While running a business for ourselves, we often often forget to take care of ourselves. This paradox plagues many entrepreneurs who pour their hearts and souls into their own companies, leaving no time or energy to care for their bodies and minds. Too often, our personal needs are displaced by those of our businesses and families. We think that respite is just around the corner, only to find that each entrepreneurial success leads to more stress and less free time. 

The truth is that there is never a perfect time to take time for ourselves. No one is going to hand us the license to care for our minds, bodies, and spirits. As entrepreneurs, we must make the proactive choice to factor ourselves into our own lives. However, such a simple concept can be exceedingly difficult to put into practice, not only because of time constraints, but also because self-care is completely foreign to many of us.

Enter the Self-Care Series for Entrepreneurs. This monthly series is the brainchild of Hera Hub Carlsbad Owner, Entrepreneur, and Life Strategist Lisane Basquiat, and Hera Hub member and publisher of EPIC (Empowering People, Inspiring Community) Magazine, Virginia Rodriguez. The goal of the series is to help entrepreneurs stop depriving themselves and start learning easy ways to care for themselves so that they can run a business that does not unsurp every last ounce of their time, energy, and sense of well-being. On the last Wednesday of each month at Hera Hub Carlsbad, engaging and inspiring speakers in the fields of holistic health, emotional and mental wellness, spirituality, and mindset will teach business owners how to incorporate self-care as a practice into their lives. Laughter and playfulness abounds and complementary food and beverages are served by community sponsors. The proceeds from each event will benefit a different local nonprofit organization.

The first event in the Self-Care Series for Entrepreneurs featured Dr. Anne Jenkins, a chiropractor and wellness educator whose passion in life is assisting people in transforming the health of their bodies and lives through advanced health and wellness strategies. During her session, she focused on providing us the tools to create more energy within our own bodies. Learn more about Dr. Jenkin’s transformative chiropractic practice here.

The next event in the series will be on June 26, 2019 at 6:00pm. Lisane Basquiat will lead a workshop on how our beliefs, programming and the relationship we have with ourselves shape how we are experiencing our life stories. Ms. Basquiat will help us recognize the power of our relationships with ourselves; gain an understanding of how language affects our worlds; and walk away with a plan for shaping a future that is better aligned with our authentic scripts.
