So many people do so much for others, at work and at home, that they never have a moment to themselves. If this sounds like you then you then get out your planner. Schedule the following activities:
Exercise 4-5 times a week.
Go for a massage once or twice a month.
Select a night for being with someone who warms your heart.
Take in a movie once a month or find a great book to read and set aside time
Practice your art—whatever that is. It refreshes your spirit.
Get the idea? Schedule your stress relief and your fun in advance. Then if someone asks you to do something you don't have time to do then you can truthfully say "I'm sorry, I'm already full booked that day!"
