Showing Up Big!
If you were to fo back in time to your 10 or 11 year old self and ask if being a parent was challenging, what do you think you’d say?
Now there are obvious things that would influence this answer, but in a general sense what would your answer be?
I know I would have more than likely said no.
Parents have it easy. They can do whatever they want and they get to tell their children what to do.
Wow! How skewed our view can be as a child, huh?
Being a parent myself to a beautiful 2 ½ year old I know how challenging it can be.
It’s not all sunshine and rainbows all the time.
Raising another human being is challenging, yet heart bustingly (yes, I made that word up) beautiful at the same time.
In that process of raising a child it becomes easy to get so involved in doing everything humanly possible for them that we (the parent) lose track of ourselves. We put the well being of our children so far above our own that we may begin to lose sight of what our own well being looks like.
I am a firm believer that these things should happen for our kiddos, but not in place of taking care of ourselves!
I invite you to consider that in order for you, as a parent, to continue to show up BIG for your kids (as you should) that you need to first show up BIG for yourself!!!
Showing up big for yourself means taking care of your own health and well being the absolute best you know how.
Eating healthy, running, weight training, yoga, Pilates, float tanks, cryotherapy, red light sauna’s, etc.
Wherever you fall on the spectrum of “wellness” do those things.
One last thing I invite you to think about is that in order to get the most out of your wellness practice and show up bog for yourself you’ve got to be connected… to yourself first and foremost!
Not just on a esoteric/ spiritual level, but physically as well.
Your nervous system (brain, spinal cord, spine, nerves, neurotransmitters) is the basis of that connection and the more optimally it is functioning the better connection you have.
Chiropractic care helps restore that optimal connection by facilitating optimal function throughout the nervous system.
The time is now.
Start showing up for yourself, so that you can continue to show up for your kids more and more!
