Take a Me Day!

I'm grateful that I finished knitting up my cozy wristies for these blustery days.  I'll be happier when there's a good amount of the white stuff on the ground.  Brightens up the dark winter days. 

I have a question for you.
Are you good at taking time for yourself? 

Do you ever take time off, but then feel guilty or feel like you should be doing something else?

Well, I have a cure for you, it's called ME TIME!

Sounds selfish, doesn't it?  And it is, in the most delicious way.

I took a “me day” this week and decided I would make a little video about it.

Now it's your turn!  I'd love to hear from you in the comments below

When are you going to take some me time?  Remember it could be just an hour.

What would you like to do (or not do) to enjoy your time off?

If you're a me time expert, tell me how you like to take time for yourself.

FYI, email, telephone and youtube are sandtraps to be avoided during your me time.  More often than not (and I know this from experience) it's just fodder for anxiety and worries, especially if you're trying to take some time off. 

Put your phone on airport mode, close your computer and run a bath. 

I always love hearing from you so drop me a line with any questions you might have and please pass this along to your pal who never takes a day off.

Take care,



p.s. If you're reading this and you're not on my list, you should really get yourself on it!  I send out a fun and useful email just about every week on clearing clutter and living life.  Just pop on over here to get on!  All the cool kids are doing it!

Hi Cecilia,
I think you are ready for prime time TV! This is the second video I have watched. It cracks me up. I love it. You have a great video personality. I hope whoever "they" are discover you and give you your own show. I like the lack of "earnestnes" and love the close ups.

Thanks Mary! I enjoy spending a little quality time with my peeps. The nice thing about this "new technology" is that I can give myself a show, no need to wait for prime time. ;)

p.s. I missed you on the island tonight! Let's visit soon!

Love, love, love the video and the message! I have booked myself an entire day this month for 'me time'. I'm pretty good about taking time off, guilt-free, but usually I do things with others during that time. It will be a nice treat to just be by myself and do what I want. Thanks for the reminder Cecilia. I always make time to read your blog posts - so insightful!

Yay Hellen! So happy to hear that you are taking a me day in December. I really noticed how important it is to have one on one time with myself. I love catching up with friends, but I think I'm more of an introvert than I realized, I need that quiet time for inspiration.

I'm so curious, what are you going to do on your "me day"?

November 30, 2012 | Registered CommenterCecilia Moorcroft

I hear ya Cecilia. I'm more of an introvert than I realized and have been enjoying quiet time to myself a lot these days discovering things that I love. This has included starting a regular meditation practice, changing a few eating habits and listening to my 'shoulds'. I'm actually getting less done, as in the "stuff & busyness" of day to day life. And I'm feeling like I"m getting more done from the inside out. So I'm kinda having an overall ME transformation, I think. Thanks for your posts. Always delivered with a smile and some fun! :)
