We all know the importance of self-care, also known as the “me” time, at least in theory. But when it comes to practicing it, quite a few people do accomplish it while others are clueless and fail to get around it. This is especially true for people who have a super busy schedule, and find it extremely difficult to make time for self-care activities such as meditation, hitting the gym, writing about their day, or even getting proper sleep. But, that’s the whole point of self-care: you need to make time for yourself especially if you are a busy person. Further, the way COVID has impacted our lifestyle, the importance of self-care couldn’t be more than it is right now.
According to the chief yoga officer of CorePower Yoga Heather Peterson, self-care should be seen as a multiplier of time. Irrespective of whether you set aside just five minutes for a quick meditation session, an hour on cooking food, or a couple of hours practicing yoga daily, you rebuild your focus and energy. And that very energy is channeled back into your work and personal life. In fact, making time for me-time every once in a while ensures that you can build up energy and improve your productivity. And guess the amount of positivity and mental peace it will bring to you if you follow this throughout your lifetime, adds Peterson.
So, even if you are already sold on the fact that you need some “me” time for yourself, whether it is through meditation, trying some relaxing beauty products, or write something in your journal, it is still a long and difficult path to actually accomplish it. In this article, we’ve compiled some expert tips that will help you make some quality me time for yourself.
