This is the point that I start talking about the Sell Your Soul aspect that Cell Your Sole is also about. Yes the pun really is intended. The point here is that you must always understand who you are and what makes you and your life work. This site is all about learning, particularly about yourself.
Taking time for yourself and the time to learn about what you want and what makes you happy is important. The pressures of life distract us all the time but personal well being comes from knowing your own needs and feeding them. Which means not selling your soul. Not selling your opportunity for fun and happiness.
It’s much better to learn how to meet your needs without giving the chance for fun. Even better to learn how to make fun achieve your goals as well. That’s the point of food and exercise. Not as chores but as opportunities to play.
The same goes for me time. It’s not selfish. Think about it. The better you take care of yourself the better you can take care of others.
Check out Take Care of Yourself Before You Take Care of Business and let me know what you think. This applies to all of us whether we’re high flying CEOs or parents or whatever. You’ll do a better job if you take better care of yourself.
