Your Time

The importance of having  time for you is paramount.  Do you struggle to find time for you and when you do find some, do you feel guilty РI know I do!

I recently came across an article that reenforced the benefits of having time for you and why we shouldn’t feel guilty about it.

“Taking care of yourself is something that you should never feel guilty about. It not only models healthy behavior for the ones you love, it also keeps you happy, healthy, and strong so that you can continue doing what fulfills you.

Moreover, guilt is counterproductive to reaping the full benefits of solitude. If you spend all or even some of your “found” time feeling guilty that you found it, then doesn’t that defeat the purpose?

If you need even more justification to lose the guilt, consider these points:

♦ Spending time with yourself is time well spent because it makes you a happier person to be around.

♦ Spending time with yourself benefits everyone because by having a happier and healthier mindset, you’re in a better frame of mind to take care of the people who are important to you.

♦ Spending time with yourself is preventative medicine to combat burnout. What good will you be to anyone if you eventually burnout? (And you will if you don’t take care of yourself.)”

No matter how you like to spend your time, find some for you by taking advantage of poponin’s unaccompanied fun creative sessions either after school, (which includes school pickup) or in the holidays.
