This week is an especially crazy-busy one for me. And when that happens, I'm so tempted to cut corners on the things that are good for me: my exercise time, my quiet time, taking time to prepare healthy meals.
What I've learned through the years, however, is that when my weeks are busiest, those are the times that it's even more important to do the self-care routines that are so important to my well-being. What it means is that planning is even more important. I need to put on my calendar such things as exercise, meditation time and whatever else is important to my health. If it's important to me and I value it, I'll find time for it.
Have you found a way to fit in all those self-care routines that are important to you—even on days and weeks when you're extra busy? If you have tips to share, please tell us about them in the Comment box below. We'd love to hear them.
Remember—self-care isn't selfish. It's part of staying healthy.
