Many people, especially families with young children, lead very busy lives, and the suggestion of taking time out to oneself might seem ludicrous and absurd. However, it is very important.
In times of high stress or crisis, the challenges might seem like a mighty mountain, a insurpassable wall, you might feel completely stuck and have no idea which way to turn. Time out just for you can help you to gain the perspective you need to look at the challenges in a different way. To perhaps consider alternative options to the path you are currently on. It might be helpful to consider the following questions for yourself;
-What am I doing right now that just isn’t working?
-What are my alternative options, and how do I set about pursuing them?
-What is going well right now?
-How have I coped in the past during challenging times, and am I doing that now?
Again, there may be times when life does become too much to handle. When we find ourselves constantly climbing out of the black hole, feeling overwhelmed with the pressures of life, it may be time to seek counselling .
