    A big hello to all

    Family, work and the responsibilities keep us on toes most of the time. Some times we feel that life just isn't ours any more. It takes great will power to take a pause in between the chores and create a space for ourselves.

    We ladies apart from the many responsibilities have many roles to play, daughter, spouse, mother, friend, sibling and have a career to look after. We get lost playing many roles.

    Taking time for yourself always renews energy and sense of peace, creates mental balance and makes you rediscover yourself.

    Taking time for yourself dose not necessarily mean taking a day off or going for shopping. It means sitting in your favorite chair in your favorite place, reading your favorite book, listen to music of your choice, having a cup of coffee, going for a walk, talking to your friend. It is important for you to pursue you ambition, hobbies.

    The best time to choose time for yourself is in the morning. It makes you more centered on the thoughts. Try and get up half an hour before others, make yourself a cup of coffee/tea, read the news paper or listen to your favorite music, do some meditation, stretch exercises or any activity of your choice.

    Take time for yourself, make your time a priority. You will be a happier person, everything around you looks positive. So ladies go ahead and take time for yourself.

    4mangopeople,
    You rightly strike the note. Yes, there is no time for ourselves. What you said is rightly resembles in day to day lives of every working married women.
    Sometimes I feel, life before marriage was great,before that life during college days was just simply great. I would say, Every passing day is great to the next day.
    Life can't be easy and no doubt!! Everyday is unique and challenging.
    There is no time to breath,no time to sit,no time to eat or sleep, in a nutshell, there is no time to think!!!!!!!!!!!
    Taking a breathing space is hard to imagine at this point of time, but definitely rejunevate our soul and will help in boosting our energy to go ahead with lives!

    Hi Priya_Mommy

    Good to know another Hyderabadi shares the same opinion. Sure we must create breathing space for ourself to be sane and rejuvenate ourselves to go ahead.

    I think what everyone needs to realise is that there is no such thing as a stress free life. The trick is being able to cope with stress. Most of us don’t even realise we are stressed till we reach breaking point. So everyone needs to take time out to relax, be themselves and simply destress.
