Each day I seem to be running out of time. After the sun has gone down, I prepare dinner then eat it with my family. As we chat after the meal, I feel a rush of fatigie wash over me. The day is done, my energy levels are low – and I have not finished all that I set out to do. Deadlines loom, lessons need to be prepared, the family needs to be taken care of – and I still need to find time for me!
Time has come to be precious thing in our daily lives. Life is filled with too much work and not enough play. The years pass, the children grow up. Time does not wait for us to realise that we need to look after ourselves and spend minutes maintaining our mental and physical health.
Yes, I know I should be excercising; I know I should have “me” time. But where do I find it in a day that is filled to the brim with responsibilities?
I breathe. I surrender to the sleep that embraces me. I wake up. And try again the next day to find the time for me.
Do you feel that you run our of time?
