Women are widely known as being poor self nurturers. We give and give until there’s nothing left, and once we snap, all hell breaks loose. This can easily be avoided by simply dedicating a few hours a week to nurturing yourself properly.
Doesn’t really matter what you do, as long as you thoroughly enjoy it. For some it’s a simple relaxing massage, for others it’s just a few hours spent in casual shopping, or having a coffee with some friends. Whatever it is, the basic truth is that we, as people need to release some pressure once in a while.
Modern times offer us with nothing but stressful activities and we tend to loose ourselves chasing for money, better job opportunities, family, kids… All those things that society tells us we should want. Somewhere along the way though, we start loosing focus, and we spend too much of ourselves without any of it coming back in one way or another. That’s why you should have a few moments a week that will be just yours and dedicated only to your enjoyment and relaxation.
If you continue doing what you’ve been doing so far, there will just be more stress in your life, and less and less of joy and abundance. We basically need a short respite from literally everything in our lives, no matter how much we might care for the said parts of our existence. That includes even our families, our spouses, and our children. It’s not a bad thing, and you don’t have to feel dreadfully because you’re starting to realize that you would really appreciate a few moments a week that are just your own. Where there’s nothing but you and a complete surrounding of utter relaxation. You’re not a bad person for wanting a little time for yourself, and you must keep on repeating that to yourself at all times.
Taking a bit of care of ourselves is more than essential for our wellbeing. Whether we’re talking spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically, it’s all just a bunch of building blocks that make us what we are. And in turn, we will be better towards ones we love if we ourselves are happy and complete persons.
If we feel good about ourselves, we’ll have a better attitude towards life, we’ll enjoy our families more, we’ll do our daily battles at work with far more spirit, and overall be happier people. Relaxation, refreshment, and rejuvenation is all that makes us super charged with power and sheer will to tackle what the world has to offer every single morning.
The other side of the story is the fact that we work very hard every day. If you don’t take a few moments for yourself once in a while, you’ll start getting that terrible feeling that your life is all work and no rewards whatsoever. Just sacrifices and no payoffs. You’ll in turn start resenting all the people around you, which really starts being horrible when it happens with the people you love the most.
So, take you personal time, enjoy yourself, and be as happy as you can possibly be.
