For most of us, the day flys by. You wake up, blink and it’s lunchtime, blink again and it’s dinnertime, before you know it you’re tucked back up in bed drifting off to sleep. A lot of us don’t take time for ourselves in the day, but it is so important for a happy, healthy life. Whatever you enjoy doing, it needs to be done! Even if you can manage 10 minutes a day alone to reflect, reconnect and treat yourself, you deserve it and you’ll feel so much better for it.
However you choose to spend your ‘me time’, make it count! For me, I love running a nice bubble bath, as hot as I can physically handle (tell me it’s not just me?!) and relaxing, until my toes are wrinkly and the water is freezing! I love to paint my nails, catch up on the Kardashians, Catfish, OITNB (love love love!) maybe sneak some chocolate, and just chill. I’ve got a list of things I want to get into, and start making time for. I also want to learn how to manage my time better, and I’ll share it with you along the way!
