After spending $$$ for months and months on needed physical therapy I decided I could afford a little more self-care activities.
I enjoy a monthly massage (she gives me a good rate because I committed to the monthly visits)
I get a manicure or pedicure whenever I want.
I paid for a personal trainer for six months to get into better shape to Prevent future injuries.
But my favorite is to just walk away from my to-dos and just go for a walk, or out for coffee, or to the library, or to the beach, or out to lunch.

I'm trying to come up with some good ideas for "me" time each day. I thought I was doing that, but really I was just knocking things I had to do--for me--off my to do list. It was a chore, or a ritual I had to take care of (or try to establish as a good habit).

After reading up a bit on "me" time, I realized that I need to count and find those things that I can do for a little while that could be on my to-do list, but that I get a good burst of energy and fun from or enjoy for what they are, even if I have to get them done. I haven't gotten to that point in much of anything yet, even music practice, because this depressive funk's been hanging on.

So I became curious what you guys might consider "me" time and how you let yourselves enjoy it. I'm trying to get over that niggling feeling that I'm wasting time (even though when I'm depressed, wasting time is about all I do).

So, what do you consider good "me" time and why?
