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.

The Good in Light and Dark

The Good in Light and Dark

In the biblical Creation story, we are told that God created the light and the dark, and it was good. Yet how does this get so overlooked, when it is right at the very beginning of this sacred book? Light and dark are equally good and important enough to have been created in the first…

What Are Your Spiritual Gifts?

What Are Your Spiritual Gifts?

A man was pulled over by a police officer for a broken headlight. The cop looks in the car and sees a collection of knives on the backseat. “Sir,” he says. “Why do you have all those knives?” “They’re for my juggling act,” the man replies. “Prove it,” says the cop. The man gets out…
