Do you have enough time for your self-care? Probably not! I have a few tips to help you find a little more time for relaxing and self-care. These are from the Do it! Delegate it! Dump it! For Self-Care System:
Please Do it for Self-care
Anything that takes 5 minutes or less, DO IT and forget about it. Write the check, put it away, make a quick call, or reply to the email. There, it’s done and off your list and out of your mind.
As you are going through your list of things that need to get done, ask yourself, can someone else do this? Can I hire someone to do this? Pay your kid some extra chore money?
Asking for help isn’t always easy, but there is no reason why other family members can’t cook dinner or put a kid to bed to give you some much-needed time alone.
Sometimes when you ask for help, you will get some resistance. People don’t really like change! Hopefully, with some honest communication, you will be able to get a few things off your plate.

Talk about a stress reducer!
Some things don’t need to get done. I don’t match socks. If you want socks at my house, dig through the basket. Is there an easier way to get the same result? Does the Party plan get stressful? Pick up some store-made food. If I make too many plans for the weekend, I have no problem canceling because I needed at-home time. My friends understand. I never bail on my commitments, like volunteer work, but I will cancel other plans if I’m overly stressed. When stress piles up, start dumping and get a massage!
What can you Do, Dump or Delegate today? Please do it now and take it off your list. Delegate and have it done. Dump the harder way if there is an easier way with the same result.
