Today’s Tip – Looking Inward!; Personal Needs –
Time for play and fun right… well, no not really. You should have been doing things all week to help you with play and fun. Relaxation and fun are part of a good life and should be embraced. This final post for the week is about Personal needs.
This is things you do only for you, no one else. Others may be involved in it but you do it for yourself. Being on a softball team or a bowling league qualifies, if you in fact like doing those things. Playing in a band for fun and not work. Taking the time to sit down with a book outside and soak up some sun. This is about being able to do the things you want to and not being overwhelmed by other peoples sense of priority’s. It’s not always easy. One of the things you will have to learn is to be more assertive and not let other people make you feel guilty for taking time for you. More important is not allowing yourself to feel guilty for taking time for yourself. This will help you manage stress and gain control of your choices. Learn to say no when outside influences start to intrude onto your time with your family or friends. Yes working is important but working to live isn’t living.
Take time to take care of yourself, in all area’s of your life. If you take nothing else away his week remember this “Working isn’t living!”
