“Me” Time: Finding Time for Yourself

Finding Time for Yourself

Finding Time for Yourself

Finding time for yourself is essential to maintaining your well-being and peace of mind. As a busy entrepreneur finding time for yourself can be difficult. This is especially true during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. However, you cannot maintain the pace of running your business and helping family, friends, and your community if you are tired and stressed out. Taking time for yourself is not selfish. It will give you an opportunity to refresh and focus on what is truly important. You will also discover that you will be more productive when you find time for yourself in your busy schedule.

Sometimes you may struggle with developing the right mindset and habits that would help in finding time yourself. Old habits and patterns are sometimes hard to break. You may wish them away and want to do better. However, without practical tips and advice along with the creation of new habits, you can remain stuck in the same old place. This article presents three tips that will help you make the transition to finding time for yourself and improving your well-being. In no time, you will find that you have created new habits and mindset. 

According to Kevin Kruse, author of 15 Secrets Successful People Know About,  Secret #1 is: “Time is your most valuable and scarcest resource.”   How are you using your most valuable asset?

1. Schedule Your “Me” Time

Now that you understand that taking time out for yourself is necessary and important, then it is time to schedule it. It is important to keep your promise to yourself when declaring your “me” time. Set aside some time daily. If you are like many people that I know, then this may seem impossible. But guess what? You can find 15 minutes every day. You must be dedicated to your “me” time. It is just as important as your appointments with your doctors.  For example, you can take 15 minutes to meditate in the morning. Or you could go outside for a few minutes in the morning to have a soothing cup of tea as you listen to nature and relax. Perhaps you may want to spend a few minutes reading from an inspirational or spiritual book. According to the book 15 Secrets Successful People Know About, highly successful people live life from their calendar. Therefore, put your “me” time on the calendar. Remember, that if it is not on the calendar, it won't get done.  According to Kruse, Secret #3 is: “Work from your calendar, not a do-do-list.”

2. Let Others Know That You Value your “Me” Time

Once you have scheduled time in your daily calendar for your “me” time, then let everyone know you have a big, “Do Not Disturb” sign on your back. You are not available during that time. Only the most serious circumstances should cause anyone to interrupt you. After all, it is only 15 minutes. Everyone will survive without you for a while.

 3. Choose How You Start Your Day

You can choose to start your day grumpy and irritable or you can choose to start your day grateful that you were given another chance to enjoy life and love. The choice is always yours. Choose to wake up by declaring out aloud a few things you are grateful for and watch how this daily habit changes your day and your life.  Use this time to set the path for a positive productive day. 


As you begin to incorporate these routines into your life, you will find yourself creating habits and a mindset that will greatly increase your well-being. Your business and your quality of life will benefit.
