Do you need time out? Ever look around and feel that you want more out of life? Feel like having a tantrum, stamping your feet and screaming at everyone?
Hey, it’s okay to admit it. You’re not alone!
If you’re in a busy career, a high-pressure job, or just generally undergoing some serious stress in your life it’s pretty normal to feel that you’re going to have a meltdown. The pressures of day to day living can really mount up.
Maybe you’re juggling a family. Kids, partners, elderly parents or perhaps all of those. Maybe your workplace is putting on extra pressure.
Whatever the reason…..
It’s important to give yourself permission to get off the crazy train. Permission to take time out. Time to be kind to yourself. Time to refresh, reframe and relax.
In my own life, I am constantly juggling a series of demands placed on me by family and business obligations.
I avoid the crazy train by carving out time for myself each day. Time to meditate, time to reflect and to journal as well as several times a week getting out on the water in the dragon boat. It’s my personal self-care plan, and how I refresh, reframe and relax.
It’s not an easy thing to do. To make time for yourself. It takes discipline and cultivating a habit.
If you’re not in tip-top condition then how can your business thrive? How can you be expected to look after your family? How can you make solid decisions?
Make a little time for yourself today
5 minutes to meditate, 10 minutes to journal, 20 minutes to go for a walk.
Whatever you can manage. Anything is better than nothing.
Do one or better yet do all of these things. The main point is do something for yourself.
Go on, give it a go and see if you feel any different. I bet you will.
