Quality time on your own

“24 hours a day is not enough.” —— My colleague always told me this. In this fast-paced society that we live in, we are constantly on the move to complete as many things as possible in the shortest time. We have multiple deadlines to complete our work, to pay bills, and to achieve our goals. Apart from work, which already takes up 8 to 10 hours a day, we also need to take care of our family and do household chores. Occasionally, we also take the time to catch up with friends. Our thoughts are always being occupied by many things, like what we need to do, where we need to go and who we need to meet. Accounting for all of these, there really is not enough time for us, especially for those working moms.

Have you ever thought of setting aside some personal time for your self? How often do you have the luxury to sit down quietly, space out and just breathe, clearing all thoughts in your mind. How many people actually do this regularly?

No matter how busy we are, we should always try to set aside a few moments of our day for ourselves, put aside all thoughts in our minds and just hear yourself breathe. Be it only for 5 minutes.
