Take time for yourself Day 4.
One of the things most of us neglect is spending time in our own company. Whether you are a student, a busy mother to young kids, a working professional or a senior citizen, we're mostly surrounded by people who we live with or our co-workers.
If you live alone, all by yourself chances are once you get home, you spend time with the television. Rare is the person who spends time by themselves. I for one, highly recommend it. As a writer, for me it is a occupational NEED. If I don't get my alone time I would probably be very irked.
In my home, I have a mediation room with a bamboo water fountain (which my son and I made.). I ensure that I meditate at least four -five times a week.Even if you do not meditate, take some time out for yourself. Create a 'happy corner' in your home which is just for you. Make it a point to spend some time in that 'happy corner' doing whatever gives you joy. But do this by yourself. Let your family members know that this is YOUR time. If you are a student living in the hostel, escape to the library and create some 'ME time' for yourself.
I have found that this practice helps me a lot in gaining perspective, reflecting about things, slowing down and remembering to be grateful for all that I have.
Do you do this too? Do you have a happy corner in your house? Do you get time by yourself?
