Schedule Your Serenity: Contrary to selfishness, scheduling "me time" is essential for maintaining balance. Grab a cup of herbal tea, sit down with a planner (like our undated weekly planner – no paper wasted on skipped weeks), and plan out your week. Whether it's a short walk, a 15-minute yoga session, or meditation, write it down. The act of writing deepens your connection with the information and helps solidify your commitment to self-care.
