The author talks about the importance of ‘me time’ for women, who are mostly overwhelmed with the burden of responsibilities and are stressed.
I’ve always been a fan of having some or shall I say a lot of “ME TIME” as it lets me be ‘me’. Being who you are is utmost important to be in alignment with our values and beliefs and also to build courage and maintain our own identity.
I believe there isn’t any women who doesn’t like having some time for their own self out of their busy schedules. Still, if you disagree, probably you are already getting some time for yourself. Lucky you!
But yes there are many who would like to know as to how to get or take some time out for themselves? Most of the time, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world, which tries to influence who you are and what shall you give priority to.
This pressure increases manifold especially when you’re a woman and motherhood adds on to it. ‘Me time’ is enjoying some quality time with yourself.
The main reason why we women don’t get our ‘me time’ is because we play multiple roles together. We play the role of a wife, mother, daughter-in-law, leader. We just run around all day to accomplish multiple tasks and are adjusting in every step of the way. And we don’t realize but we get exposed to depression, low self-confidence, anxiety and stress.
One of my friends, has a two year old daughter. She’s a SAHM. She was working as an international air hostess before welcoming her little angel in this world. While she was discussing her present life and issues related to it, I realized that the main issue was that she needed some ‘me time’. She didn’t get any ‘me time’ for the last two years. She hasn’t been out for a movie, she waits for months before she visits a parlor, as she doesn’t take care of herself thinking she doesn’t have to go out anywhere. She herself doesn’t remember when did she last spend a little time with herself.
I could so relate to her as I was in the same state, till my daughter turned one but, fortunately I figured it soon and started working on it and now I’m my FIRST priority.
Sometimes you have to break from the grind, clear your mind and enjoy some “ME” time.
Ladies! It’s alright to keep the baby with the dad or someone close for a few hours or for a day and go out.
Self Care is essential for happiness and it can be done in many different ways.
You might need to explore what works for you but surely you should figure it out before it gets too late and lose your real self in the grind.
Just fall in love with yourself again and each day my darling!
