A Case for the Importance of “Me Time”
“Me Time”… A luxury or a necessity?
When was the last time you had your “me time”? If you’re taking too long to remember…then most probably it has been quite a while since you had one.
With the constant demand and busy schedule of life nowadays, it is really quite hard to squeeze in some “me time” even though we badly want and need it. Women, in particular, wear too many hats so to speak having a different set of priorities, either professional or matrimonial.
As a working woman or mom, it is easy to shrug off the importance of the “Me Time” concept, and sometimes we come to a point thinking that taking time out is a luxury more than a necessity. Sad fact, but it is already happening to most women because we often think we always have to take care of others first. We tend to forget that investing in our well-being enables us to do more and give more to everyone else around us.
No doubt, taking out time for yourself also improves your behavioral pattern both professionally and as a parent. This makes everyone around you happy too.
Setting aside time for yourself should not be that complicated.
Here are some tricks to make sure you get your “Me Time” you truly deserve.
What relaxes you: In fact, you can simply ask yourself “What relaxes your emotions and stress levels? You can engage in activities like reading, painting, music, cooking, playing with kids, or whatever soothes your mind would do wonders for the general mental and physical balance.
Make time for “Me Time”: No doubt, every working woman or a mom is busy in their own schedules. However, if you could keep in mind squeezing some time, which should be earmarked to take care of your requirements, it would greatly help everyone in the family. In other words, you should prioritize time to YOU too as an essential and indispensable item of your regular activity.
Weekends: Women who feel that they are not able to allocate the required time for “Me Time,” should keep the weekends to themselves. If you realize the significance of “Me Time” is as important as other primary items, you will assign the time at least on weekends.
Adhere to the Schedule: Many times, those who have included the Me Time activity may skip because of other activities getting extended. Do not allow to eat away the Me Time schedule at any cost. You can consider postponing any other activity, but not the Me Time.
Set Boundaries: It is good to devote some time to others. However, there is nothing wrong in setting certain limits to the demands of others.
“Me Time” includes any activity that relaxes your mental and physical fatigue. You can engage yourself in any creative activity and devote time in pursuing your habits for relieving yourself from the stress level.
