Google ‘Me time’. You will get the following answer:
Time spent relaxing on one’s own as opposed to working or doing things for others, seen as an opportunity to reduce stress or restore energy.
REDUCE STRESS OR RESTORE ENERGY- Read that? You now know why ‘me-time’ or ‘self-care’ is important. It is for one’s happiness and inner peace.
It is very difficult to find time for ourselves in today’s daily grind. Whether you are working 9-5 or a home maker or a busy mom, you will always feel nice to stop and take some time of for yourself. It is not a selfish act or a waste of time. This is your chance to get rid of all that stress. We all have a supportive family who would want the best for us, and want us to have some time for ourselves. So make use of it.
It could be as simple as going out for a walk listening to your favorite music or podcast or pampering yourself with a haircut or mani/pedi. Get a nap whenever possible, never pass it up, it is pure bliss!! Go to the beach, get some fresh air. Or spend time reading a novel or watching a movie you will enjoy. Do any activity you like and enjoy if that gives you satisfaction. Always schedule some time just for yourself. Everybody needs some me-time to get back to the grind with a stable and peaceful mind. Do it whenever possible, a weekday or a weekend, but always have time allotted just for your relaxation rituals.
When I get a break from my daily schedule , I love to sleep, or listen to music, sometimes dance to it…(jungli dance of course, do not imagine any classy moves here!! 😄). Sometimes I go to the mall and spend time window shopping, or sometimes go to a restaurant for lunch alone. Despite the weird looks I get, I eat until my stomach is full and happy. 😊
Alone time :
-Reboots your brain
-Improves your concentration
-Makes you more productive
-Helps in self discovery
-Allows time for deep thinking
As much as I love company, I enjoy my ME TIME too. Similarly, all of you guys there need some time away from your normal day to day , just to focus on yourself. Your self care idea could be different from mine, but it could be the reset you need. For me this is a priority. I hope this inspires you to do the same.
Let’s say this is the time to just be, recharge and reset.
