Make Time For You

Women's Health (South Africa) - - WE HEAR YOU -

I re­cently came to a point in my life where I was burnt out on ev­ery level pos­si­ble. As a se­cond-year stu­dent, I stud­ied hard to do well aca­dem­i­cally, trained very hard to im­prove my fit­ness lev­els and spent a lot of time with friends. Although I love do­ing all of th­ese things, for some rea­son I was ex­hausted. Why? I did some in­tro­spec­tion and a close friend gave me the an­swer to my ques­tion: I spent so much time try­ing to bal­ance ev­ery­thing that I to­tally ne­glected my­self and did not make any time to do some­thing that made me feel good or brought me joy. I im­me­di­ately de­cided that I’m go­ing to start pri­ori­tis­ing my time. Women’s Health was the first thing I thought about when I de­cided to do some­thing that would feed my soul and bring me joy. I’m like a kid in a candy shop when I see the new­est edi­tion of WH on the shelves. The Sep­tem­ber is­sue def­i­nitely didn’t dis­ap­point and read­ing it was the best “me-time” I could’ve asked for. Thank you for an amaz­ing mag­a­zine and for bring­ing my joy back.
