Why Me Time is vital to your health!

Ever hear the airlines during their safety drill say “put your oxygen mask on before helping others?!?” This. Is. Absolutely. True. What a great reminder to self-care and learn the importance of Me Time. Ditch the guilt because you can’t pour from an empty cup. I know you may be thinking "I don't have time for Me Time".  There is no right answer to how to get more alone time but I have some ideas.

How to take time for yourself

Most of us know that self-care is essential so why is it challenging to actually do it? Probably because we typically live our life in “shoulds.” How we think we “should” feel, act, or be instead of being true to what we want out of each experience. Kick the should to the curb and take time for you! Have you ever noticed after taking a time out, you feel recharged, relaxed, rested, calmer and more patient? You might even notice improved concentration, enhanced relationships, and overall mental clarity. We all use different methods that speak to us individually but here are my top 10 Me Time Tips.
10 Ways to Carve out Me Time
1. Spend 15 minutes in silence or meditate. It is a great time for mindful, self-discovery because the quieter you become, the more you can hear.
2. Pour a cup of hot tea, coffee, or who are we kidding, a glass of wine & take in each sip knowing this is just for you.
3. Sign up for a yoga class to rejuvenate your mind, body & soul.
4. Invite a friend out. Creating a supportive relationship is key.
5. Write down 3 things that you love about yourself! Write it on your bathroom mirror so you will see it every day.

6. Journal about a goal you have been putting off that you really want to achieve. Determine why you have put it off & find a way to make it happen.
7. Take a walk & be aware in the nature that surrounds you.
8. Take 3 deep breaths while you smile. Smiling will automatically put you in a better mood.
9. Diffuse 2 drops of lavender + 2 drops of sweet orange essential oil. My favorite blend to create a relaxing & uplifting mood.
10. Take a long hot relaxing shower or bath & treat yourself! 😊

 

Encouraging you to pause, to carve out me time with beautiful nourishing rituals to renew and revitalize your skin and soul will always be my MO.

Enjoy 1 or more tips every single day. 

XO,
