Again, it all started with a conversation between two friends about feeling like there is never time for me. That's when I realized, I could find 5 minutes for me everyday in my crazee/busy life! Two years ago, I decided to find 5 minutes for me each day during the whole month of May. To smell the roses, to create, to read, to sew, to relax.
On the first day of May, I decided to start my day off by shutting off my alarm.
I can do that, because I am my own boss. I won't yell at myself, if I am late for work. I woke up at 7:30. The windows were wide open. The birds were singing and the sun was streaming into my bedroom. What a good way to start May!
At lunchtime, I decided that every day, I will add an extra glass of water. I drink alot of water anyway, but I want to start doing more things that are good for me. Maybe only a half a cup of coffee at lunch, would be a good idea too.
I love adding fruit slices to my water.
While I ate lunch, I took some extra time to play a game of words with a friend, who was on her lunch break too.
Note that one of us used the word quilt!
That was three really good things today --- for me.
Sleeping later was a half hour, but that was OK,
Drinking more water was a very healthy choice,
Relaxing a lunch was very enjoyable.
So why should you join in the May for Me Celebration?
to get more sleep?
to drink more water?
or to relax during your lunch hour?
You will be a happier person, if you take a few minutes for you! Celebrate you! It's May for Me!
