Why “Me Time” is a must..

What is ‘Me Time’?

For me “Me Time”is doing what you want at your own time on your own and totally lose myself in what i am doing. Even an hour a week for Me Time would be beneficial.


Prioritise yourself

Simplest thing as taking time for yourself can be very challenging as we are tend to put others before us especially if you are a parent, prioritising yourself is a luxury in it self.

Though we know self-care is essential for happiness, how many of us would actually take time to ourselves, maybe go for a run? eating well, having enough sleep or pampering religiously?…not a many


Benefits of having a Me Time

Taking time of yourself has Psychological and physical benefits. If you give yourself a break you’ll feel refreshed and happier.
When you focus on an activity just for you, stress levels go down and you have time to recharge the batteries.

“If we keep going we never have a chance to stop and appreciate what we’ve got”

  1. Help us unwind
  2. Make us more productive
  3. Give us time to really think
  4. Enhances self discovery
  5. Helps with our relationship
  6. Re boot our brains


Take action

If you are used to putting others first it’s hard to prioritise yourself, and not feel guilty about it. but remember this isn’t a luxury but a necessity for one’s sanity which in the end will make you a better Parent and partner in the end, if you think you are being selfish then do it for them.

Do you have a Me time? and what do you do? 🙂

    I do agree 100% If I am lucky I tend to go away for a long weekend alone, and that is the best holiday, try it 🙂
