It Happened This Week: Taking Time for Ourselves


I’m going to practice what I preach today and put myself first.  I’ve got too many meetings going on — and my daughter is home for the first time in a year.   So I’m not going to spend time putting together our usual Friday review of notable reads on the web.

Instead, I’ll just encourage everyone else who is caught up in the busyness of this time of year to remember to make time for yourself where it really counts, or even just where you can.  When we put ourselves first, everyone is better for it.

If you’re having a bit of trouble doing that, check out our FitBriefing on Mindfulness during the Holidays.  It focuses on mindful eating as well as the need to put ourselves first during this time of year.

Happy last weekend before Christmas!

Do you have all your shopping done?  I don’t!  Eek!!
