Having "Me Time" Does Not Mean You're Wasting Time

  • Ensure you have some ‘me time’ regardless of how busy your schedule is and don’t feel guilty about it:
  • Without health, in particular mental health, you will have nothing. So focusing on doing something for yourself, that you enjoy, is more important and less ridiculous than you may think.
  • Take even ten minutes for yourself, if you can’t take an hour. A short break is better than nothing.
  • Do not set unrealistic goals. If you know you won’t get something done, accept it and get on with the tasks you can.
  • Remember you do not need to do everything. It won’t be the end of the world if you do not have time to send that email you’ve been meaning to do.
  • Stop feeling guilty if you have generally done something that you think has been a waste of time. Don’t focus on the problem, focus on the solution. Move on.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
