'a month of me time' update

Today is day 3 of a 'month of me time'. For the next 30 days, I'm concentrating on me, as simple as this may sound and even seem.

Each evening Karen Wallace, Founder and Editor of The Calm Space, forwards me an email, detailing a tip to nourish my soul. This is so inspiring. A gentle reminder to guide me ever so slowly. To support and help me refocus on me!

The focus for day 1, taking time to drink water! Drinking water is vital to our health and vitality, getting through a busy day requires plenty of both.

Friday night I was feeling so inspired, I drank a litre of water. I need to consistently remind myself to drink water, and lots of it! Naturally I don't crave water nor do I often suffer extreme thirst.

The focus for day 2, listen to good music!

Following in my father's footsteps, I love a variety of music. Great music can inspire, uplift, motivate and even calm.

When I'm home I often have music playing in the background. Before going to sleep I enjoy a relaxing CD which does a great job in assisting me to unwind and switch off from my day and my thoughts.

The focus for day 3, book a check-up with the Doctor! What a great reminder. Taking care of our health and physical well being is taking time of ME.

These tips are a fabulous reminder on how I can take time out for me. How I can start to look after me!

Are these 3 tips part of your day already? Do they come naturally or like me do you need to refocus your attention and actions, to shift your focus more towards yourself?


  1. Sounds like you've made a great start :o)

    For the last two months I have been drinking a minimum of 1.5 litres of water a day. I've noticed a number of benefits, the most surprising of which is that I don't get hangovers when I drink. Yay!

  2. The month of me looks fabulous. Good on you! Can't wait to follow how you go on your journey. X Bel

  3. Good for you, drinking water - for me to get my 2L in, i try to drink at least 1.5L by midday then the rest is easy & i'm not busting to go to toilet all night. Really healthy. I take a 600ml bottle of water to school, top it up at school & drink another on the way home in the car. Love Posie

  4. Hello Ladies, thank you for your ever so supportive comments. I really appreciate the time you take to leave me a comment.
    Kelly and Posie, it's great for me to receive your feedback on how you manage to drink so much water each day! Posie, your tip is a great heads up for me - thank you x I'll give it a good try this week :)

  5. I'm working on the more water one at the moment. Its such an easy one, but one that I just forget to do most of the time.

    Taking time out to take myself to the doctors, that's a toughie. I ussually do a "while I'm here with child A or B, would you mind having a look at my (insert illness/abnormality here)".

  6. I love all of this so much!
    One of my new year's resolutions was to drink more water. I know how good I feel when I do, which isn't very often. I have a 1.5 bottle next to the sink. I fill it each morning and try to drink it all each day.
    I NEVER listen to music that I choose but I am about to head out to school pick up and you have inspired me to take my own cd.
    Doctor check up? Unless I'm pregnant, its all about the girls and like Jo above, oh yeah, by the way, while I'm here...
