We all have ups and downs in life.Success, failures, happiness, sadness, it’s all part of the reality we live in. But for most of us, we tend to feel neglected and insignificant especially once we fail to achieve our objective or ambition.
Everyday we’ve been grinding and biting our lips just to see some results. We’ve had countless sleepless nights and exchanged leisure for pressure. But still, you feel like you’re not as productive as you’re supposed to be.
But let me ask you, did you miss something as important as working? Is there something that’s been missing from your schedule? I think you’ve just realized it. It’s that simple phrase called -- ‘Me’ time. Everyone is so used to working, that they tend to forget the value of pausing.
They live in the notion that the harder you work the more successful you become. But this might make or break you as a person. The pressure you’ve been building inside is transferred into your output. If you can’t handle that swelling of emotion inside, you’ll end up bursting into oblivion. This will result in poor performance and you’ll end up tired of everything; tired of working, tired of making time for your family, tired of appreciatinglife.
Before you get to the point of burning yourself out: Here are some of the benefits that will make you realize how a simple ‘Me’ timecould make a difference:
1. By relaxing a bit, you could easily take on challenges more actively.
As a human being, we get tired. Even machines needed rest every now and then. Always put in mind that we need to recharge in order for us to move forward. Take that little break as a means to improve yourself as you take on the challenges in your life. Always remember that you can’t rush creativity without sacrificing productivity.
2. Having some quiet time just for yourself refreshes your mind.
Every once in a while, a change in point-of-view is all that it takes in solving a problem. Taking a simple pause and a quiet break somehow refreshes your mind and lets you take on another view or angle of the situation.
3. ‘Me’ time is like a breath of fresh air in a stressful environment.
Taking your personal time off is as good as detoxifying yourself from a polluted environment. At this point in time, you can relinquish all negative energy and bad vibes you’re feeling inside. This not only gives you a breather but also improves your attitude upon accepting challenges.
4. Prioritizing yourself improves your self-worth.
Improving your outlook in life also improves your relationship and interaction with everyone around you. Learning the value of ‘Me’ timeincreases your overall productivity as well as your interpersonal relationships.
These are just a few of the numerous advantages of valuing your ‘Me’ time. I hope that you learn to improve your life other than grinding and working as a simple rest could make the difference of your mileage.
