Me time is not all about relaxing and doing next to nothing, it’s also about indulging your guilty pleasures. When I say guilty pleasures I am not talking about anything criminal just something you enjoy. It could be anything from binge watching your favourite shows to eating a tub of ice cream alone.
The concept of me time has been around for the longest time but it’s only in recent years it’s been the centre of attention. For mama’s this is something they crave dearly but mummy guilt gets in the way for many or there is never the time. Millennials also sing the same song re me time but are always attached to their devices to have real me time. For me personally me time is about intentionally setting sometime in a day or week where I just enjoy the present. The majority of my me time involves me tucking into my guilty pleasures which there are many of.
Disclaimer: We all lead different lives, what works for me might not work for you. You have to assess your life and see where you can make room for me-time and how often. Only you know your schedule and though it might be hectic there are times you can squeeze in me time.
