Taking time for yourself is not as selfish as it sounds. You have needs too, and odds are you are the last thing on your to-do list. Caring for friends and family, work responsibilities, school, and other extracurriculars pull at you from every which way. It’s exhausting being as truly amazing as you are. However, your body and soul need to relax and recharge if you are going to take on the world. Here are a few ways to find balance between all your demands, and have joy in every day.
Just Say No
When you find your social calendar is becoming overwhelmingly full, or you just run out of steam for the day, don’t be afraid to say no. Kindly decline volunteer requests, carpool pleas, and extra hours at work. You know when you are going to reach your limit. In return for a little restraint, you’ll be able to hit the ground running when the time comes.
