Me time
27Jul

Often referred to as self care, time out and me time, making time for you in this busy world is critical. With conflicting priorities, ways to connect and demands on our time, it’s so easy to get lost and forget the need to recharge the batteries. And before you know it, you can become burnt out and overwhelmed.

Making time for yourself can often depend on whether you’re an introvert, ambivert or extravert.  Introverts are referred to as people who draw their energy from quiet reflection. They’re happy spending time alone or with one or two people they feel close to. Often, they need some “alone time” to recharge after being in a group social setting by looking through the television, reading a good book or just sitting down pondering life.

Extraverts tend to draw energy from being around people. They like to be out and about, attending social events and engaging with others. Ambiverts are in the middle, leaning towards introverted or extraverted behaviour depending on the situation and how they are feeling. 

Regardless, here is a list of some things you can do to make time for yourself and indulge in some me time in this busy world.

  • Go for a walk or exercise
  • Get a massage
  • Go for a swim
  • Meet up for a coffee with a friend or family member
  • Go for a surf
  • See family or friends
  • Have colonic hydrotherapy
  • Call a friend
  • Play the guitar or other musical instrument
  • Look out the window
  • Unplug from all devices
  • Read a book at home or in a cafe
  • Potter around the house with no one home
  • Swim in the ocean
  • People watch at a cafe on my own
  • Enjoy a glass of wine in peace

  • Watch TV or a movie
  • Learn something new
