Have you been lucky enough to have the opportunity to have a break from your normal routine?
After a holiday you’ll feel relaxed and energised both mentally and physically. You’ve had time to focus on yourself – some me-time. Even if you can’t get away, it’s still important for your health to have some me-time. You just may need to be a little more creative and determined in finding a little time each week for yourself.
The Benefits of me-time
By showing yourself the same level of care and kindness that you show to others will stimulate your feel-good hormones; giving you more physical and mental energy. Being kind to yourself by having me-time should be an essential part of your selfcare routine. It will support your mental and emotional health and increase your feelings of self-worth.
What can you do?
Think about how good you felt the last time you did something for yourself and have the desire to want those feelings again.
Make a list of ten things you like doing, you used to like doing or you would like to try. Ten things may seem like a lot but this is to push you and get you thinking.
Now choose up-to three things from your list that you can do in the next 7 days.
MAKE IT HAPPEN!
With a can-do attitude you will find a way to make it happen. It may require you to: –
- think outside the box
- break it down into small steps
- seek help from others
- make changes to your usual routine.
Commit some time to it, however small, and you will have some time to call your own.
Having a holiday or some time away is great but making some time for yourself on a regular basis is important too.
