Spending “me time” is key in nourishing your connections – be it with your partner, family members, or even friends.

If you don’t take time for yourself, you’re going to be bringing your raggedest self into your relationships. And we don’t want to be projecting our frustrations on others, right?

Taking time to recharge isn’t selfish. It’s a gracious act of filling yourself first so that you have enough to share.

Tune in to this episode: Why "Me Time" Matters in Relationships.

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ “Me time” teaches us and others how to love. Doing activities you enjoy tells you that your well-being deserves to be prioritized. It also shows others how you want to be loved. It’s a form of boundary setting.

✔️ You have control over how much you give and when to replenish. You bring more energy when your cup is full. It’s not their fault you feel exhausted. Resource yourself first then love from your saucer, the overflow from your cup.

✔️ Look for leaks and plug them. What activities drain you? See if you can hand them off. If not, reframe your mindset. Take a break and go back to it when you are more rested.

✔️ Rejuvenate. Three minutes a day of a grounding activity is enough. Fill yourself up before crossing off your to-do list. It’s going to feel much better at the end of the day.
