Can you remember the last time you intentionally took a few hours off, or the full day off, to stay in bed or be a couch potato? Did you feel guilty, inadequate, ashamed, etc for taking this time for yourself? Or are you finding you need more "down" time due to feelings of stress/anxiety BUT tell yourself to hide those feelings and move on?
Do you spend the majority of your waking hours looking after others? We look after our children, partners, parents, friends, colleagues, patients and/or clients. The idea of "me" time falls to the bottom of the priority list...because there is just NO time!
