Renewing and refreshing ourselves on a daily basis assists greatly in the creation of a positive and balanced day for ourselves and those that we surround ourselves with.
Taking time for self before the busyness and business of our everyday lives helps in two ways.
First, it allows for clear and concise affirmation of what is most important to us in the long term. Second, it allows for the quiet contemplation of the most important steps one can take that day to accomplish our long term vision.
When I say time for self, I mean just that. As the expression goes “Me, Myself and I.” Do whatever it takes to free yourself from reading, writing, listening to TV, CDs or any form of media. You will be absolutely amazed how empowering simply being still with yourself for ten to fifteen minutes at the start of each day will be.
It is entirely up to each one of us to create the time each day in our busy lives to do this. If that means awaking twenty minutes earlier than usual, then that is what it means. Do whatever it takes to create this special time just for yourself. Continually nourishing ourselves in this manner is like filling our car up with gas and keeping up with ongoing maintenance. So, fill up your tank each morning and get set for the day.
At the end of the day, you will find that it is a wise investment in yourself. As in business, invest in yourself first and you will be amazed how your life will change.
So, fill your tank up with gas and invest in yourself each day and you will be amazed how much you will flourish in all areas of your life. Be good to yourself. You deserve it!
Then all you need do is do it again tomorrow.
