The Importance of “Me Time”: Schedule it, Write it Down, and Enjoy!

Is your busy schedule getting the best of you? Is day-to-day life slowly grinding away at your mental well-being? If so, you might want to consider scheduling some “Me Time!”

What’s “Me Time?” It’s nothing more than taking some time to put aside your everyday business and treating yourself to an activity that you enjoy. It gives you an opportunity to relax, refocus, and recharge.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Unfortunately, for the busy professional, finding time in an already-jammed calendar can be difficult. That’s why it’s important to make time for yourself, schedule it, and write it down in your planner.

Whether it’s dinner with friends, an intense workout at the gym, or a cup of coffee and your favorite magazine, consider your “Me Time” a responsibility to yourself. It’s important that you honor it just as you would any other important commitment or deadline.
