Taking time for ourselves is often something we put on the back burner after everything else is accomplished.  The thing is, we never finish all those things we want/need to do, so time for us rarely happens unless we plan for it.

Friday was just such a day I had planned for me! It started as most days do, with a trip to the gym, something I love.  Then if was off to a massage.  This was not just any massage though, today I was trying something new, an ayurvedic massage.   I went to the Ayurvedic Bodywork Center in Raleigh and experienced a wonderful treatment by Gin Brunssen. 

This was different than any massage I have experience in the past.  It was deeper, warmer and energizing at the same time as calming.  The residual effects lasted throughout the rest of my day, bringing me a sense of well being physically and mentally as I enjoyed the rest of my “time for me” day. 

What did I do with the rest of my day?  I spent time reading, enjoyed healthy meals and worked on my creative space.  What a great time I had!

When is the last time you took a day for yourself?  What would you choose to do with it?
