Yesterday I took a me day.
What is a me day?
It is a day where you do what YOU want to do. Nothing else. All responsibilities becomes someone else’s for that day.
So what did I do with all that me time?
Well, first of all, I only got out of bed at 8 am.
Then I gave myself a pedicure and a manicure – something I just never make time for. After that I tidied up the house – something else that I have neglected for far too long. Being busy is not that great an excuse.
Something I have been meaning to do but literally never had the time for, is to make a video of my hair routine. I will post that on Facebook.
By 12:15 pm I finally applied make-up and diffused my hair.
Hubby made lunch.
The rest of the afternoon I spent doing things online that lately I don’t have time for.
Supper was take-away. The only ‘productive’ thing I did, was to take a meeting with hubby after 8 pm.
Why did I do it?
Because I needed to regroup, refocus and recharge my energy. Being an ambivert I need alone time to recharge. I have been surrounded by people 24/7 for the last 7 weeks. I was about to explode. I needed silence.
Today I can face the world again.
Go ahead, make time for YOU!
