With all the things that need to be accomplished at home and in the office, you’re probably having a difficult time trying to juggle everything. Looming deadlines, pending requirements, a cousin’s birthday coming up, a long grocery list, PTA meeting next week - these are enough to drive anyone crazy!
In the middle of it all, are you still able to spend quality time with yourself? When was the last time you took yourself on a date?
Squeezing in an hour of quality “me time” in your jam-packed schedule is not a waste of time - it’s essential self-care. You need it to stay happy. The busier you are, the more you need to just step away from the world and spend time with yourself.
Spending quality “me time” has numerous benefits such as increased productivity and creativity. It’s a great opportunity to reflect on your life and assess where you are.
If you are looking for ways to spend time with yourself, here are some of our top suggestions:
Interested in calligraphy? How about cooking? If you ever wanted to learn a new skill, now is the perfect time! Nothing can make you feel better about yourself just like learning a skill can. It can help boost your confidence and self-esteem. Instead of choosing something that will look good on your resume or something that will likely make you money, choose something that really sparks your interest and makes you genuinely excited. Remember, this should be all about YOU.
Book yourself a personal session with your favorite trainer or sign up for a class at the new yoga studio near your office. Exercise is a great way to sweat out all the stress and problems bothering you for the past week. Exercise is known to release happy hormones, so you can expect to feel good afterward. Plus, your body will thank you for your efforts to keep it healthy. To keep you motivated, treat yourself to nice exercise gear as well. If you’ve been working hard non-stop, you deserve it!
Stop your fear of dining solo. It’s the perfect opportunity to sti back, reflect and enjoy a delicious meal. Remember the restaurant with the long waiting list? Now is the perfect time to try and get a seat! Going alone can be an advantage because it will be easier for the hostess to find a spot for you. Keep yourself open to the possibilities. Order something different. Chat with strangers. Just enjoy.
Ahhh… Now wouldn’t a weekend in a nice hotel sound nice? Book a room and don’t make any plans to leave the hotel premises during your stay. Enjoy the amenities, Bring a good book. Binge watch your favorite series.
If you only have less than an hour to spare, the best way to enjoy your “me time” is through a relaxing and invigorating bath. By this, we don’t mean a quick cleaning ritual. Pamper yourself with bath products, soak away your stress in the tub and let go of all your worries.
Adding Epsom salt to your bath water is such a huge gamechanger. A good chunk of the population has Magnesium deficiency, which can lead to fatigue and anxiety. Epsom salt can help raise your Magnesium levels and make you feel more relaxed.
What’s even better? Our Epsom salts are enriched with 100% pure essential oils that will give you added aromatherapy benefits. If you are looking for something that can help you relax, we have a Serenity Bath Soak with Frankincense Essential Oil, Grapefruit Essential Oil, Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, & Lavender Essential Oil. These oils smell amazing and will leave you feeling calmer and better.
