What do you do when you're so overloaded with things in your life that you have no time for yourself? Do you continue to perform all your duties and obligations, or do you forget about it for a while? I'm in this situation currently and I just plain don't know how to find the time for doing what I like to do anymore...any help would be appreciated here.

Wow...that's a good question.
I guess a lot would depend on what else is taking up your time.

I guess what I would do is prioritize....
what can I let go for a day or two and what can't I.
Is there anything that I can delegate to someone else, to help take pressure off of me.
Force myself to take at least 15-30 minutes a day to my self......
doing what ever I felt like.
Walking, reading, crosswords, a long hot bath etc.
Organize....I have found that the more organized I am, the smoother my life seems to run.
With out knowing what all the details are in your life....it's hard to answer specifically...
Hope these few ideas that work for me can work for you.

Well see........if I'm so busy that I have no time whatsoever for myself......that means it's VERY important......but otherwise I'm lazy......I push everything to the side and I always have time for myself.
I think that's very imp. for mental stability.
If you have NO TIME.....maybe you oughta scheduel yourself......



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

You cannot give something that you do not have to give. Take time for yourself. Even Christ himself, took time away from his apostles to pray and meditate and replenish.

Find what feeds your soul? and do it. The next day will look better...IF NOT...then hold out for the next.
So find what you love and do it, love! and HUGS.

Thank you for all the good suggestions everyone. I think my biggest problem is that I don't prioritize...even my health has suffered lately due to the lack of attention I give myself....I've decided that I must change that, whatever it takes. So, I'll keep in mind what everyone said and thank you all again!
