Create Daily Me Time – Once you understand that taking time out for yourself is a contribution then it’s time to schedule it. It is important to keep your integrity to yourself when declaring your “me” time. Set aside some time daily. If you are like most, this may seem near impossible; but guess what? You can find 15 minutes every day.
Use that 15 minutes to think about things you would like to do to make your life better. Use it to write a note to someone you haven’t seen for a while. Use that 15 minutes to dream about your future. It’s your 15 minutes…so do whatever you want with it. But don’t use it doing chores, or doing something that someone else wants you to do. This is “Me Time” so make sure you are doing what YOU want.
If you don’t respect your personal time, no one else will. Take your 15 minute meditation time in the morning or your daily time out on the front stoop just listening to nature; read a spiritual book like the Book of Psalms which will take you a few mere moments every day.
Let Others Know You are Serious about Your Personal Time – Once you have an established amount of time and set time of day, let everyone know you have a big, “Do Not Disturb” sign on your back. It’s fifteen minutes a day for goodness sake. Everyone will survive without you for a while.
To your future
