Down Time is not a luxury.  It is essential to our well being.  How will you nurture yourself while caring for others this summer?       
Summer Greetings to YOU, and a Warm Welcome to our new Subscribers! 
Our family just spent a long 3 day weekend back in West Va at our cabin.  I was able to reconnect with the joy of having nowhere to be!  Talk about completely unplugged...No cell phone, blue tooth, or computer--(I didn't even wear a watch!)  It was a welcome change to be awakened by whippoorwills instead of the alarm clock, and sip coffee outside by the creek running through our property.
Remember as a kid how the last day of school was the exciting start of a carefree summer?  While summer break is built into a typical school schedule, it's not that easy or clear cut for working adults and heart centered entrepreneurs.  Although taking "time out" for rest and renewal is still essential, we often put ourselves last on the list, thinking "when things are taken care of for everyone else, then I will take time for me."  Unfortunately, time seems to always run out doesn't it?  We can end up feeling resentful and a little envious, thinking "when will my summer start so I have a break from my overwhelming responsibilities"? 
Down time deserves to be intentionally built into your schedule, and then needs to be held as high priority just like any other important appointment.  Truth is, taking good care of everyone else includes you!  If you struggle with making time for you, we invite you to join us June 26th at for our day retreat "RISE" where you'll receive insight on how to nurture yourself while caring for others.
Synergy Life and Wellness Coaching programs are designed to give you tools to enjoy calm, focused energy no matter what's going on around you.  Whether it's through private coaching, attending a retreat or workshop, or making great friends while networking at the Synergy Success Circle, our goal is to inspire you resiliently forward in your personal and professional life.
What's one small thing you can do to take great care of you starting today? 
Here's to exceptional self care, because you are irreplaceable!
