This Sparked Me!

I have come to call my working out my "selfish" time. It is the time I set aside for just me, to focus on me, to better me. While it benefits my whole family, I truly am doing this for me. This outlook helps me focus and remember what is important.

It helps me to clear my head, and work around problems and obstacles and be free from cell phones, computers, instant messaging, etc. It is a place where I can clear my mind, heart, and soul and when I come back home I feel so refreshed and proud that I took the time for me!

    Don't think of it as 'selfish'...think of it as 'self-care'. You deserve as much respect & care & concern as those you care for & about! Self time is awesome!

    I agree we must set time aside for ourselves. It took me awhile to learn how truly important this is, but once I started setting aside my workouts as 'me' time I have felt so much better both in mind and body.

    Agreed. I would call it "me time". I think "selfish" has too many negative connotations. But whatever works for you!
