Extreme Self-Care: In a Crunch

This is the ninth in a ten part series called, Extreme Self-Care: It’s Not Selfish!

It’s great to have an afternoon or an evening to yourself. It’s even better if you can have a whole day or a weekend, but let’s be honest. That’s not always realistic. In our busy lives, sometime, all you have is 30 minutes, or 15 minutes … maybe even 10 minutes. So here is a list of things you can do when you are short on time.
  1. Walk the dog.
  2. Take a quick walk around the block
  3. Take a shower with your favorite shower gel
  4. Sit in the car for a few minutes before going into the office or into the house
  5. Get up 15 minutes earlier and enjoy the quiet before starting your day
  6. Stay up 15 minutes later and enjoy a moment at the end of the day
  7. Use your breaks or part of your lunch to enjoy quiet time (go for a walk, read a book in your car if you need to)
  8. Stop for a quick cup of coffee on the way home.
  9. Call an old friend and catch up while driving.
  10. While running errands, stop into a favorite store and get yourself a little something.
What other ways can you think of to fit a little self-care into your busy day?
