We have more to give and more energy when we make time for us!
Don’t get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that you forget to take care of your own needs. Nurturing yourself is a necessity, not a luxury!
Set aside relaxation time. Include rest and relaxation in your daily schedule. This is your time to take a break from all responsibilities and recharge your batteries.
Connect with others. Spend time with positive people who enhance your life. A strong support system will buffer you from the negative effects of stress.
Do something you enjoy every day. Make time for leisure activities that bring you joy, whether it be stargazing, playing the piano, reading, spending time with friends or whatever you enjoy.
Keep your sense of humor. This includes the ability to laugh at yourself. The act of laughing helps your body fight stress in a number of ways.
Exercise is also great to include in time for you. People who exercise regularly have more energy, maintain a healthy weight, and are happier since exercise improves your mood.
Try something new. When life feels like it is getting into a rut, it is merely an indication that you are ready to move into a new phase. To do this, you will need to explore new options for hobbies, studying and things that you enjoy that are uplifting.
To me even just soaking in a warm bath feels so good. It gives me a little quiet, calm time away from everything. I like to listen to relaxing music and light a candle also when I take a bath.
Let's all make time for us in our lives :)
