      music is my outlet for giving myself a break. it is so important to have that escape, as daily life can seemingly get cumbersome on us out of nowhere.

      in a sense, this is why I enjoy Readup, a home away from home in some form. how often have you fellow users upset about reading an article? probably not much is my guess!

        Pretty much never! Same with going for a walk. I always try to remind myself of that every single day so that whenever I have an inclination to read an article or go for a walk I just do it rather than overthink it or make some excuse not to. Doesn't always make it easy though.

      Creative living requires the luxury of space for ourselves, even if all we manage to carve out is one special bookshelf and a windowsill that is ours.

      Loved this! I agree that making time for oneself is paramount, a MUST, especially women, who tend to put themselves last. We need to replenish the well - ness.
