The Most Important Appointment You’ll Ever Make
The hustle and bustle of everyday life can get exhausting and drain all the energy right out of us! Sometimes it can be downright debilitating! We have so many responsibilities pulling us in every direction. From our family life, social life, work, home repairs, doctor’s appointments, vet appointments, school and sporting activities, (do you catch my drift yet?) we feel like we just don’t have enough time to do it all!
There may be one appointment that you are forgetting to add to your schedule. It’s the most important of them all! Make an appointment with YOURSELF! This may sound a bit silly, but it is the most important appointment you’ll ever make! Remember, you are just as important as everyone else in your life. Don’t feel guilty about taking the time you need to bring yourself more peace.
Studies have shown that people who take the time to do something they enjoy, (exercising, meditation, reading, hobbies, ect) experience less stress, worry, anxiety and fatigue. Why do you think this is?
When you are able to rest your mind from all these stresses in your daily life, you are able to recharge your mind, body and spirit. Once you recharge yourself, just like batteries, you’ll be able to have new clarity for your tasks and goals and you’ll be able to refocus your energy where it is needed the most.
Clarity and calmness are both very important to keep stress down. A lot of times, stress comes when we feel overwhelmed and then we may get confused about things in our lives. By making an appointment everyday with yourself, you can gain this calmness and clarity.
Make a goal today to add YOU to your schedule! Don’t cancel your appointment! Even if it can only be ten minutes, that’s ten minutes you didn’t spend for yourself before. You will start looking forward to your most important appointment of the day!
