Feeling burnt-out? How to find some relaxing personal time.
When’s the last time you did something just for yourself? It’s hard to find a little “me” time when we’re busy working and raising a family. But without a little relaxing personal time, we’re not going to be the best parent or the best partner we can be, plus we deserve to take care of ourselves. Carol Ummel Lindquist, author of Happily Married With Kids elaborates.
“The reason that personal time, relaxing personal time is so important is because if you are so worn-out, burned out and fatigued, you’re going to be irritable with your spouse and with your child and the family is going to be unhappy. You just won’t be using your best communication skills and it sets up a pattern of deterioration in the marriage, so in order to have a happy marriage and a happy family you need to have some of that refueling time. I think the important is to recognize that you need that time and to work together as a couple to schedule it.”
