My "me" time is everyday after the daycare kids leave....I sit on my husband's lounge chair for ten to twenty minutes with my feet up and a cup of coffee (that he brings to me).......sometimes close my eyes and even dose for a few minutes.
I too find it challenging to find time sometimes and I have no family or life for that matter, My work schedule is as fallows 2 weeks of 60+ hours and one week with 8-12 hours. It sucks on my 60 hour weeks I am lucky to make it to the gym but 1 day on my non work week I work out 2 hours a day almost. My gym time is my mode of relaxation so if I do not make it there I tend to get more and more crabby as the week goes on, but lately I have been forcing myself to go and unwind in the pool even if it is just walking 3 laps and then sitting in the hot tub for 20 minutes it is still better then nothing.
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.
