You can’t be the best version of you if you’re run down and don’t get a chance to recharge. Self-care is imperative. It’s okay to be a little selfish.

Even when you hit a rough patch and your calendar seems like it’s on steroids, don’t give up the time that you have dedicated to yourself. Regardless of what you choose to do with your “me” time, don’t be tempted to give it up when your calendar starts to get full.
