SCHEDULE YOUR DOWN TIME
At the beginning of this series of tips I mentioned that today we have many demands on our time – and I for one CANNOT live without my diary (I even use an old school paper diary, I am a visual learner and I like to see my whole week in front of my eyes…)
So when it comes to creating some balance in your life between work and play, and juggling the demands you have in your life (which are certain to be different from the demands I have in mine), it can be very important to schedule time just for you.
This might be a full day away from things, perhaps a trip to the hairdresser or a favourite lookout, or even just grabbing a coffee from your favourite café.
Pop it in your diary like an appointment, and keep it – you wouldn’t keep a client waiting, so don’t keep yourself waiting either!
It really doesn’t take much to rejuvenate yourself, and when times are busy a little will go a long way – remember the saying to “stop and smell the roses” – perhaps that’s all you need to do?
