How are the happiest people in the world so happy? Well, there are ten habits that attribute to it and here is number six… schedule “me” time for yourself.
This can be especially difficult when we have so many demands on our lives, such as, work, school, children, volunteering, etc. It is good to serve and care for others, but we need to make sure we have time for ourselves to unwind and relax. That might mean that we have to say no to someone we care about, but overscheduling ourselves is good for no one. You don’t want to burn out and resent things that you used to love. That’s why it is important to set boundaries and know when you can and cannot take on more.
Is it really important to have “me” time everyday? YES it is! Here’s why...Tuesday is my least favorite day, because I go non-stop all day until it is time to go to bed. I am missing my “me” time on Tuesdays and by the end of the day I am completely exhausted. Wednesday usually provides me with some relief and time to relax, thankfully. So don’t be like me on Tuesday, and definitely don’t do that everyday. Try to schedule at least 30-60 minutes of “me” time for yourself every day.
So, what do you do during your “me” time to wind down and relax? Do you take a bath, read a book, watch TV, bake cookies, do yoga, write in a journal, go for a walk, sit and chat with loved ones over dinner, or something else? My favorite ways to wind down and relax are to watch TV, chat with my husband over dinner, and go for a hike in nature. My husband and I also love to visit zoos. These Polar Bears look nice and relaxed, don’t they? Tell me in the comments what your “me” time consists of.
