It’s been quite a while since my last update. I have been so busy lately and honestly it does not appear that life will be slowing down anytime soon. I’ve setup a few pre-post updates for the next few weeks to make sure I don’t leave the site on hiatus. Life can get crazy whether working, going to school, taking care of your family, preparing for the future and/or helping others. In the midst of that it is so easy to forget about taking care of yourself.
I am the queen of forgetting about myself or putting my needs and wants last. I’ve recently started taking “Me Time” every day. Even if it is just a moment, I put everything aside and do something just for me, by myself. Even as simple as eating breakfast while watching a favorite morning show, curling up with a book or taking a drive. It gives me time to reflect and reconnect with my thoughts and goals. My stress level and peace of mind has decreased so much since starting “Me Time”. I really feel a little bit of alone time, even if just 5 minutes, is very important.
I’ve even made a new rule for myself. Every morning I refuse to do anything work related before I enjoy a healthy breakfast. No booking, no calls, no interviews, nada! I do not even turn on my computer and my phone is off or on silent. Once I’m finished, everything goes on and start my day. I am wondering if anyone else takes “Me Time” and if so what methods do you use to ensure you get your personal time?
