Recharge For Your Mental Health

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, to be the best person that you can be, you need to take time for you to recharge, refresh, re-energize. I know I know I know. Trust me, I do know that sometimes it just seems impossible to get 5 uninterrupted minutes. But I assure you, take those minutes. Because the reality is, if you are running on empty, you can't be the person that you need to be for yourself and for those that depend on you. Otherwise, you are going to wind up looking like this picture in this post :)

For me, it's often a soak in Epsom salt. Not only does it help my muscles, but it helps me mentally with getting some magnesium sulfate
(#TuesdayTidbit - Using Magnesium Sulfate), PLUS having that time to myself.
Granted, it's sometimes interrupted by humans or animals. But I still try to get a few minutes to myself.

I've found that (when possible) carving out some time for me in the morning helps give me the mental boost that I need to get through the day. If it's possible, before Hubby leaves for work, I will try to get in a quick workout to have some 'me time' to recharge. I've found that my day goes smoother. I think Hubby is realizing this also.

And I'm also find that taking a few minutes here and there helps. Carpool for instance.... I often use that time to read, to do some deep breathing, sometimes catch up on social media if I find it relaxing instead of stressful... whatever that I can do during those 15 mins or so that I'm in line so that I can recharge my batteries. I don't know about you, but sometimes after school requires all that I have (and then some) to give to Lil Man. I need that time. He needs me to take that time. And because of that I no longer feel guilt for speaking up to express that I need some time for me.

And I encourage you to take some time for you ... even if it's just 5 minutes ... take a moment to center yourself, take a deep breath, pray, meditate.. do what you do.. for you..... those around you will be grateful that you did.
