Importance of quality me-time


We know we are going to sound rather cliché here, but at Breeze House, we just love any excuse to sit back, relax and enjoy some quality ‘me time’. It’s safe to say that most of us don’t have enough of it. And we are even more confident in saying that most people really don’t see it as a priority in their busy lives.

However, we think it’s time that all changed.

After all, our whole Breeze House ethos is built on the foundations of enjoying life to the full, soaking up the wonders that the great outdoors has to offer and really making quality time out of the life you have away from the stresses and strains of work, schedules, school runs, appointments and more.

There’s really is so much to be said for switching off the phone, picking up your favourite book and just turning your back on the world for a while. There should be no guilt in doing so either! In order for you to be at your best at work or to be the most focused parent you can be for the kids, you need time to relax and recharge. Whether you wrap up under a cosy blanket under the stars with a steaming mug of hot cocoa, or you make time for you and your partner to sip wine, catch up, laugh and have a romantic date night in your own garden, it doesn’t matter how much ‘me-time’ you have, it’s about the quality of it; what you actually do with the free time you have.

A British study recently found that it’s not just the quantity of this so-called ‘me-time’ that’s important. It’s actually the quality which has the most effect. A better quality ‘me-time’ experience is said to better improve your work-life balance, your wellbeing and your engagement at work.

So, when you next find a gap in your diary, fill it with a meaningful, enjoyable and pleasant activity you really enjoy. Make the most of that time so you can look back fondly on it as time really well spent. Grab 20 minutes before work reading the next chapter of your book, painting your nails or reading the paper in your Breeze House. Or highlight a time in your diary and mark it clearly as ‘me-time’. It’s just as important as any other meeting you may have scheduled in, and should be prioritised as such.

After all, owning a Breeze House is all about that perfect little retreat in your garden, so make the most of that luxury, and relax – with Breeze House.
