Christmas is a great time to catch up with family, but don't feel guilty if you need some me time over the festive period. Many of us love cycling as it is something that we can do that gives us the space for ourselves, some even call it their selfish time. I would disagree as we become happier, healthier and connect with others better as a result of having our me time.
'Me' time is important, it can benefit us with increased levels of productivity, happiness, gratitude and empathy.
Why does cycling provide is with our important me time?
You are working on your own fitness.
We are focused on own personal goals.
You are doing it because you want to, unless you are a professional cyclist, you are doing something to improve yourself beyond your professional life.
It is a destress, where you can disconnect from life's struggles.
You can gain a sense of control of your own challenges.
You can think about what you like when you are cycling.
You are focusing on something, just saying you want your 'me time' would not always work.
You can reflect on your day and be more focused when you are with your family
