I made a promise to myself that I would write a monthly blog once I had my new website up and running; two months in and I have already broken that promise. It isn’t that I do not have lots of ideas and things I want to write about, it just comes down to time. I have not made the time to write the blog, I have not made the time to do something for me, I have not made the time to spend more time with my family etc etc. Does all this sound familiar?
A regular conversation I have with clients is the importance of “me time”. My clients have made an appointment with me and I am aware of how special that hour or so is for them. For many people it is the only hour dedicated just for them in a life as busy, if not busier than mine and my aim is to try to make it as relaxing, special and important for them as possible. However, like everyone, I do not always practise what I preach and do not always put time aside for me. But, for a change, last month I did have a reflexology treatment. The treatment was wonderful and I have to say how special it was to be on the receiving end for a change. I love my job, and always enjoy giving treatments, but by experiencing a treatment for myself for the first time in a very long time, I really appreciated it and went back to work with a renewed zest and enthusiasm.
And, my promise to myself…………………… keep up to date with family time, work and blogs, but make sure there is some “me time” in the diary as well. So watch this space to see if I manage to keep this promise!
