One of my favorite time management tips (yes, I have alot of favorites) is to schedule time with yourself for something fun and relaxing. I truly believe that unless you make an appointment with yourself on your calendar for “relaxation time” that you will continue to run, run, run from event to event making time for everyone else but yourself. Make an appointment with yourself just as you would if you had a hair cut appointment at the salon or a cleaning at the dentist.
Whether you need to schedule just one hour a week, one whole hour a day, or even an entire weekend to relax and decompress make sure you put it on your calendar and stick to it! Whatever it is that you need in order to relax honor it just as if it was an appointment with someone else. You deserve to relax and take care of yourself too! Once you start scheduling your “relaxation time” you’ll come to crave it and the rest of your day or week won’t seem quite so overwhelming.
