From self care to today's top hits to relationships, today, we talk about it all.
You've never seen a Q&A this exciting!
In today's episode, we hear from Kendall Sparkman, a first year teacher and past Next Level Confident client!
We'll answer questions such as:
How do I incorporate self care into a busy schedule?
How can I better serve myself and others?
What are long distance relationships like?
How do I know if I'm ready to move?
Where can I meet new people? Dating apps?
“To be joy filled, you’ve got to fill yourself up first.”
We all know at least one person who is seemingly always full of joy. What's the secret? Meet your own needs first! It's hard (if not impossible) to fill others up when our own cup is depleted.
For Kendall and I, our faith plays a huge role in how we "fill our cups." Whether you are a religious person or not, it is important to figure out what thing(s) fill you up, and then regularly incorporate them into your daily life.
"Everyone needs self care.”
Self care goes hand in hand with filling yourself up. Just like when you're in an airplane and they tell you to put your oxygen mask on first and then help others if there is an emergency, you need to take care of yourself to take care of others.
Self care might not look the same for everyone but it is necessary for everyone. Whether you have 10 minutes or an entire day, intentionally setting aside time to tune into yourself and relax is so important.
“Do all the boring tasks that suck together.”
How do you know if your significant other is truly compatible with you if you don't live together before marriage? Do all of the boring tasks together! Go grocery shopping together, do laundry together, cook meals together, etc. Sometimes we get so caught up with the fancy/fun dates and "glamorous" aspects of a relationship that we completely forget about the everyday tasks to living (which are obviously important if you're planning on marriage).
