If there’s one thing I’ve learned about being a busy working adult woman, it’s that sometimes you just need a break. Obviously hard work, believing in yourself, surrounding yourself with positive people (the list goes on and on) are all very important parts of life and important aspects of success. However, I’ve found that in life, specifically within time management, you need to make time for yourself to just relax and enjoy. A date night, a Netflix binge, or a good ol’ fashioned ladies’ night! Forget about counting calories and eat that chocolate filled croissant, girl. Sit back, relax and enjoy. Engage in conversion that doesn’t revolve around you or your work or your worries. Laugh, cry, vent whatever you need to do, but just enjoy yourself. Sometimes I get so busy and so focused that I forget to talk to people, I mean really talk to the people who are right in front of me. And I love talking to people!
For me, it’s the evenings that I struggle with… I’m already exhausted, but have so much more work to do, I end up neglecting the people around me. Not on purpose, it just happens. So, the moral of the story is, take a break. Have that girls’ night. Eat the pastry. Because in the end, the relationships that you make, the laughter filled memories, are what count in the end any way. You don’t even have to go out and spend a bunch of money to make those memories. Stay at home and chat the night away!
Speaking of staying in, somehow lights make a space feel more homey. Perhaps it’s the added illumination, or the physical warmth, but I definitely feel like the right lighting can create the perfect ambiance, whatever the space. These cafe string lights from Jasco are great because they’re energy efficient (you’ll never have to replace them) and they can really go in any space (your patio, office, garage, bedroom, etc.). You can even get a Bluetooth smart switch that allows you to turn your lights on and off from your phone!
If you don’t have any cafe lights to illuminate that perfect relaxing space, you can enter to win some! Head over to the Cafe Lights Giveaway and enter to win a fabulous room makeover with all of the lights you’ll ever need.
Good luck! I hope that you make some time for yourself this week! Let me know how it goes!
