With this in mind, there are a few key things you can do to make sure you are prioritizing your “you” time
Determine how often you want to schedule recharge time – weekly, monthly, etc. Ideally it should be before you are completely worn out. Become aware of your rhythm. Perhaps you do something small weekly, and have a long weekend monthly.
Put it in your calendar! If it’s not in your calendar, it doesn’t happen. Make a plan around it. If you have a plan, it’s tougher to let it slip.
Make it non-negotiable! If something came up causing you to reschedule an important meeting, would you cancel and never get back to it? Most likely not. Use that same work ethic when it comes to your time. Make every effort to make it happen, and if there’s an emergency prioritize rescheduling it immediately.
What will you schedule for “you” time this week?
