I have a confession. Although I teach self-care, I hate (H-A-T-E) slowing down myself.

Maybe it’s the way we’re hardwired as entrepreneurs. Saying “that’s too much for me to take on right now” feels like failure.

We members of the Wellthy Boss community know in our heads that’s not true–we have all the research and statistics to tell us that investing in our own physical and mental well-being actually leads to better business. But actually putting it into practice can pull up some emotional blocks and even self-doubt for us.

Not that you can’t practice self-care and work hard. You absolutely can, and I believe the reason I’ve been able to build a business while working full-time over the past 4 years is precisely because I’ve developed routines and habits that help me maximize my energy.

But there does come a point in which taking on more projects, more ambitions, and more work hours ultimately becomes counter-productive.

Truth be told? I’ve reached that point. Over the past few months, I’ve poured so much into my work and into others that my own well has run dry.

I never want to lose my excitement for my work or my mission. And by the same token, I want to make sure that I’m always practicing what I’m preaching when it comes to self-care as entrepreneurs.

Which is why I’ve decided to take a brief break for the month of May from the Wellthy Boss Show–to tune in, reflect, refine, and (hopefully) come back stronger than ever with the resources that will help us all thrive in the pursuit of our dreams.

Over the next 4 weeks I’ll be slowing down, reflecting, and then–of course–sharing with you when I come back what this little respite ends up inspiring in my life and work.

I’ll see you in June!

Love,

Mariah
