Girlfriends and Cocktails-Making Time for Yourself

Girlfriends and Cocktails, what could be better and more fun! This video is part 2 of my St. Augustine Road Trip with my girlfriend from San Diego, CA. Veronica and I have been friends for over 10 years, as our children went to high school together. This video has some fun cocktail tips and photos of inside the St. Augustine Distillery. I am going to leave you with the link to Part 1 of my video and the St. Augustine Distillery if you want to know more or are planning a trip to the area (highly recommend the tour).

I think it is so important to take some time for yourself! As women, many times we are so focused on external matters that we forget or ignore our own needs. It doesn’t matter if it is home life, children, work, extended family or friends, so many times we focus on others and completely miss the calls for help and attention that our body and mind are screaming at us.

What is the answer to attending to others as well as looking after yourself? First take time to think, breath and listen to your inner-self. You can do that through prayer, meditation, exercise and long hot bath or shower… There is no right or wrong way to collect yourself unwind. None of these ways are restricted by time, resources or location; we all need to bathe, we all have a floor, chair or log to sit and contemplate, we can all get out and walk around the block alone and prayer can be done on the run, in a car or while doing a chore. There should be no excuses for not weekly, daily or at least monthly checking in with yourself and make sure you are good.

The next step is to act and answer your physical and mental needs; sometimes we just need to get away and not worry about anything. Take a trip with your girlfriend(s), go to a day spa, lunch and shopping, buy yourself a little goody (even if you have to plan and safe, you are worth it!) Going with someone can be very therapeutic. Make it a monthly, weekly or annual thing, depending on how detailed, long and expensive your plans are. Now you have something to look forward to. When life gets hectic, stressful and repetitive you know that you have an escape coming. If you can’t wait to find something small to recharge yourself or try step one again.

I hope you found this post helpful. I want you to go away with the notion that you are wonderful and all your hard work, even if it seems unappreciated does not go unnoticed. If you are feeling forgotten, take back yourself and unplug if only for a few hours, to remind yourself that you are fabulous and so worth it!
