“Me time? What’s that? I usually try to get up early so I can listen to music and prepare for my day. I always take one evening a week no matter what to go Latin dancing. It relieves my stress and I feel free for a while; the exercise doesn’t hurt either. The point is I schedule my work day so I schedule my me time too. All work and no play makes me…. Well…not a nice lady.”
