Yes, it’s a “Parks and Rec” reference.
I recently re-watched that series and this concept that was touted in a couple of episodes, always hits home with me. I think it’s very important that we take time to take care of ourselves. Not an “In these trying times…” kind of thing, but every day, good or bad, make time for a moment that is just about you. I
- Buy yourself something, A candy bar or small trinket
- Get alone for ten minutes and just think of your happy place
- Watch your favorite episode of your favorite TV show again
- Listen to your favorite album with your headphones on
In Parks and rec, it was all about extravagance and opulence. It ended up financially devastating the participants. In real life it doesn’t have to be extravagant or out of your means. The idea is not to buy happiness but to simply sit and smell the roses for a few minutes each day. The idea is to invest a small amount of time in your overall happiness and well being.
Invest in yourself today. Make time today to treat yo self.
Until next time
