Mental Health-Take 10 minutes today
I have always believed that our mental health is just as, if not more, important than our physical health. When we have our minds right then our bodies will follow. I have never experienced a time when my body did not respond positively to my positive thinking. It is true, you really can only do what you believe you can do.
I do not want to give you the same ol spiel you have heard but I am going to tell you why you deserve more. You may think you are special because of what you are expecting from other people. You want people to put aside at least 10 minutes of their day for you, or do a quick favor, or listen to your stories about your day, but you are NOT willing to give time to YOURSELF.
How can we expect these things of others if we are unwilling to give them to ourselves? Take time to spend with yourself, get in touch with who you are and who you want to be, and LOVE yourself.
The more you give in life then the more you will receive. This is not only true for others but for yourself. Once I started to devote more time to bettering myself mentally I noticed changes in my life that have generated positive results.
If you do not think you can take 10 minutes (at least) out of your day to do something for yourself then you cannot expect that of others. You are WORTH more than 10 minutes so give yourself that, act like that is true, you DESERVE that time. Don't spend time waiting for things to happen, start visualizing and make them happen. You will notice the changes when you take time to appreciate yourself on a level of which you would like others to appreciate you.
So here's my challenge to you: spend at least 10 minutes every day with yourself, no music, no pets, no people, just you and the space around you. It may feel uncomfortable at first but in the long run you will find that distraction free zone is a wonderful place for clearing your mind and discovering things about yourself that you were missing the mark on before. I guarantee you you will NOT regret 10 minutes spent on YOU. There is ALWAYS time for the things in our life that matter and that are worth it, so MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF.
