Last week, I posted this video to my Facebook page, and it seemed to resonate with many of you.
Earlier this year, we asked women about their lifestyle – nearly half said they were feeling moderately or extremely stressed & shockingly 40% feel like they’re about to burn out. We weren’t surprised, we feel it too. From our everyday never-ending ‘to do’ lists to the pressure the media puts on us to be the ‘perfect woman’. We rush around trying to do more, be more, give more. But we don’t need to be like this 24/7, it’s not healthy. We need to #LetGo of all this pressure every now & again. So we’ve created a film with advice from women who truly know the importance of stepping back every now and then and appreciating life’s precious moments.
One of my favorite lines came from an older woman who said, “If I had my time to do over again, I wouldn’t create a to-do list, I would create a to-don’t-do list.”
So I’m taking her advice, and creating my own to DON’T do list.
*Don’t compare myself to others.
*Don’t measure my worth with “likes” and “hearts” and “followers.”
*Don’t buy anything that doesn’t add value to my life.
*Don’t create a “hurry up” life for my kids.
*Don’t exercise for the sake of vanity.
*Don’t rush bedtime stories.
*Don’t try to keep up with what everyone else is doing.
*Don’t discount the little things that make up a great life.
What would you put on your “to DON’T do” list?
