Ever felt that 24 hours are just not enough for you and you wish to add more time in a day to use it for activities that you love doing?
Sometimes we all get tied up with tons of chores and responsibilities to the extent of being explosive at the end. That is definitely not good for your health, mind and body. It is vital to take a break and calm down when your stress level reaches an alarming level and all you do is miss yourself being happy.
We lead hectic lives. And the one important person we never seem to have time for is our ‘own self’. If everyone else around you is worthy of care and attention, so are you. You not only deserve some time, but you need it for your own well-being and development. Inadequate dedication of “me” time will leave you frustrated, agitated and cranky, taking you away from the better part of the life. So, opt for a better you by trying some of ways of spending time with yourself.
Reserve Some Time For Yourself
You first need to decide that you deserve some time for yourself each day. When you are tired, stressed out and pulled in too many directions, it is hard to give your best. Remember, self-time is not selfish—it’s a necessary dimension of self-care!
Decide How Would You Like to Spend Your ‘Me’ Time
Decide which activity you enjoy the most. If you had an extra 15 minutes, an afternoon or an entire day, what would you do to make yourself feel rejuvenated, relaxed and happy? Write a list and keep it handy when you begin scheduling time into your calendar.
Give Importance to Your “Me” Time
At the beginning of each week, take a few minutes to designate specific time slots for all that must be accomplished—including “me” time. Treat your personal time like you would any other appointment and make it invariable.
Learn to Say “No”
You must learn to say ‘no’ to requests to do things that you really don’t value much.
Ask For Help
Ask for help with chores that don’t necessarily have to be completed by you alone. This shall help you get some moral and physical support.
So, stop wishing you had more time to yourself, and commit to carving it into your schedule. Change your approach and create the time using the tips above. You will be amazed at how some time taken for you can make a huge difference in your health and happiness. It shall surely guide you to a better stress-free living!
