Top 6 Moments for Even the Busiest People to Find “Me Time”

In 2019, life is pretty hectic, but whether you’re an introvert who is shy and needs to spend some time recharging or an extrovert who gets their energy from other people, a little “me time” is important for all of us. But how can we find that time when we’re all busy with work and social lives? Well, there is a way.

When you think about it, everyone has the same amount of hours in the day, even the world’s busiest and most successful people. The Fast Company says that even successful CEOs can find 45 minutes to exercise, 3 hours for their family, and 2 hours on their favorite hobbies, all while managing to still sleep nearly 7 hours a night. If they can do it, so can you.

Learn how you can begin making time for intimacy with these six moments in your day:

Moment 1: Wake up half an hour earlier

Cosmopolitan Magazine says that snoozing your alarm and spending that extra half an hour in bed could actually be damaging to your health and mental outlook. Some people like to “Swallow the Frog” first thing in the morning, and begin the day making a to-do list of the hardest tasks awaiting them.

Moment 2: During your commute

With your extra half an hour, is it now possible that you could walk or cycle to work? This would mean you don’t have to share your “Me Time” moment with other grouchy commuters on the train or other public transport. You could do this on your way in or back from work it’s up to you, but we would always recommend walking or cycling if you can.

Moment 3: On your lunch break

While team lunches and face-to-face meetings are an important part of work, nobody would blame you for taking a short walk and getting some “Me Time” on your lunch break. You could even do this after lunch in the afternoon and stretch your legs when others are at their desks and you know you won’t be disturbed.

Moment 4: Right when you get home

Some people like to go for a swim, a jog or to the gym when they return from work. If that’s not your thing that’s ok, you can go and read a book or watch television instead, but if you’ve spent all day talking to other people at work, why not take a “Me Time” moment now?

Moment 5: While you cook dinner

Treat your partner (if you have one) to some “Me Time” of their own and offer to cook evening dinner on the condition that they do the washing up. This’ll mean that while you both get to eat together, you’ll both get a moment to yourselves, too.

Moment 6: Go to bed half an hour later

PositivePsychology.com lists multiple benefits for making time for intimacy each evening before bed writing a “gratitude journal” about things you’re grateful for. This could be your entire “Me Time” moment, or part of an evening ritual that might include turning off your electronics, bathing, and meditating.

We hope you enjoy these tips on how even busy people can create some useful time and quiet moments every day.
