Make Time For Yourself
It’s difficult to let ourselves slow down, to take the time we must have for ourselves. We frequently ignore the admonition to stop and smell the roses. Our culture is wired to keep us very busy, but not healthy and happy. It’s time to reject this construct. We can show you how.
As Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul, says,
“We seem to have a complex about busyness in our culture. Most of us do have time in our days that we could devote to simple relaxation, but we convince ourselves that we don’t.”
It seems there is always something that needs doing, always someone who needs our attention. That couldn’t be truer. There are tens, if not hundreds of people making demands on our time. We could easily work ourselves to death in a fruitless effort to obtain perfection and the associated accolades. The accolades will never come. We’re not perfect; we’re just people.
You can take the time you need for yourself while rendering significant service to others.
“We don’t get a lot of support in this culture for doing nothing. If we aren’t accomplishing something, we feel that we’re wasting time.“
It’s possible to take the time you need for yourself while providing more for others than you dreamed possible.
