As you probably know, it’s very important to take care of yourself. I can hear you say that it’s easier said than done and that as women, we often tend to put our wellbeing aside for the sake of our friends and family.

As a mom of three, I agree with you completely. We usually tend to take care of everyone else except ourselves. We have this idea that if we take some time to relax, we will be selfish and a bad mom or friend.

Taking care of ourselves isn’t selfish

But the truth is that to be able to care for others,  you have to take some time off to unwind and rest because if you don’t, you’ll get sick or too tired to do anything. That’s why taking some “me” time is as important as taking care of others.

Just like I said, taking time for ourselves isn’t selfish, it’s smart! There are a lot of benefits whether it is physical or psychological. We have to change our way of seeing this and stop feeling guilty about taking care of ourselves.

Why “me” time matters

The online website Happify created an infographic that shows exactly how “me” time is essential to be happy. It’s full of facts supporting this theory. Even psychologists say that alone time can help reboot the brain, improve our concentration and more.

Like did you know that the University of Michigan has found that the lack of “me” time is a bigger cause of unhappy marriage than an unsatisfying sex life? Or that dads get 28 hours of leisure time weekly and that moms get only 25 in comparison?

Aside from those facts, the infographic shows a lot of info about the importance of taking time for yourself. This infographic has everything needed to convince you that taking “me” time will lead to a happier and healthier life. Here are the main subjects:

  • Why we need time for ourselves
  • How to get more “me” time
  • Use your “me” time wisely
