You work hard and deserve downtime to rest and relax. Start displaying self-confidence and acting like you’re worthy of taking time for yourself. Complaining about how much you do and that there’s never enough time to do what you want isn’t going to make you any happier.
It’s up to you to take control of your life and create a better future for yourself. Believe in yourself and stop worrying about what other people think about you. Nothing will change unless you take charge and start living the life that puts a smile on your face each day. See ways to start putting yourself first.
Take Vacation Time
There’s no better way to pamper yourself than taking a vacation to rest and unwind. Pick somewhere really amazing like the White Buffalo Club in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and get away from it all for a while. This hotel and lodge offer a location unparalleled by any other downtown Jackson Hole hotel. Offering amazing views, high-end amenities, and guest-centric services, the suites boast luxury living in the center of downtown Jackson Hole. You’ll be impressed by all it has to offer.
Learn to say no
Learn to say no more often. Make sure it’s a word that’s in your vocabulary and readily available. Avoid committing everytime you’re asked to help out. If you don’t feel like it or you’d rather be spending your time elsewhere, then say no. You don’t have to give a reason or excuse as to why you’re denying the invitation. This will free up more time in your day and make you feel less stressed. Of course, say yes to opportunities that are important to you. The point is not to spread yourself too thin.
Exercise & Eat Healthy
Take care of yourself on a regular basis. Self-care is extremely important in your journey to success. It’s not selfish to put yourself first. Make exercise and a healthy diet a part of your daily routine. You’ll love the way you feel after implementing these adjustments in your life. Notice how great it is to feel good about yourself and keep making positive changes to improve your lifestyle as time goes on. The more you focus on improving you, the better you’ll do in all aspects of your life.
Make Time for You
Participate in activities and hang out with people who make you feel alive. Do what makes you feel good and make more time for yourself. You can’t do this unless you have the time. Create a schedule that’s flexible and allows you the opportunity to fuel your soul. Read a good book or go for a long walk and reflect on your day. Give your mind time to rest and decompress. Create happiness from within by making smart choices.
It’s not healthy to push yourself aside and only please others. Start taking control of your life and choosing your activities and company wisely. Enjoy the benefits that come with nurturing yourself. These are ways to start putting yourself first.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
