With back-to-school in a full wing, there is so much to do and it seems that there is so little time for everything. Once the routine kicks in the things get a little better, but it still takes a lot of juggling to keep everything going smoothly. After school activities, play dates, doctor appointments, household chores, and homework will take a huge bite out of your time and it seems difficult to find some “me time” on your hectic schedule.
I know that we sometimes feel guilty about taking some time off, as there are tons of things to do and so many people to take care of, but according to Sherrie Bourg Carter Psy.D.,
… taking care of yourself is something that you should never feel guilty about. It not only models healthy behavior for the ones you love, it also keeps you happy, healthy, and strong so that you can continue doing what fulfills you; and if that’s taking care of others, then you’re in an even better position to do that.
So once in a while, pencil in some “me time” in your overscheduled calendar. Spend some time reading, take a relaxing bath, go out with your friends or whatever strikes your fancy. Do something you want to do, not something you have to do.
If you are interested in something fancy, like a massage or a couple of divine hours in a day spa, but it does not work well with your budget, check out Healthy, Beauty & Wellness Groupons! You can find deals up to 82% off of different massage and spa packages.
