My work time is an essential part of my life; however, time away from work is just as vital.

I take pride in my work. A part of what makes me proficient at my job is my activities away from work. Seeking out enjoyable or relaxing activities every day only serves to enhance my life, both at work and away.

My life is so much richer because of the activities I engage in outside of work.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My social activities refresh me. The time I spend pursuing hobbies and entertainment recharges me to be better in all areas of my life.

Equally important is the time I focus on relaxation. Having downtime to reflect, rest, and relax is essential to me as a person. I am a stronger and more focused person because I take the time to relax and enjoy all areas of my life.

Today I will make good use of every moment. Whether I am at work or at play, every minute is important to my life as a whole and I will focus on the moment I am in.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Have I taken the time to enjoy my free time activities?
2. Have I taken the time to relax?
3. How is my work improved when I take the time for play and relaxation?
