ME time = play time!

ME time = play time!

When we were kids we had so much structured “taking care of me time”. We had time at recess and physical education and time to draw and question and play with friends. As adults, we need to remember this reality and attempt to put it into perspective. Life is not interesting and motivating if we only work and have no play or ME time.

If you take the words:

  • AccomplishMEnt
  • AchieveMEnt
  • TiME
  • MEmory
  • EmpowerMEnt

…they all share the word ME

ME time doesn’t have to be for long periods of time. In stress management we use to identify with all kinds of ideas that could help by keeping it simple:

  • A walk around the building at the office or hospital
  • Taking different roads to our work
  • Humorous gadgets for the workplace that we could use to tease coworkers or patients
  • Pets that give us love and energy
  • A movie day
  • Time near or at the water
  • Exercise
  • Blowing bubbles
  • Writing a note to someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile
  • Mend your heart
  • Forgive yourself
  • Take a dance class
  • Do Taebo
  • Watch a comedy
  • Look for a butterfly
  • Get out in Nature

Do something different every week even if it’s just buying something new at the grocery store. Buy yourself a small gift or get something you’ve always wanted…lay it away if necessary. However, do not go out of your means……that adds stress.

Whole Self

Whole Self

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness,…

You Are A Modern-Day Mystic

You Are A Modern-Day Mystic

How can words convey the depth and sweetness of unconditional love, the soul’s joy in coming home to God, the stunning revelation that despite all your errors, you are forgiven? How to describe the realization that your every thought and deed is known, and the bliss of being shown that your soul is pure, not…

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…
