Making Time for Yourself
In this modern world we live in there are work commitments, family commitments, hours spent on social media or answering emails and all sorts of other demands placed on us. But what about time for yourself?
Too often we neglect our own needs by trying to keep up with what we think we need to do, but that can easily lead to burnout and feelings of resentment if we're not careful.
It's something I've been guilty of myself in the past, and I'm sure you can relate to it too. You know, that feeling that you have no time for yourself to do the things that you want to do. Life doesn't need to be like that though and I have a challenge for you...
Starting right now, I'd like you to make some time for yourself. Even if it's only 10 minutes so you can sit down with a cup of tea. From this very day, make a commitment to yourself to do something for YOU each and every day.
Maybe you could run yourself a nice hot bubble bath in the evening and enjoy a soak in it. Perhaps you could go for a daily walk to get some fresh air and exercise. Maybe you can arrange to meet up with a friend once a week and get in touch with other friends on the other days. Or possibly you could just sit down and do absolutely nothing.
We all deserve a bit of 'me time'. You deserve some 'me time'. As you get into the habit of focusing on yourself a bit more, you will eventually thank yourself for that gift.
By spending more time on yourself on your needs, you may also find it has a knock-on effect in other areas of your life and you become more productive in those other areas. It will enable you to recharge your batteries and feel like you have more energy to do everything else.
Give it a go and notice how good it makes you feel. And remember that there is always time for yourself!
