More Time for Yourself?

Have you ever had the goal to make more time for yourself? If we want to be the best we can be in our roles as parents, co-workers, spouses, friends and members of the community, we must first take time for ourselves.

Taking time for yourself means doing something just for you that you enjoy. You may give yourself the time to read a good book, work on a favorite hobby, exercise, or have a cup of coffee with friends. You could make a date with your spouse, join a Bible study group, get a massage, or spend some quiet time alone.

You may find that making “me time” a priority in your busy schedule will actually help you be more productive. It is a time to rejuvenate, to recharge and to release your stress. We can’t fulfill our roles and give to others if we don’t take the time to give back to ourselves.

Getting organized is not about filling your every waking moment with things to do. One of the major benefits of getting organized is being able to spend more of your time doing the things that you enjoy. What would you do with an extra hour everyday?
