How Can I Find Time For Myself During My Busy Day?

By Melissa B. Rayn

Life is hectic. Face it. It seems like, if we're not actively doing something, then we're on our way to the next thing. There is laundry to do, dinner to prepare, work piling up on your desk and you're already late for your son's soccer practice. How in the world are you supposed to find time for yourself?

Yet at the same time you know that you will be a much better spouse, mother, friend and employee if your life is in balance and you take time to relax and rejuvenate.


We are all limited to 24 hours in any given day. Since you can't get extra time, you need to free up a few hours a day by delegating some of your tasks. Get the kids and your spouse to help out around the house, ask someone else to work out all the details for the church fundraiser this year, and delegate some of your simpler tasks at work to your assistant or if you own your own business, consider outsourcing.

Tackle One Thing At A Time

Multitasking is great, but sometimes you waste a lot of time trying to get 5 things done at the same time. Try focusing on one project at a time, putting your head down and getting it done before moving on to the next one. You'll find yourself getting things done much faster without all the distractions multi-tasking can bring.

Schedule "Me Time First

Make yourself a priority. There are always going to be at least 25 other things that you could be doing. Just ignore them for a moment and schedule time for yourself first. Get out your day planner and block out a few hours each week that are just for you. Unless there is a dire emergency, don't reschedule.

Now that you have carved out some time for yourself, put it to good use. Take a hot bath, read a good book, or give yourself a facial. Relax before diving back into your hectic everyday life.
