We are all busy. Busy taking care of kids. Busy advancing our careers. Busy finishing up school. Things to stress about are everywhere as well. With all that is going on in the world it is easy to put yourself on the back burner. We put our other responsibilities before ourselves.

However, to be the best version of ourselves, we need to take care of our needs. Resting, meditating, recharging and following our passions will allow us to not only be the best version of ourselves but also to be the best version to be taking care of our responsibilities and day to day tasks.


The great angst of modern life is this: No matter how hard we try, no matter how successful we are, no matter how good a parent, worker, or spouse we are—it’s never enough. There is always someone richer, thinner, smarter, or more powerful than we are, someone who makes us feel like a failure in comparison.“-Kristin Neff, Ph.D
