Why Me-Time Matters

Tips for making a little me-time

Digi detox for 24 hours

Always being connected can make it difficult to create boundaries between your home life and work life.  A 24-hour digital detox can help you establish a healthier balance and allow more time for yourself.

Random acts of kindness

Being kind can go a long way toward improving your emotional wellbeing and is the perfect way to make the most of your me-time. A 2019 study in The Journal of Social Psychology found that people who performed kindness activities for seven days saw a boost in happiness.

Read a book with a cup of Moccona

Reading books benefits both your physical and mental health, and those benefits can last a lifetime – frequent brain exercise has been proven to lower mental decline by 32%.

Go for a relaxing walk, jog or run

Spend your me-time doing physical activity that you actually enjoy and makes you feel good – whether it’s a walk, run, yoga or weights – find something that works for you.

Write a thank you card

Research suggests that even months after writing a simple thank you card (or text), people’s brains are still wired to feel extra thankful. The more you practice gratitude, the more attuned you are to it and the more you can enjoy its psychological benefits.

Do a simple meditation exercise

Practicing mindfulness consistently can change the way you think, feel, and act—because it can literally change your brain. Whether it’s doing simple breathing exercises, mindful activity or signing up to a mediation app, try it next time you’re looking to dedicate some time for yourself.

Inspire Your Me-Time

Everyone’s favourite way to spend their me-time is different. It might be breathing in fresh mountain air, indulging in good food & wine, or watching an early morning sunrise over the ocean. That's why we've curated the 3 Ultimate Me-Time experiences below, which one lucky coffee lover can choose from if they win our Me-Time competition. So take a moment to indulge in a little me-time holiday inspiration over your favourite cup of Moccona!
