Making Time For Yourself
Build your tomorrows one today at a time.
Today will have 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, and 86,400 seconds. How much time will you give yourself?
30 minutes a day for yourself can make it possible for you to live longer. If taking that 30 minutes for yourself does give you a longer life, it cost you nothing.
Taking 15 minutes to be sure your day is organized so that you accomplish more?…that 15 minutes saved more than the time it took.
If you take another 15 minutes to meditate and pray, call a friend, or do a favor, chances are good you will not only live longer because you did, but you will be happier, too.
The total, if you build those things into your everyday schedule, is just one of the 24 hours. That leaves 8 for sleep, 8 for work, and 7 for everything else (but be sure to use some of that for love, for meaningful sharing, for fine and healthy foods, and for something that adds to your learning and knowledge.)
Moderation, simplifying, doing the mandatory things daily living requires, all those are important. But time for yourself adds to the length and the quality of life. Call it an investment in the future by taking advantage of it today..
