It has been a crazy week for me, preparing for school and dealing with all the late christmas shopping and trying to please my little girl. First off, hope you all enjoyed your holiday! As much as I love this cold season, let’s be honest it’s kind of depressing. Well you know what? not kind of, it is stressful.
My thoughts and emotions have been over the place this past week with trying to type up as much blogs as i can, writing this book, trying to land my first client with http://www.allthingsbysb.com, thinking about my goals for 2019 and what the new year holds for, figuring out new areas of growth for “Theonlyseqouiab” Blogs, and also having to deal with the slacking of not being consistent with building a business.
Personally, I am someone who likes to plan, brainstorm, and do a lot of research. I am very proactive, I even talk out my plans in my head, yeah so what lol! And so when I feel like I don’t have things going right, or feel uncertain about things like the new year.
I’ve had to repeatedly tell myself that ‘girl, it’s ok, just relax and stay positive, your time is coming. I’ve had to constantly tell myself you can’t have EVERYTHING your WAY! No one does, honestly. You have to keep faith each day. I found it hard with trying to cope with everything i got going on in my life. I always felt it would be helpful to share my thoughts on how to make time out for yourself during the holidays though because i feel it gives a big relief expressing your feelings and someone can be going through the same thing.
Yes, it’s amazing seeing family and friends, going out, having drunks nights, clubs, but sometimes all this can be overwhelming and completely stressing. You don’t want to look back at this time and wish you made out more time for yourself and backtrack when you will need time to rest, time to reflect, time to sit in think out on what this past year has been like for you.
So, with that being said, here are some ways to make out time for yourself this season!
1. PLAN OUT YOUR TIME
The first thing I would suggest is planning out your week ahead of time. Write down everything you need to take care of in your planner and the day it needs to be done by. First thing first, don’t forget about giving yourself time. You could treat yourself or just spend quality time doing what you love. It could be a couple of days or half a day. But, make sure you are doing this regularly though, you’ll be overly thrilled by the results.
#2: LEARN TO STOP ALWAYS SAYING YES
For me honestly it’s hard to say no, and i mean its hard! But sometimes, you’ve got be selfish with your time and patience. It come to a time when you need to put yourself first. There’s only so much you can give to others . If you are not feeling something, you don’t have to do it! Don’t force yourself to do things you don’t have no time for. Can’t make it for a birthday party? not your fault. Don’t have the funds to go out to an event with your friends? Not your fault! Use this time to evaluate and rethink about everything that you been dealing with and be ready to throw it all in the past!
#3: LIFE CLEANSE!
YES! I said it, life cleanse. What i mean by this you need to cut away everything that distracts you, stressing you out, pressure, and whatever else that is giving you a big headache right now. Ok for an example, Social media. Social media can be very good for your sources and yes that is where the money is at, but sometimes you need a break! We don’t realize how much we are addicted to social media and we need to take time to just put down our phones and let it just be in it’s on world sometimes. Relationships: Boy! can i tell you, that sometimes a relationship can be a distraction when it’s not on good terms. Well if you need to take time out to take a small break like a 2 day vacation just to focus on you do it! that don’t mean you have to break up but sometimes being to yourself for a while is needed. Your phone it self also can be tiresome, sometimes we tend to text a lot, and sit and stare on our phone even when it’s dry. It’s okay to sit your phone down for a couple hours just to read or take a quick 2 hour nap, remember your health is more important. So, treat your health like you should. I know we like to constantly update the world with our news but sometimes, we have to ask ourselves if it is necessary; we have to check our motives and priorities.
