JUST FOR YOU JUNE – Creating the habit of having a little ‘me’ time and reaping the rewards!
We give and give, to our job, to our partner, to our family and friends. We always do everything for everyone, but we don’t often do things just for ourselves.
We deserve to nurture and honour ourselves, you will be happier with-in yourself if you find a little time everyday to do something just for you.
Every day this month, you will find a little treat, task or tip that will be something you can do just for YOU!
Good habbits have to be formed, just like bad habits form if you do the same negative thing on a regular basis.
You are worth it, you are valuable, so do something everyday just for you!
DAY 1 – HAVE AN INSPIRING READ!
Grab a magazine and a cup of tea, coffee or a glass of champagne if that is more your style and get lost in the beauty of pictures and light reading.
A beautiful magazine that is on a topic you enjoy or would like to know more about will provide you with a lovely respite from the everyday and maybe provide some inspiration for a new project.
Try and buy a magazine that usually do not buy.
If you love cooking, buy a ‘foodie’ mag and you will probably discover a new recipe or 10 that you can try.
If you are into fashion, discover the new season colours, shapes and must have wardrobe essentials.
If you love to craft, maybe look at a new style that you have not yet ventured into.
My favourite are all the health related ones, like Wellbeing, Nature And Health and so forth. Reading one of those always makes me get up off the couch and into the gym!
If you can’t decide on a specific genre, you can’t go past Womens Weekly or Better Homes And Gardens, which venture down lot’s of different paths.
Just relax, breathe and enjoy a little light reading.
What is your favourite magazine?

Thanks for reminding to take a little time to read for fun. I miss checking out W magazine with all the beautiful pictures.
Funny, I don’t think I’ve picked up a magazine (except for those rather outdated ones at the doctor’s office) in years! I tend to look for a book when I want some me time, rather than a magazine which will, undoubtedly, be filled with ads. I suppose it’s just personal preference, but me time, however it’s taken is definitely worth it!
I´m buying almost no magazines these days as I read a lot on line. I love reading blogs as perpetually updated autobiographies, including life dramas, joys and crafting. 🙂
I buy only one local magazine a month to use it for my Full Moon Board collages: the OhLaLá ( http://www.revistaohlala.com/)
Great reminder…I usually have a few books on the go and choose whichever suits the current mood…Cheers Di
