If you’re used to putting others first, it’s hard to put yourself at the top of your priority list, but everybody needs to recharge their battery.
Healthy Habits For a Happier You!
SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOURSELF
Why Make Time
Taking time may at first blush seem selfish, but other people benefit from your “me time” too. Consider this, me time has both psychological and physical benefits. You’ll feel refreshed, be happier and have more patience. You’ll have an improved frame of reference and when you’re thinking more clearly, you make better decisions. Avoid being a grump, taking a little time for yourself boosts your mental wellbeing and can improve your mood and energy level.
How Much Time
Give yourself a half an hour a day, even if you have to break it up into two fifteen minute increments. Schedule it, put it on your “to do” list, whatever you have to do to make it happen, every day.
How to Use it
Here’s the fun part because the possibilities are endless! Enjoy a cup of your favorite beverage, look at a beautiful piece of art, listen to your favorite music, meditate, take a walk, read a book, sit in the sunshine, keep a journal, count your blessings,… The point is to do what refreshes and re-energizes you.
