Fill Up Your Own Cup

This week I’m sharing with you ways to fill up your own cup. Many people think self care is selfish. I on the other hand know it’s necessary. Without taking the time to fill up your own cup, you will run out of energy to give to others.

A new Sunday Funday

First of all, I’m sharing with you the eye opening experience I had when I did just that – filled up my own cup. Last Sunday, I met a girlfriend early for soul cycle which is an indoor stationery bike class. Then we attended a farmers market. What I loved most about this – I started the day with an ass kicking physical challenge and then I got to sample tastings from local small shops. 

In addition, not only do I love supporting local, I love fresh food and homemade sauces. One of my favorite stands is the fresh produce where you can fill up a bag for just $10. It’s a bargain. I went home and played with my puppy and cooked fresh food. I was on such a high and more productive than I had been in weeks.

It only takes 20 minutes

By filling up your own cup, you’re able to want to give your time and attention to others. I realize life can be hectic at times but the good news is, filling up your own cup doesn’t have to be burdensome. Literally, just 20 minutes a day can make you feel like a whole new person.

Here are just a few ideas if you want to get started:
