Sometimes you have to give yourself permission to slow down. When you take time to process what you’re going through, you give yourself an opportunity to release it. That’s an act of self-love!

If you don’t take the time to process through what you’re going through, it can pile up and weigh you down.

Friend, you are worthy of taking care of yourself in a kind and thoughtful way.

Here are some of the best ways to slow down and pour into yourself when you’re feeling a lot:

01: Breathe deep
02: Move your body
03: Talk it out with a therapist or trusted friend
04: Journal about your experience
05: Meditate and imagine yourself letting go

You are already enough. If there are things in your life that don’t make you feel like you’re enough, call them out. Get to the root of them. Identify why you don’t feel like you’re enough and see if there are any creative ways for you to process through them.

Friendly reminder: You are enough.

With Love from your Fitness Coach & Wellness Obsessed BFF,
Madison | The Fit Flamingo

Hi, I’m Madison Deaton. As a personal trainer, nutrition and self-love coach, I focus on the inside first, helping you get to the root of why you think and feel the way you do. Then I use things like functional fitness, holistic nutrition, mindset and self-love tools to help you connect with yourself on a deeper level, see things from a new perspective, and unlearn habits that no longer serve you so you can take up space, step into your power, and become the woman of your dreams (friendly reminder: she has been YOU all along). Welcome to The Fit Flamingo! I’m so glad you’re here.
