As we enter a new year, we often look to make resolutions and goals for ourselves. There’s one goal that we believe should be on the top of everyone’s list, one that is often overlooked. We challenge you to add pleasure to your new year resolutions. This may seem easy or self-explanatory, however in today’s world the number of women who are lacking pleasure in their lives is overwhelming. Whether they’re over-giving, saying yes to anything, or not asking for what they want, determining what brings you pleasure and not accepting anything else is truly life-changing. So, let’s make 2022 a year of pleasure - and we’ll be here to help you along the way.
Why We Need Pleasure
With the Holidays wrapping up, we’ve found that a lot of women have gone back to that over-functioning, self-sacrificing way of life that we haven’t had to deal with in a while. Whether it’s hosting events, preparing extravagant meals, or letting boundaries be crossed, so many women we work with have commented on how they’re feeling overwhelmed because they’re back to the way things were before the pandemic.
If the past two years have taught us anything, it’s that we can afford to slow down and say no to things without our world crumbling. Without pleasure in our lives, we burnout faster and often carry resentment towards those around us who aren’t giving and over-functioning in the same ways we are.
