Am I the only one who thinks going to the bathroom alone counts as me time?
A few years ago, I started scheduling work appointments for myself to have time to think.
When someone would want that time I would simply say “oh I already have a commitment then, how about…” and then propose another time.
It. Felt. RADICAL.
If you think about it, we have 16 awake hours. That’s 960 minutes.
Could you give yourself 1% of that time today?
Carve out roughly 10 minutes to just sit and think. No phone, no tv, just think. Breathe.
If you have kids like me, maybe during nap time or snack time. Sometimes I just go sit in my car in the driveway. Sometimes they come pound on the windows and I have to try again later ☺️🤷🏻♀️
Just so you know: The quiet might get uncomfortable. Just try to notice it and say out loud “oh this feels uncomfortable”.
Stick with it as long as you can. It might just be a minute or two – that’s ok!
There’s a reason why we’re naturally afraid of silence. It’s where the truth is.
Whatever happens, I’m in your corner. And you are so, so, loved.
