Middle-Aged Women: You Deserve More Than 5 Hours a Week for Yourself!

Middle-aged women are often busy with work, family, and other commitments. But it's important to make time for yourself, even if it's just for a few hours a week. Here are some tips on how to do:

Identify your needs

What do you need to recharge and feel your best? Make a list of activities that you enjoy and that make you feel good.

Schedule time for yourself

Once you know what you need, schedule time for it in your calendar. Just like you would schedule any other important appointment.

Say no

It's okay to say no to things if you don't have the time or energy. It's important to set boundaries and protect your time.


If you have the ability to delegate tasks, do it! This will free up your time so that you can focus on the things that are most important to you.

Take breaks

Get up and move around every 20-30 minutes to avoid burnout. Take breaks to stretch, go for a walk, or talk to a friend.


There are many services that can help you save time, such as meal delivery, grocery delivery, and house cleaning. Consider outsourcing tasks that you don't have time for or don't enjoy doing.

Don't be afraid to ask for help

It's okay to ask your partner, family, or friends for help if you need it. Don't be afraid to delegate tasks or ask for time to yourself.

Remember, you deserve it!

You deserve to have time for yourself, even if it's just for a few hours a week. Taking care of yourself is important for your physical and mental health.
