In this busy non-stop world of over-time, endless appointments, practices, parties, classes, texting, Tweeting, connecting connecting connecting, do we have time for ourselves anymore?
I'm not talking about the few moments we get to spend with our families or friends - though that's special and rare in its own right - I'm talking about that completely selfish, doing something specifically for no one but myself, who benefits no one but me time.
What do I like to do for my me time? Surprisingly, lately it has been working out - I'm more effective when I'm by myself and not worrying about looking like a complete idiot. Exercising after work has been a great stress reliever when I'm too concerned about inhaling and exhaling to worry about deadlines or projects. I also like to surf the Internet with the Real Housewives on in the background, doing my nails, reading a few pages before bed each night, even plucking my eyebrows - these are the things that take but a few moments of time but are completely self-indulgent and offer a few moments of respite in a busy week.
So what's your me time?
