5 Ways to Get in More Me Time #OrchardValleyHarvest

If there is one thing that I know I need more of, it's ‘me time.' Don't we all need a little more time for ourselves? I know that I would love to schedule an hour or 90 minutes each and every day just for myself. We have some simple solutions for making the absolute most of the time that you give yourself. This is me time for those without a lot of time. We hope that you enjoy our 5 Ways to Get in More Me Time.

5 Ways to Get in More Me Time

1. Schedule it on your calendar.

This is something that I have had to do for years. I schedule pretty much everything in my life because I need to know how much time I truly have each day and I want to be able to devote the proper amount of time to whatever I choose to do. Putting an event on my calendar makes it more official so even if I am reading in a hammock on my back deck, it's still scheduled on the calendar.

2. Set a timer.

5 Ways to Get in More Me Time3. Decide how to best spend your time and then stick to your plan to maximize efforts.

This one takes some effort at first. I always have to do this when it comes to housework and regular work. I have projects that can pay well and so it makes sense to hire a housekeeper and no matter how many times I am tempted to cancel to save money, I stick to my plan because I know that it saves me time and money.

4. Ask for help.

People who know me will laugh that I am even saying this but asking for help is key if you need more me time. Hire a housekeeper for a day or part time to help out in the house. Get a babysitter for a few hours each week or consider a babysitting share with friends. Figure out a way to delegate by asking for help where you can get it.

5 Ways to Get in More Me Time 5 Ways to Get in More Me Time5. Add Orchard Valley Harvest snacks to your bag for perfect spontaneous snacking on-the-go food adventure at any time.

This is just a no brainer to me. I love snacking but I also don't like junk food (or I do but I know to consume it in very limited quantities) so I want to make sure that I am snacking on something good.

Orchard Valley Harvest is dedicated to finding pure and simple nuts and dried sweetened fruits that support my healthy lifestyle. The nuts and fruits used in Orchard Valley Harvest products are picked at their peak, minimally processed and contain no artificial ingredients, colors, flavors or preservatives.
