So often, women are busy caring for everyone: children, husband, parents,
and co-workers among others that they forget to take care of themselves. They
often develop that superwomen complex. "A woman with

strong and self-sufficient as defined by Urban Dictionary." As we approach the holiday season, it is time
that you slow down and change things in your life.
