Do something for Future You

Updated: Dec 18, 2018

It's easy as a mom to put everyone above yourself.  So, I have a new person to add to that list -- Future You. Sometimes framing nourishing activities in terms of an abstract future self is easier than being kind to ourselves in the moment. 

So, what can I do for Future Kari that will make her life a little bit easier? 

  • Go to bed early, so I am rested tomorrow. 

  • Wash my dishes as I use them, so I'm not stuck with a bunch at the end of the day when I'm exhausted. 

  • Make my bed. Future me loves climbing into one that's made. 

  • Make fun plans with friends to go to a favorite hot spot. 

  • Grab the apple vs. the cookie, so I don't feel gross in the morning. 

So, today -- do one thing for Future YOU. She's worth it.
