Spend some time for yourself, just for yourself...!

My basic intention of posting this stuff here is that I really want you to go back and have some time spent for yourself, just for yourself and enjoy the eventual magical moments you go through. Oops, I’ve not just meant that you never had those moments spent for yourself. But I do believe that in the recent times where our circumstances are driving our thinking and life styles, I would not mind saying that we are not taking care of ourselves despite of saying ‘take care’ or ‘tc’ to every friend at the end of a chat.

Well, when I say, that we are not taking care of ourselves I don’t mean from the sense of physical appearance or healthy food habits, as the beauty care tips are having their own good existence along with various centers to explain the healthy food habits and their significance. We all have to take care of the most important cubicle of our body, i.e. our mind.

I don’t think I’m required to mention various ways of taking care of our minds as the websites compete like none to give you the information. Rather I just want to let you all know that spending some time just for ourselves in a day, in a week, in a month, in an year makes us empowered to take care of our own people in a far better way, and which I feel is the best way of the bests to take care of ourselves.

** Go to a shopping mall alone… just think about yourself… think about your own needs… pick the items… come out with a bag full of items which you like and only for you…

** Go to a book shop alone… pick up the books of your own interests…

** Go to a gift shop like the famous Archies, alone again… Enjoy doing rounds in between the neatly placed beautiful gifts… pick up something which you would love to have on your writing table or on your bed room wall…

These are the classic examples of the places where we regularly go either to get something for home needs, to buy something to present to a friend etc ad generally we go along with somebody. But when we visit such places alone and get the things just for ourselves, we feel all together better which can not be explained so easily. I did it couple of times and I’m out of words when I have to express the after effects.

Not just that, wake up early in the morning… do whatever you love… just spend some time for yourself and your day will be cool…

Sleep early in the night… just think about yourself… and take rest…

It is nothing illogical or selfishness. It is quite logical though. We love ourselves the most, who is ready to debate? When we spend time for ourselves we feel a kind of completeness in our expectations which makes us live with a positive outfit to spread out the joy and love to our loved ones in a far better way. And no question of selfishness here as we all believe that when we love something we are ready to do anything for it; when we love ourselves we must do something special for ourselves.

So friends, try it out. Have some time exclusively for yourself in your day to day life and enjoy the fruits of completeness.

oh yes! 'me time' is very important for me. if not for anything else, just to collect my thoughts. the ever flowing river of life, the people in our life, and all happenings can sometimes drown you. you get lost in the mundane existence charted out day by day. I love 'me time'. I often go for a walk.. or read a book. just quiet time. nobody to interrupt my thoughts.
very important topic. I am glad you have spoken out for it.

Taking time to spend with your Self, is the beginning of the spiritual process...

A Thamizh Saint called Vallalar has said, "Thanithiru, Vilzhthiru, Pasithiru."

Meaning; Be alone, Be Awake, Be Hungry.

So, as you said, there nothing selfish about being alone, and thinking about your Self. "coz only those who can appreciate loneliness and can appreciate friendship, too :)

Nice thoughts, Pramoda.....And congrats on ur 400th post :-)
