Are you one of the many women who find it hard to let themselves take time ‘off’? Moxie Market will be bringing you leisure ideas to pique your interest and inspire you to make the most of your ‘me time’.
Some find it easy to maintain a good work–life balance; others struggle to find that balance and to even come to terms with the fact that it’s ok to take ‘time off’ from paid work and the daily chores to do something of interest entirely for themselves without feeling a sense of guilt. Why is that?
After years of selflessly raising families, possibly providing for them as well, when those demands have lessened - or even gone - it can take some adjustment. There comes a realisation that it’s ok to say ‘I’m not cooking tonight’, ‘I’m meeting a girlfriend for a drink after work’. It can be a little exciting to be a bit selfish, to rediscover your own likes and dislikes, to say ‘no’ and even draw up a bucket list of things you want to do.
It could be something as simple as sitting down to read a book during the day, going for a walk by yourself or with a friend, taking up golf, cycling or dancing.
