Schedule Some Time for Yourself!

Take out your calendar or planner or smart phone and pencil in some time YOU time!  Grab your To Do List.  What’s on your list?  Is it filled with tasks for work, chores, errands, things for the kids?  Is there anything for you on the list?  Take a pen and write, “ME” at the very top of your list.  It’s time you focused on yourself.

If you don’t have time, then schedule 15 minutes.  If you don’t have money then do something for free.  If you don’t have energy then take a bath or a nap.  If you don’t care about yourself enough to treat yourself to some relaxation, pampering or special time; it’s time that changed.  No one else is going to make sure that you are practicing self-care – YOU have to make time for yourself.

Here are some ways you can take care of yourself

  • Get a massage
  • Take a nap
  • Play in the garden
  • Read a book or magazine
  • Go out with girlfriends
  • Do NOTHING
  • Sit outside (you can also do this and enjoy some tea, coffee, wine or lemonade)
  • Start an art project
  • Dance
  • Sing
  • Do something silly
  • Go for a walk
  • Meditate / Pray / or do something that speaks to you spiritually
  • Cuddle with animals
  • Write in your journal
  • Go to a museum

Do something that recharges you, tickles you, feels good, is relaxing, excites you, gets your juices flowing, or makes you feels special.

Do something that is just for YOU!
