Taking time for you

Taking time for you can mean a limitless number of things, can't it? It can mean doing things that you haven't done for yourself, in awhile, for example, getting your nails done or getting your hair done. without being bothered by kids or work. That is taking time for you.

How many times do you hear the question “Have you taken time for you”? if you are a parent you hear this from your own parents when they come over limitless times, and see you looking disbelieved or running ragged. Most parents don’t even think of taking time for themselves because their goal is there, children come first. So when they take time for them it’s usually after nine o’clock at night when the kids are in bed. When you take time for you what is it that you do? I guess it depends on the time of day, and what has happened throughout it. Taking time for you could mean just getting into your pj's and watching television, without any distractions.

It could mean a limitless number of things, for example taking an hour long shower, or going for a walk, to clear your head. It could be just sitting in silence, or reading a book. If you are ambitious it could be going to the grocery store or getting your nails done, just to do something that benefits you. That is what taking time for means doesn’t it, doing something that will benefit you. That is what it is supposed to mean, but most of the time it is just you sitting and relaxing after a hard day of work and chasing after the kids. Back to the question at the beginning after the day of chasing your kids or answering phones, cooking dinner and cleaning have you taken time for you? Almost everyone is actually going to have to think about it. They don’t know the answer right off the top because they have been so busy doing other things. Depending on what you have going on in your life at the time, taking time for yourself, can be something you wish you could do on a limitless basis but we all know that can't happen.

What does taking time for you mean exactly? That is what everyone is probably asking, taking time for you, means doing things that you want to do, with nothing else in the way, like kids, or a job. Doing something that you have wanted to do for a while or if you just thought of something off the top of your head that you want to do, and you go out and do it. You are doing something that you want to do, that is what taking time for you actually is. Most of the time taking time for you is difficult with everything else that you have to do, but if you don’t take time for you what can that do to you and the people around you. This goes back to the question again “Have you taken time for you”? When you take time for you, you can do anything you want. As I mentioned before.

You Deserve Time For You

I am a freelance journalist and blogger, so I work from home, so you probably think that I can take time for me whenever I want. I can but I schedule my me time because if I didn’t I wouldn’t get anything done. I would just do things that interest me. Rather than getting any blogging or freelance reporting done. That is why I have to schedule everything. What do I do when I take time for me, I will read or go out with friends shopping. Most of the time when I am taking time for me, I leave the house. If I don’t leave the house, I will feel as though I have to write something and taking time for you means you don’t do what you would normally do, you do something relaxing of some sort. Taking time for you means you can organize your thoughts and do the things that you have been meaning to do but just haven’t gotten around to it. Most of the time people are running around ragged trying to get everything in their life, done whether it be work or family related you are still busy with everything else but taking care of yourself. That is another thing about taking time for you, is good for you can take care of yourself that way, like clearing your head of everything that just keeps bombarding your mind. That is ever good you can’t focus that way, so that is why taking time for you is good. You have a different mindset when you take time for you, rather than worrying about everything else that needs doing. Sure you might be busy but things can wait and that is what everyone has to remember, that things can wait taking time for you, sometimes takes precedence over what is going on in your life at the moment.

When you take time for you, don’t you feel relaxed and like you can do anything? That is what taking time for you, is supposed to do for you, it is supposed to give you a new outlook on life in a sense. So why not take time for you. I know that taking time for you is hard, but so is everything else, that is why you have to organize some time where you say this is the time I am taking for me so that I don’t run myself ragged. Taking time for you is beneficial for your health don’t forget that everyone wants to keep going doing what they are doing but if you don’t slow down and think about yourself, sometimes it will catch up with you. When it catches up with you, it might be too late. So try to think about yourself and take some time for you. You matter too.

Taking time for you can be limitless because it depends on what you want to do or what you need to do, but most of the time it never is. This is because we are worried about getting everything done around the house, for our family and friends, for sure that type of thing. so we never take time for ourselves in a limitless sense. The only time we do that is when we take a weekend away and leave our devices at home so that we can just relax.
