It’s time to pamper yourself!

Ever hear the saying, “Time flies when you’re having fun”?  Well, that’s true, but it also flies by whether you take a minute to pamper yourself or not.  Life is hard.  Life is chaotic and fast-paced and in the blink of an eye, days, weeks or years can go by with you doing something beneficial for yourself.  It’s “me time”.  My husband hates that phrase…haha…He thinks it sounds too frivolous and self-serving and maybe it is, but everyone needs a little time to take care of themselves.  Rejuvenate, breathe and relax.

There are 52 weeks in a year and if you would allow time to do one thing for yourself once a week, it wouldn’t take much time but it would teach you to put yourself as a priority in your life.  Once a week.  That’s all!  Take the challenge and you may realize how important you are as a person and that you deserve to spend time on yourself.  The following is a list of  just for “me” tasks…Check them out!

1.  Drink a cup of hot tea.  Buy yourself a beautiful teacup to use.

2.  Take a long, luxurious bubble bath.

3.  Wrap yourself up in a big, cozy, soft blanket.

4.  Give yourself a spa treatment facial at home.
