Lets face it, we all live busy lives.
Whether it is working long hours or endless family commitments, our busy time certainly begins to build up. And that is before we even think about that dreaded to do list that has about a zillion things on it.
Added together, it could be a recipe for overwhelm.
Time to consider some time for ourselves, I think.
What is Me time?
Me time is that period of time just for ourselves.
That lovely space when we step away from our busy lives to do something we love.
Me time can be anything we enjoy. As simple as reading a chapter of a favourite book to lots of hours engrossed in a creative hobby we adore. The possibilities are endless.
Why have Me time?
Having me time allows our brains to disconnect from our busy lives to relax and rest. This period of relaxation can help us to think more clearly as a result.
Personally, I have found that after a period of me time, the spaghetti like a jumble of unorganised and anxious thoughts that were in my head before often seem to organise themselves into something much clearer and have helped me in the past to make a decision that I couldn’t see the answer to before. Definitely a positive thing for my mental health.
It also can help to build our self esteem as often things that we do in our me time bring with them a sense of achievement. Think of those creative hobbies you might have where you are creating something. How good do you feel when it is finished?
So making time for you is definitely a great thing.
