Reasons You Need Me-Time

As the business world becomes more integrated with technology, the line between business hours and non-business hours has blurred.

Smartphones and smaller computers have made answering work emails and other routine work tasks much easier to do on the go. But this added convenience has come at a price.

Now there’s the expectation to handle things immediately. Long gone are your parents’ workplaces where things could wait to be taken care of on Monday. The added expectation to handle things remotely, and the growing trend of additional freelance work on the side, can throw off employees’ work-life balance.

That’s why it’s important to add a block of time in your schedule to relax and do leisure activities. Here are the reasons you need me-time in your life.

Recharge Your Batteries

One of the best things me-time can do is to help make your work more enjoyable. When people do not schedule time for themselves, it allows their thoughts about work to creep into their off-hours. This gives the feeling that you can’t escape your upcoming assignments and creates a sense of dread going into each work day.

Take time to do purely recreational things like watching a movie or TV show, reading for pleasure, taking a walk, or spending time with friends and family. By doing this you’ll be able to get your mind off work and come to work mentally refreshed, ready to take on the day.

If you use a daily planner, use it to pencil in a time non-work-related things.

Reflect on What’s Going on In Your Life


It can be easy to get wrapped up in the things directly in front of us that we forget to look at the big picture. Your me-time doesn’t have to be spent being “unproductive”, it can be used as time to reflect on work and things outside of work. Use this time to set goals at work and outside of work.

Complete Tasks Put on the Back-Burner

When we’re busy with work, it’s easy to put off the not-so-fun tasks like running errands around town or assembling a Swedish bookshelf. Your me-time can be used to complete tasks that aren’t a huge priority during the nine to five grind.

Cleaning is not a fun activity to some people, but taking time to pick up things around the house now will come in handy later. You’ll thank yourself when you’re coming home to a clean house after an exhausting day. When you complete these smaller tasks, you’ll have a sense of accomplishment which will help give your downtime extra meaning.

Unfortunately, not all employers recognize how difficult it can sometimes be to separate work from employee’s personal lives.
