Take a Time-Out for You
It´s Tuesday, you are back into “the grind”, the weekend seems like a distant memory…you already feel like you need a time-out But you can…changes these thoughts and go and Embrace Life, at least for a few minutes each day, take some time-out for you.
How can I take a Time-Out?
- Read a book
- Meditate or even sit quietly. (with no mobile, tablet etc.)
- Make some Yoga or gentle exercise to stretch
- Have a short walk in nature
- Put a meeting with yourself in your diary
- Delegate some of your tasks. Ask your partner to do the food shopping now and then. What about hiring a babysitter?
- Have a leisurely bath
- Choose a hobby that requires concentration by yourself
- Have a power nap – they do it in Japan!
Why do we need a Time-Out?
If we do not take a Time-Out for ourselves, every day will start feeling like murky Monday. But if you have something to look forward to, this can create a feeling of well-being. You can achieve a balance within you. You will find you are less stressed in difficult situations and able to adapt quicker and easier.
So schedule that time just for you, you deserve it!
