5: How I still make time for myself in summer madness




We’re in the middle of summer madness and it’s great and so much fun! But also, I’m wondering: Are you making time for yourself? Are you showing up every day in little ways for yourself, even though there’s a lot going on? 

Because, yes, summer can be an awesome time to hang as a family and it can mean more on your plate, less time to actually get things done, and SO MANY MEALS TO MAKE. Why do these people need to eat so very, very often?!?!

Today, we’re going to talk about how to still make time for yourself during what can be one of the busiest seasons of the year. By the end of this episode, you’ll have real, tangible tips to make sure that you are making yourself a priority in your own life. 

In this episode we talk about:

  • Why you’ve gotta prioritize yourself, regardless of the season
  • How I’ve learned to manage the daily, summer chaos while still making time for myself
  • Why daily self-care is so essential and how you can start filling yourself back up
  • Mom Guilt! Why she sucks so bad and tips for making her settle down 
  • The mindset shift you’ve got to make to prioritize your own self-care
  • Introducing “Fill Me-Ups” – a tried and true method to get you showing up for yourself every day
  • How practicing joy and small actions can totally change your life (and practical tips to start doing it today!)
  • Why we all need you to make yourself a priority in your own life

5: How I still make time for myself in summer madness

Hi! I'm your host, Kara!

I'm a formerly "fine" person, who now is living life fully in color. It's not perfect - it's real and messy, but it feels like me.

But, holy cow, it was SUCH A LONG ROAD to get here and I made every mistake in the book.

Which is why I started the "University of Being Yourself" podcast. So, hopefully, you can learn from my mistakes!

We'll get real about fun, mental health, and, yes, self-improvement, and I promise you'll walk away with tangible tips you can use to start making real life small shifts. 

Are you ready to have some fun together?
