses is not going to make your time magically free up!
But guess what? When you take responsibility for how you spend your time, you can reclaim the power to change it.
If it's important enough, you'll make the time. If it's not, you'll make an excuse...

Are those choices moving you closer to living the life you want, or are they pushing you further away from it?

Ok...now I know what you are probably thinking, "easier said than done."
I totally get it.
It took me years to let go of guilt because I'm such a people pleaser.
However, I realized that most of the choices I was making were only causing me unnecessary stress. I also struggled with finding the time to focus on my own needs.
My health went downhill, I wasn't sleeping and I was burnt out.
Can you relate?
Are you sick...
