Finding Time for Yourself

We all live pretty hectic lives. Our cell phones, text messages, and emails follow us home and demand attention when we are supposed to be relaxing and focusing on family and friends. However, always being available creates stress, and we all need time to unwind and relax.

One of the main reasons we don’t spend time alone is not for a lack of time, but because we don’t make our needs a priority.  Waking up early in the morning before anyone else arises is a good way to find alone time. During these early hours, no one will call, and no one in the house will ask for anything. Take this time to have a leisurely breakfast, do yoga, exercise, meditate, or read the newspaper. When we ease into the day, we are better able to move through the day with happiness and relaxation.

Don’t feel guilty about needing alone time. It’s necessary. Always being on the go and thinking of others first is not healthy and will add more stress to already stressful lives. By spending alone time, we can maintain our health, stay on top of the game, and be more positively productive.
