I love the phrase “me-time”
The meaning is so clear. It is the time that I spend with me. Doing what I want. Alone.
Is it depressing to spend time alone?
It could be, yes.
Some people need to be around people. They love to socialise and learn more about others.
I love that too.
But sometimes I need time and space for me. For my thoughts. To relax. To find some quiet.
I find that “me-time” is also an important part of improving my confidence.
When I make “me-time” a part of my routine, I find I have space to really relax my mind. I don’t need to do anything or speak to anyone or think about someone else.
I am Number One.
After my “me-time,” my head feels a lot clearer. When I have a clear head, I find it easier to make decisions and focus on what I am doing.
And when I am decisive and focussed, I feel a lot more confident in what I am doing.
So here’s an activity for you…
- Look at your timetable / schedule / calendar.
- Find some time today. Maybe it’s five minutes. Maybe it’s an hour. Maybe it’s longer.
- Decide what you will do in that time. Choose something you enjoy.
- Be very strict. When that time comes, have your “me-time.”
- See how you feel afterwards.
And let me know.
I know “me-time” works for me. Does it work for you?
