English term or phrase: You deserve 30 minutes to yourself
I am trying to get the correct expression for this. I am looking for a catchy and "advertising" way not a literal translation, that can be easily recognizable as a Swedish "saying". This will be used for a gym and needs to emphasize that it is good to spend time on yourself too, like a way to pamper and treat yourself. Is there a common saying to convey this in Swedish?

Explanation:
I think Annas suggestions are good, mine is just an alternative.

It reads "Devote half an hour to yourself"

I do however think that "halvtimme" (half an hour) looks a bit better in Swedish than 30 minutes.

"egentid" has become a common expression for time that you need/want to spend by yourself

Example sentence(s):
  • jag behöver lite egentid emellanåt för att orka med allt jobb

Explanation:
I prefer the word "egentid" as well, but think that "halvtimme" is better than 30 minutes.
