Be Kind to Yourself

Overwork, overextending yourself with obligations and a busy family life can lead to stress. It can also deprive you of some much-needed personal time. Setting aside time to relax or to do something enjoyable and nice for yourself can ease stress, make you more productive at work and improve your general mood.

Quiet Time

One reason for writing appointments on your calendar or setting reminders on your phone is to assure that you don’t forget obligations. To assure that you don’t neglect yourself, write quiet time on your schedule. Try making it a daily occurrence. Use that time to read, nap, write, draw, color, take a walk alone or with the dog or do something that is mentally and physically relaxing.

Fun Days

You can be kind to yourself by scheduling in fun days. These days can be used to do whatever makes you happy. A shopping trip, a visit to a local art gallery, attending a concert or movie or any other enjoyable activity can be considered a fun day activity. You might want to use this day to visit someone you haven’t seen in a while. Taking a gift such as an angel wing hoop earrings, a plant, flowers or a special food item to them could be something that makes both of you happy.

Pamper Yourself
There're lots of acts of kindness you can do for yourself to brighten your day, ease your stress or make you feel special. Wearing a piece of jewelry that symbolizes hope, love and faith can inspire and encourage you throughout the day. Picking up some flowers for yourself on your way home can make your house more cheerful and brighten your day. Order a gift basket for yourself. When it arrives, you’ll feel as special as any gift recipient would.

There’s nothing heroic about staying so busy you never have time for yourself. There’s nothing selfish about claiming a portion of a day or week as personal time. Being kind to yourself can have a positive impact on your daily life.

  2. A little me-time is good. To recharge and get away from the hectic schedule, even it is for few minutes only.
