Self care tip.....

Are you someone who has experienced imposter syndrome? Here is a little background on imposter syndrome if you have never heard of it before.

Talking to friends, acquaintances, and observing social media, I can see that imposter syndrome is at an all-time high in people these days. Here are some simple tips to start working through and dealing with any level of imposter syndrome you may be encountering.

  • Accept-Be aware when those feelings set in and acknowledge them without being hard on yourself. You are not alone in these feelings!
  • Let Go- Let go of the “perfectionism” thoughts. There is no need to set your standards as high as you do. Be realistic and evaluate your standards against what you would expect of someone else in your shoes.
  • Succeed- Celebrate your wins and successes, both the big and small ones. Remind yourself of what you can achieve!
  • Connect- Connect with like-minded people so you don't feel alone. People who light you up inside, so you can support one another.

Remember, you ARE good enough and worthy of your successes! Don't forget that!

Instead of giving your mom a tangible gift this year, another option could be giving her the gift of quality time with you. Plan a pampering spa day at home, explore a nearby town or cultural area, or just spend intentional time together.
