Oprah: Taking a day off

One of the busiest women in Hollywood, Oprah has had to learn to prioritize self-care in order to avoid burnout. The primary way she shows herself a little love and recharges her batteries, is by taking a day off. The mogul wrote on her website, “I always give myself Sundays as a spiritual base of renewal—a day when I do absolutely nothing. I sit in my jammies or take a walk, and I allow myself time to BE—capital B-E—with myself. When I don’t, I absolutely become stressed, irritable, anxiety-prone, and not the person I want to be in the world.” While you may not have the luxury of taking a whole day off each week, try scheduling in at least a small block of non-negotiable time to do whatever it is that makes your heart sing. You’re sure to find that you feel more relaxed and centered after the fact.
