Do you schedule time with yourself to do the things are important to you?
Or do you rely on an ad hoc; I’ll just get to me when I can system?
Giving all your time to your work and family might seem noble at first, however it will cause you to feel out of control and over time build up feelings of resentment for both.
Prioritizing a little of your time for yourself lets you know that you too are important and that you’re not just living a reactive life. It doesn’t have to be a lot of time, even a few minutes a day can make a big difference to how you feel.
Look at your calendar today and schedule a few minutes for yourself tomorrow and treat that time just as you would any other appointment.
