Firstly, I’m a massive fan of Shaun T. His workouts are amazing but what I really love about him is his positive, inspiring outlook. It’s such a nice change to see such powerful and positive messages being shared.

And his last one is about being selfish. When he says this he means be selfish by taking time, just 5 minutes a day if that’s all you can manage, and think about YOU. What you want to accomplish, what you need, what you want, anything. Do it for yourself and no one else.

Being selfish in this way allows us in return to be more respectful to others and ourselves.

This is a powerful message and one many people forget during their days filled with work, children, errands, whatever you have in your life that distracts you from being your best self.

So this is me spending my 5 minutes here, to share this message with you and think about what I need to do today to make it the best today I can.

I am not going to stress out about work, I will handle things one at a time, knowing they are done well rather than fast.

I will exercise tonight and share some of that time with Hubby. I love that we are both making an effort to be healthier and can share this.

I don’t need to have a big list to make my day great, I just need to take care of what I can and the rest can wait.

So be selfish, take 5 minutes and put yourself first!
