Do you have trouble finding time for you? Today take a minimum of 15 minutes to do something nice for yourself

With the holidays and getting ready with baked goods for the Dec. 6 bazaar sometimes I feel a little stressed, but will find something to do to slow me down and give me some me time.

Mauri..you are winding down on your busy time and I am heading into mine. Year end is looming, budgets need to be spent, it's crazy at work...I will take the time each day to slowly decompress when I get home. My day starts when I get up at 4:30 am and normally ends(unless I have to work overtime) at 2:30 pm. When I get home, I will spend some time just being. Thank you for the reminder.

Hugs,
Wanda

This is the time of year when I am trying to catch up with things that have fallen behind because of my crazy work schedule in August through the beginning of November. I make those things a higher priority. Today I will try to spend 15 minutes of quiet time - no activity or noise, just quiet breaths.

Take time today to relax:

Do something you've wanted to try but haven't.
Practice deep breathing.
Start that book.
Take that nap.

For those of us in the US, this Independence Day weekend can be crazy...especially if you live on the East Coast with TS / Hurricane Arthur winding its way up the coast. Get ready by TAKING TIME to relax!

Shirl, I make cards too. I think the homemade ones are so extra special. Great that you are making one for the lady that is a vet. Good Job!

I sometimes lead classes for them to make their own cards. Of course I do all the precutting and stamping, but they enjoy arranging the parts to their liking, and they have a choice as to the verse inside.

If this was your last day, how would you spend it?

I will take time today to make a birthday card for one of our residents, Agnes, she'll be turning 95 on Monday and is a WWII veteran. Making cards is a way of relaxing for me and maybe I'll even get some Christmas cards made.

Thanks Mauri.

I will be taking the time today and everyday for the next while to touch base with my SIL and hopefully be able to offer her support and encouragement. I can easily do this while I sit with my leg elevated and with ice on it.

Take time today to catch your breath from all the holiday & end of year activities in which you may be entwined. Maybe it's just sitting quietly, reading a book, writing a note, playing a game, watching TV or a movie, or meditating. Just be sure to give your body a rest in the midst of the craziness of the season.

I have a closet that scares me every time I open the door. I've been procrastinating organizing it for months. This weekend I will dedicate at least 1 hour to getting the bloody thing under control.

Mauri - I will keep you in my thoughts and get well soon.

Wanda - I hope you have a good time with Shyra. I know that I really look forward to the days I get to spend with my mum.

Thank you for the challenge Mauri. I'm keeping you in my prayers for a quick recovery. Hugs.

I'm taking time this weekend for some Mother-daughter time with Shyra. It's been awhile since just the two of us have spent time together. I'm sure it will involve some "wedding" talk, but also lots of just connecting time.

Hugs,
Wanda

Is there something you've been wanting to do and just haven't had or made the time?

Revisit your SP goals? Contact someone? Treat yourself? Redo your budget? Reorganize that desk? Make today the day you TAKE TIME to do it.

For me, it is taking care of me so that this cold/bronchitis will heal. That means slowing down at work today, saving errands for Sunday or Monday, so that I can come home after the Sensuality Project Unveiling this evening...and just apply peppermint oil, then to bed.

Today I am going to call some family members I haven't talked to for sometime. We are all in our 70's and 80's so time is fleeting.

Since Kiji got here first today, let's take time today to be kind to ourselves...do something you've wanted to do for you today - read a book, relax, watch a movie, meditate, shop, manicure...whatever it may be that will help you live in positive energy.

For me, it will be a quiet evening at home - no technology other than the DVD player & a movie!

Mauri I like that playing with the animals at the zoo when your work is done, what a neat way to spend Valentine's Day. I have had fun handing out the Valentine Owls to friends and family, I got some pretty big smiles, and that made me feel so good, will be handing more goodies out this evening to family, I love sharing.

TAKE TIME today to do something for yourself.

Call someone you love but haven't talked to in awhile.
Relax a bit when you get home from work, errands or appointments - read a book, meditate, deep breathing - whatever it takes to help restore your spirit.
Play a game with your family.
Watch a TV show you like but haven't seen because of frenzy in your life.

I'm working at an employee health fair at our local zoo until 2 PM...then I'm playing with the animals at the zoo when done!

Enjoy the time you take...

Take time today to do something you love or need, even if only 10 minutes...relax, read a book, pray, meditate, call someone with whom you'd love to talk but life responsibilities get in the way, enjoy a special - healthy - treat...

When I get off the Hope Bus, I will have about an hour before I meet John for dinner...primarily for him to use my laptop/WiFi...in that hour, I am going to talk a walk at Colt State Park in Bristol, RI. That park is the reason I moved to this side of our state and I never seem to have time to walk along the ocean. Today is the day!

Your challenge: to take the time today to really appreciate each moment. We get so caught up in living in the past or future that we sometimes forget that we really need to be living in the moment. Watch a small child...they know how to live in the moment. Have a great and wonderful day because you choose to.

It's a rainy day and I am going to relax and read my book "The Crowning Glory of Calla Lilly Ponder" by Rebeca Wells.

Thank you Mauri for the great reminder. I like to go and stand in front of the mirror and tell myself directly.

I'm taking time to read the rest of my book before it's due back at the library! Sometimes you just have to take time for yourself.

Take time on Thursday to review your goals, revise your journey, remember someone you love, take care of yourself...something that you don't make the time to do.


Will be shopping for a gift for the baby shower for Sunday, with two of my girls.

Hi. Yup. I'm early for a change. Since I have to be up at 3:00 AM & on the road at 4:15 AM, I thought I'd post today.

Love those kitties, a great way to spend some time.

I might just take a long, hot, soak in the tub this evening and maybe even do my finger nails, I hardly ever take time to do that. Thanks Mauri.

Again I am late...so will save my idea for next week...

I thought we can still manage to take time with a half day ahead of us.

Take time today to be kind to yourself...spend quiet time alone or with a loved one. Give yourself a manicure. Read a book. You get the idea.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My PLAN is to relax when I get home after 7 pm. No checking work emails when I get home....just quiet time with my kitties.

Since it was another late work night, I treated myself to healthy take-out! So nice not to have to do dishes at 10 PM!

I treated myself with a nice book to read. Shut off the TV and curled up on the couch with a great book.

Dec. 1, Take time today to treat yourself...

Take a nap
Start a book you've been wanting to read
Treat yourself to something you've wanted
Spend time with someone you miss by visiting or calling
Or do 2 of these
treat yourself!

How will you treat yourself today? After baking all afternoon, this evening watched a Christmas movie and now watching the CMA Country Christmas special.


Hugs,
Shirl

How did I treat myself today?

1. I kept a positive attitude, thus had a positive day with those I was in contact with.
2. I ate healthy.
3. Treated myself to one candy from the treat bowl at work as I was leaving work. (thus avoided the temptation to go back for another)
4. Read a book in the evening.
5. Gave my eyes a rest from the computer by limiting my time on the computer when I got home from work. ( I work on a computer all day at work)

Yep, it was a good day.

\Hugs,
Wanda

Although I didn't get to this one until this morning (Friday), I can say that I did the challenge without even realizing it! I sat down and watched the finale of "So You Think You Can Dance" last evening all by myself. I don't often sit down and just watch TV. Usually I'm up and down and still doing things, listening to the TV rather than actually watching it.

Spent some time in meditation also.

Hugs,
Wanda

Hey... I just found the challenge for the day AND I even completed it. LOL Woo hoo... lol

Today I enjoy some alone time (about 4 hours :)) while my hubby went to town. Then I went shopping and wandered through the dollar store just enjoying being out of the house. Even found a new napkin holder for the table. It's got sea shells on it... Perfect hehehe... (splashing) It was a good step for me today. Thanks for the challenge Shirl.
