Overdue for ME time? Sometimes, life gets so busy that you lose track of time. You also lose track of how long it’s been since the last you had some quality time alone. Socializing with family and friends is very important but there are times you just need to get away from everyone and everything for a while in order to get a new perspective on things.
Here are three big signs you are overdue for some “me” time:
1. You’re feeling depressed, lonely or emotional. When you begin to feel depressed, upset and like no one seems to appreciate you, it’s time for a break. If you seem extra emotional, tend to cry or get upset super easy or feel lonely even when you’re with other people, spending a few hours alone might make a huge difference in how you feel.
2. Little things make you irritable and stress you out. Everyone gets irritable and stressed sometimes but if you’re snapping at friends and family for no particular reason, there’s a problem. When little things you normally wouldn’t even think twice about make you mad, that’s a big clue that you are way overdue for spending some time alone. Me time is important.
3. You feel exhausted even when you get plenty of sleep. If you’re working all the time your body gets exhausted, you lose track of time and life becomes a dull, stressful place. If you feel tired all the time and have a hard time keeping up with things, it could be that you need some time alone to regroup.
Spending time alone doing things you enjoy is good for you physically, mentally and emotionally. It helps relieve stress and gives your mind and body a chance to relax and recharge. Everyone needs a little alone time every now and then. When was the last time you spent some time by yourself? I challenge you to book some “me time” now!
