A Little “Me Time” Taking some Time for Yourself
This video is about taking some time for yourself. So many of us are so busy with raising a family, jobs, organizations etc. That we forget to make time for ourselves. Many patients of mine that are older have often told me that taking time for their self was the one thing that they never did and wish they had. It could be anything that makes you feel good. Exercise, art, reading and or mix it up a little during the week etc. Make it fun and relaxing, but get “your me time”.
I use exercise as my me time, because it make me feel good. This particular video, I was out for a walk with our puppy and enjoying some fresh air. Other days it could be weight lifting or yoga. My family life is just like yours, wake the children up and get them ready for school, breakfast etc., it feels like we all run run run all day long, and then before we know it, the day is done and we are exhausted mentally, emotionally and physically. Everything is scheduled during the week, so I do have to find my “me time“, when ever I can. Early in the morning, or later at night when the kids go to bed, which could me 9pm. Taking the time to enjoy your life, makes you a happier person, emotionally, physically and mentally. And during the everyday stress of it all you can bet your mind will look forward to that “me time”, but if You don’t create that time,no one will for You. Just don’t wait and regret that special time! I can tell you, your children will become more in tune with you and recognize when you didn’t have that “me time” . Explain to your children what you are doing, and how it’s going to make you feel. simple things like ” you know how mommy is grouchy sometimes, well this is going to make me less grouchy”. If your a single mom, or a mom with a traveling husband or he is gone all day working, force yourself to find the time, ask a neighbor to watch your children for 20 min and take a walk, again waking up early or after the kids go to bed, but find that special time because Life is Stressful and we all need a Mental Health Break.
Enjoy what is around you, Because Life is too Short!
