FINDING SOME 'ME' TIME CAN BE HEALTHY
Posted on January 05 2017
Do things that feed you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and you'll bring greater patience and a more positive attitude to your relationships. You’ll become a better parent, spouse, and a more effective team player at work.
Just breathe. Really focus on taking deep breaths. Your mind may wander - that's OK, just gently lead it back from thinking about everything that's on your to-do list. Stretch. Get up from your desk and energize your muscles. Do nothing. Sit quietly. Resist the urge to jump up and clear the table or pick up the kids' toys.
Let your mind and body rest - say 30 minutes to an hour. Get a pedicure. Or a facial. Go somewhere you've never been (a certain museum or a walking trail, perhaps). Write down your dreams and goals in a journal. Fitting in time for yourself is essential so you can make time for your healthy habits.
