With all the things on your daily to-do list, it’s easy to get lost in the spin of activity and forget one essential activity like-taking time for yourself. It isn’t selfish, but it is definitely important. While you might think you have everything under control, here are some signs that says you need some “me time”.
EVERYTHING MAKES YOU IRRITATED
The sound of the kids playing loudly in the other room, the wind messing up your hair, the grease-clogged sink you have to clean, that red sock that found its way into the laundry and colored the sheets pink, the last-minute assignment your boss handed you just as you were ready to leave for the day — when you get overly upset by everything, this is a clear sign you need some time for yourself.
YOU SPEAK BEFORE YOU THINK
When the words fall suddenly out of your mouth, it’s too late to take them back. If things are getting to be too much, you’re very likely to blow out with harsh words or communicate in an abrupt or angry manner. If you find yourself saying you’re sorry for your temper, it is a warning that you haven’t carved out enough time for you to relax and rejuvenate.
WHEN YOU WORRY ABOUT EVERYTHING
There are plenty of things in life that cause us worry, but when you begin to worry about every little thing, that’s not normal. If worry continues, it could be generalized anxiety disorder. It’s a sign that you need to put some me time on the calendar in black marker, and then be sure you take that much-needed time for yourself.
WHEN YOU FEEL TIRED ALL THE TIME
When you get plenty of sleep, yet you still feel tired, there’s more at work here than you know. You’re allowing all your to-do’s to mount and you can’t see how you can ever get them all accomplished. This results in a feeling of exhaustion. No wonder you feel down. The simple remedy may be a long, soaking bath, reading a good book, going for coffee or a meal with a friend, taking a walk in the woods, or enjoying a movie you’ve been wanting to see.
WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL HAPPY ANYMORE
If you sense that things aren’t as enjoyable as they once were, it may be time to slow down. Once you’re not trying so hard to beat the clock you should take out some time for yourself and you’ll find life begins to be a bit more enjoyable.
So, now you know if any of these signs hit you then you have to take some time out for your own self. For more such updates, keep visiting Gabruu.com
