The 5 Day Restoration Challenge

Imparted Health Restoration Challenge

Have you ever wondered why you take better care of everyone else than you do of yourself? I know I did. Okay. I do. Toward the end of 2018 I turned 40 and realized I had spent the last two years going through the motions of my life. This wasn’t some midlife crisis! I was present for my kids, somewhat for my husband but felt like I wasn’t showing up for myself.

By now, you know that I’m big on self care… That’s probably because I’ve always been so bad at it! Moms, nurses, CNA’s, healthcare workers, you probably know what I mean. Putting yourself last. Making sure your kids are fed and eating their cold leftovers. Running around all shift long. Forgetting to eat, or not having time to. Staying up late because it’s the only time you have to yourself. Not sleeping because your body is so “off” and your sleep schedule sucks.

Well here’s the thing, it adds up. You can only burn the candle at both ends for so long… And then, boom. The candle is extinguished, and you’re left trying to figure out how to light the fire again. Enter the 5 Day Restoration Challenge - it’s about more than just self care. It’s about re-learning how to put YOU at the top of your list of priorities. 5 Emails. 5 Days. Learn how to show up for yourself so you can keep giving to the people who need you: Your Partner, Your Family, Your People, Your Patients. Come on - You can do anything for 5 days! Sign up below!
