I am the Queen of doing too much. I have two jobs, work seven days a week (except for last week – BLISS!) and run Escapade. On my day off on Saturday (the first in 5 weeks) I didn’t know what to do with myself! I came to realisation that I have forgotten how to relax.

I don’t own a TV (a fact that my little sister claims is “lame) and don’t tend to calm myself down before I go to sleep (hence the dreams where I am one of the X-Men – very traumatic). These days people cram as much as they can into 24 hours and don’t take care of themselves. How many of us get sick more often every winter? Cut down on exercise because we simply “do not have time”? I am guilty and I am sure a lot of us are.

So, what have you done for yourself lately? It doesn’t have to take a serious chunk of your day. It could just be a 20 minute bath with your favourite flavoured bath bombs and re-painting your toenails a bright shade. It could be watching a movie in your pajamas with a bowl of popcorn. It could be going to a yoga or pilates class.

Try it – every day this week, take time out to take a break and do something for YOU.
