Living in limbo. That’s how many of us feel in the days between Christmas and the New Year. We find ourselves reflecting on memorable moments while looking forward with excitement to what’s ahead. ‘Tis the season to make resolutions and we have a good one for you to consider… 2019: The Year of You!
Women are notorious for sacrificing their own wants and needs for the benefit of others. While everyone burns the midnight oil from time-to-time, women take it to the next level. More often than not, we agree to take on new responsibilities even when our plates are already full. Sometimes, we stretch ourselves so thin we compromise our personal health and well-being. This willingness to self-sacrifice is part of what makes us incredible human beings, but we shouldn’t have to pay such a high price as often as we do.
Imagine how life would change if we treated ourselves with as much care and compassion with which we treated others. Over the past several years, the idea of self-care has surged in popularity and left many of us wondering, “is this total BS?” If you’re thinking of self-care as switching off your phone and binge watching Friends instead of picking your kid up from soccer practice, that’s not what we mean. To us, at Rock What You Got (RWYG) presented by Twin Cities Women’s Expo, self-care is learning to accept and appreciate yourself as you are. Our event at the Earle Brown Heritage Center will introduce you to new products, services and ideas. The goal? To help the women of Minnesota become the best version of themselves—all while making new and unique connections with a larger community of women.
It might feel counterintuitive or selfish to care for yourself first in order to better care for everyone else, but there are several real-world examples that prove it’s true. Hop on a plane and flight attendants tell you to secure your oxygen mask before assisting others. On a cruise you’re instructed to put your own lifejacket on first. During our two-day interactive experience, our special guests will offer first-hand knowledge to make your daily life more fulfilling. Whether it’s refreshing your home, a healthy and quick dinner recipe, a fitness class or the latest wellness information, RWYG will stimulate your curiosity.
RWYG challenges women to put themselves first. So, join us on January 25th and 26th to shed the stereotype that self-care is selfish. Buy your tickets today. Then, check out this blog over the next month to learn how we will support you through this transformation in becoming the best version of yourself. And remember to Rock What You Got!
