It it some pretty epic timing that Self-Care Awareness Month is the month before my season begins and self-care can end up on the bottom of my priority list more often than not.
I quickly forget about the 4am wakeup calls, early morning flights and long road trips right after the season ends. And while I am always so excited to start a new season, I am constantly reminding myself to be better about making sure I am getting the care that I need so that I can be at my best – not only on the court but with all the other parts of my life.
Self-care can look so different, given the person or the circumstance. It changes all the time and that’s why I think it is so important to be able to choose you, in every moment.
So I am jumping into this month following along with the first Annual Self-Care Awareness Month Challenge. Super excited that our non-profit organization, Evolve to Live, was able to sponsor the recognition of this month by The National Calendar. Next goal – getting it recognized as a preventative health organization by the National Health Observations Calendar, coordinated by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion and the US Department of Health and Human Services. (fingers crossed!)
So here we go September!…#selfcare<3
