Prioritize yourself

If you don’t fill your time, someone else will. This old adage rings true far more than I’d like it to. That’s why it’s important to put ‘me’ time on your calendar. You have to prioritize yourself, otherwise someone else will find a way to prioritize you.

It may sound contradictory, but this is in an effort to better serve others. Only you know what you really need to do to do good work, only you know what you need to feel like to feel well rested. Having someone else schedule things in before you get the chance to, feels like you are being robbed of time. And you know what? You probably are.

Make sure you prioritize time for yourself, otherwise someone else will.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
