Ten minutes seems like a brief time allotment, which it is. Yet, too many people are hung up on not looking or feeling productive all the time on the job or off. Would I feel guilty? What would the boss think?
If appearances are the problem, schedule your 10 minutes of me time. Call it whatever you want if you fear others passing judgment. Just as with take-home pay you should pay yourself first before other expenses, you owe yourself — and those you care about — me time. It’s good for your psyche, will improve your frame of mind and — God forbid — even make you more productive.
