Each morning, when I first wake up, I need “me” time.
Time for me:
· before the kids wake up, begin to squabble, and need to be cared for.
· before my significant other starts telling me their agenda for the day.
· before my own brain kicks into gear worrying about everything I have to do.I sit up straight, stretch, and breathe.
I remember how grateful I am for what I have.
I read some spiritual literature.I spend a few minutes thinking about what I’d like to accomplish today or maybe only in the next few minutes—but mostly, how important it is to pace myself, so I don’t get bent out of shape.I remind myself to take my time. I’m no good to anyone if I’m rushing and not taking care of “me” first.
See all those “I’s”? That’s because it is “me” time.
