What do you do with your “me” time. For me, it’s my mornings. Coffee, exercise, meditation…all in the morning. Most days, I don’t speak to another human being until I arrive at work.  

Now – I understand that I am fortunate to have a schedule that allows me a more relaxing, quiet morning. But I am definitely not the norm.

In fact – this new study says that the average person only gets about 43 minutes of “me time” a day.  That’s about five hours a week.

So – what is stopping people from having more “me time?”  Here are the top five things from the study:

1.  Too much noise.

2.  Work.

3.  Stressing out over the news.

4.  My significant other.

5.  My kids. 

Make more time for yourself. Self-care should not be optional!
