Be Selfish Today

I’ve got some advice to give you..It’s time to be selfish

Selfish with yourself and time. Now I’m not saying to be selfish in an egotistical way, I am specifically talking about giving your time and energy to things that make you feel relaxed and happy.

I know I’m not the only person to experience the feeling of being totally burnt out from constantly being busy 24/7 till the point you’re falling asleep in your food ( that has actually happened). It gets to the point where it’s gone too far and we end up damaging ourselves in the long run through exhaustion. This is why we need to schedule a time in the day, weekly or monthly to just be selfish with ourselves. Wake up peacefully to the sound of no alarm, binge watch your favourite programme or even better, sleep throughout the whole day ( if you can do this, round of applause).

Below I will tell you a day in the life of be selfish day:

I wake up to no alarm, unless its my cat clawing down my door.  I would scroll through social media until I get bored (my feed is all about high vibes) and then I will read a few books( because I read 2 books at a time, don’t ask why) & last but not least, I will binge watch a programme that I’ve been meaning to see but not got around to it. When I take time out for myself I tend to get so engrossed in the activities I’m doing, I hardly have time to look at my phone and I just invest all my time into me…selfish I know 🙂

Now do you understand why you need to be selfish with your time. Here’s a few suggestions of activities you can do for your selfish day 🙂

1.Read a book- Indulge in a new book

2.Make yourself  a meal- Pinterest has some lovely recipes to make

3.Binge watch tv all day- Netflix & chill with yourself

4.Create a spa treatment at home- Instead of going to one that will cost you an arm and a leg, why not create your own DIY spa treatment. A little mani and pedi sound perfect

5.Bake a dessert

6.Clean ( with some music on of course)- because music always gets you in the mood

7.Binge watch Youtube

8.Go for a walk- A nice walk in nature is a great moment to take time out for yourself and be at peace

9. Journal how grateful you are for this day

10. ExerciseWhether its HIIT, cardio or yoga- get your body moving so that your endorphins start to vibrate at an all time high throughout your body
