How do you embody self-respect?

In a culture that glorifies business, it’s easy to overextend ourselves: making the days longer by making the nights shorter, working through lunch, blowing off exercise, and beating up ourselves not meeting our own standards.  It can be easy not to notice that comfort behaviors, like numbing out with Netflix and a bag of chips have become regular substitutes for feeling connected to ourselves, our loved ones, intuition and creativity.

Until you realize you’re not in the body you want, you’re not experiencing the joy you want, but you don’t know quite how to break the cycle.

Is it time to put yourself at the top of your own to-do list and start embodying self-respect?

What would that even look like?  You’d get enough rest, eat, move, breathe, and connect in ways that honor your being, not just your doing.

You’d set boundaries to have more time for what matters most.  You’d feel less stressed, more calm and confident. You’d feel lighter and more comfortable in your body.  You’d experience more joy And leading by example, you’d help everyone around you do the same.

This is what we do in my Level Up group.

I believe that you have the RIGHT to take care of yourself, and that self-care is not only not self-ish. It’s essential to your ability to show up for your family, and your work in the world as the best version of you.

It’s also essential change a culture, being the change we want to see. It’s hard to go against the grain of an entire culture by yourself; it’s way easier in community.

If you’re ready to start honoring your being (not just your doing), check out my Level Up page and apply to join this life-changing community.
