I don’t know about you but as I get older time just seems to go by much quicker. Especially now that I’m pregnant, I feel like I don’t have enough time to do anything. I work, I come home and then I pass out and do it all over again. On my days off, I take one of those days to mostly relax because if I don’t, the work week just seems so much longer and my feet start hurting so much earlier. The other day off is for errands and what not like grocery shopping or doctors appointments or simple meeting up with friends. I just feel like there isn’t enough time to do everything we should be doing but at the same time, I need to take care of myself and rest too.
Self-care for me sometimes is about finding that right balance between work and play and rest. If only time would slow down maybe it will be easier to find that balance.
One thing is for sure though, always make time for yourself and loved ones, everything else can wait.
No matter how stressed I am about not getting stuff done, I make sure to spend some time for myself (like taking that day to mostly rest) and spending time with loved ones. I know since I’ve gotten pregnant, we have definitely made more of an effort to see his family more as his family is here and mines not. I’m kind of happy we don’t have to worry about making time for both families. It helps ease a little bit of the stress.
Have you found time to be going by too quickly?
