Oh my gosh, you are a lot of work. Have you ever added it all up? From laundry to grocery shopping, it is all self-maintenance. Add in exercise, hair salons, pedicures, make-up routines, doctor visits, medications, vitamins, making outfits (that you don’t’ like and discard and try another) and even getting to bed. Seriously, taking care of you is a big chunk of time when added altogether.
Solution: Even when you are the type to skimp on your own care, which I don’t recommend, it is still a lot. That doesn’t mean you can’t do a better job with your time.
- Streamline. Both hair and make-up routines can be streamlined. Talk to your stylist about your hair style and routine to find a way to make it easier. Have a makeover with the idea of cutting back on both products and time. Learn some easy techniques with minimal products to save time. Besides, it is a great way to keep your look up-to-date.
- Go to bed. Being tired all day is like walking under water. It is hard. You get less done and you can’t focus. Even though you have things to do, stop doing them and go to bed. Have a set bedtime to turn off electronics and lights and go to sleep. You’ll benefit by getting more done daily.
Until next time …
