Movin’ Together – Take a Time-Out!

Ladies, take time for a break - or invest in a suit of armor!


by Sara Vogt - November 3, 2016

time out \ˈtīm-ˈau̇t\ noun
1: time for rest or recreation away from one’s usual work or studies: she is
taking time out from her hectic tour.

The first definition for the expression “time out” is exactly what we are discussing for our healthy tool basket on Movin’ Together. Our desire for this feature is to encourage women of all ages to step back, and as the expression goes, ‘take time to smell the roses.’
Are you one of those women who feel overwhelmed? Are you wondering how you will be able to take a time out? I know from personal experience that we, as women, never seem to have the time to get it ALL done. Take housework for example; ok, that is a story for another day.

Today’s video features three situations in my life that show how important time outs can be to help us re-focus.

As women, we typically care for our family, friends and work associates and sometimes neglect taking time to be refreshed and renewed, ourselves. It is also very difficult to say no, as many of us usually want to help others when a need arises. But we can only be at our best for others if we take the time to nurture us as well. How do we do that?
I know that the “me time” that we are looking for will differ for each of us. Maybe your alone time is spent reading a good book or riding through the beautiful mountains of PA. “Time out,” as one of our tools in our healthy tool basket, needs the loving attention of being scheduled for it to happen.

I started taking a consistent “time out” two years ago by getting pedicures and manicures at Jeanette’s Hair Care with Kim Hazlett. At first, I felt guilty for having such a relaxing time being pampered because I had not done this previously. Now, I am so blessed to go about once a month, as Kim continues to teach me how to care for my hands and nails. She has shown me that my hands are an extension of myself, and I need to treat them gently. Unlike how I had been treating them in the past – like another tool.
“There are tools to use to protect your hands,” she reminds me.
Some of her recommendations are to use the pads of your fingers (instead of your nails) to push and pull things, and to wear gloves when doing dishes, housework and garden work.
“If I could pick two things to do everyday,” Kim continues, “I would shape the nail and use cuticle oil.”

Kim’s calm, gentle approach with manicures and pedicures is an absolute pleasure! Do you need a professional like Kim to help you re-claim your hands? Call Jeannette’s Hair Care and make your “time out” happen!

So far in our healthy tool basket we have:
1. Water for hydration
2. Jump start your day/breakfast
3. Good shoes/stretching
4. Rail trail adventure/healthy snacks
5. Protecting your skin/cleanse and moisturize
6. The importance of sleep
7. And today, our tools for time out: a nail file and cuticle cream
8. Next time on Movin’ Together: a journal of thanks (with a special guest).
