A couple of days ago I heard something interesting on a podcast. It's related to sleep and the fated F.O.M.O. (fear of missing out). There are numerous reasons why people have trouble falling asleep at night. Personally, when I am experiencing trouble it is most likely because I think of all the tasks I still have to do or COULD be doing, instead of winding down. I say "could" instead of "should" because if I'm honest, the tasks I did not complete have never negatively effected my business.
So what's a woman to do? Instead of thinking of sleep as the end of a day, view it as preparation for the next day. Sleep is your first "task", albeit the most enjoyable one by far, and it kicks off all other tasks. So it also makes it my most important task of my day.
Sleep is not the ending. It is my beginning. <3
My clients and members have allowed me the grace of growing and adapting as a coach and business owner. This is a loyalty and a mutual respect that cannot be bought. I hope that I continue to question myself, inspire my coaches to question themselves, and develop a team where every member knows they are cared for and safe. FitPOWER is where everyone should be allowed an opportunity to question and grow.
Now this person may have had some wonderful information to give to us, the reader. I wasn't there to hear it, though. You see, I have clients who I do not tell to "chill". Anxiety, depression, being bipolar, etc. These are lenses in which people see the world. This is the world they are used to experiencing.
So. I humbly suggest that you view the world through different lenses. Your experience is not their experience. Guide. Do not drag. Let them be the hero in their own story.

Dear New Diary,
I just past 3rd Grade, and Im' going on to foarth. I got out at 11:35, and the day was Monday, June 13, 1994. I got Mrs. Granger as a foarth grade teacher. I'm so excited.
Some items are measurable. The cost of rent. Supplies. Equipment. These are things someone has already applied a number to. But your time is something you will never get back. What is it worth to you?
To be worthy means you have specialized characteristics or skills that deserve merit, or in the case of business, payment. The topic of worth applies to all individuals, but I seem to run into this conflict most often with women business owners. Here is just two cents of advice: you must deem yourself worthy to ask for what you are worth.
