I have recently joined a weight loss program and so healthy eating and exercise is on top of my mind. Additionally, today morning a close friend added me to a whatsapp group called “workouts”. So obviously the word I chose was “workout” and this image came up on 11th spot. I loved it! It was definitely inspiring me to write around it.
When I see this pic, it reminds me of the quote “ Talking care of yourself doesn’t mean me first, it means me too “.
Women often neglect themselves as they are always put the needs of others before them. They end up paying heavy price for it be it on health front, professional or emotional. It extracts too much out of them. I am sure at some point of time, every woman has thought “I wished I hadn’t neglected myself”
In the picture , I see a woman juggling motherhood and career but also prioritising herself and why not? The lady is doing one of the most difficult core exercise of planks while working on her laptop and she has kept her daughter busy with a mobile. She is really making the best of what she has. Its actually a pretty exhausting picture but one should not get overwhelmed. The thought behind it for me seems to be “my health matters” It is ok to exercise while completing mundane office tasks and keep the child busy with mobile device, so she can finish her self care.
Lets add “me” in the “I need to take care of” list. Good luck!
