Most women spend so much time taking care of everyone else.
So much time worrying about the kids and what they are going to wear for school the next day. So much time making sure their significant other has a meal in front of them. So much time worrying about everything and everyone but themselves.
But that’s not the way things should be.
It’s okay to be selfish and devote some time to yourself. It is perfectly okay for you to get some valuable ME time. Your body can use the break, and your mind could use the peace.
As a Mother and as a Wife the entire structure of a strong family depends on you. If you aren’t 100%, you can’t give those who really depend on you 100%. It all starts with you taking good care of yourself and making sure you are balanced. You must know how and when to take time for you.
Show appreciation for yourself by being selfish with your time, sometimes.
Don’t feel guilty about taking the break that you need to recharge your body and mental. This is not only important for those close to you, but for you too. You need that moment of peace and quiet. ME time can be a trip to the nail salon or a quick meal at your favorite restaurant. Those around you need to know all about your needed ME time and help you accomplish getting it in a timely fashion.
We make time to spend with our children. We realize that we haven’t taken them out for ice cream or something like and make it a priority. We schedule date nights with our partners so we can keep that connection and intimacy flowing. We create nights out with our friends and have the times of our lives. So why not make yourself a priority? Start taking care of you! You only get one life, and it’s yours to take care of. Start taking good care of yourself and devote the time needed just for you. If you don’t start taking care of yourself, who really will?
You are the glue that keeps the strong, healthy family together. If it’s, you and your children or an entire family with a companion just know they all depend on you. You can’t do anything of value for them if you are good on the inside and out.
Start taking care of yourself and don’t feel guilty about that ME time you need to recharge.
