"Me Time" Fix

Monday, October 15, 2012

Do you ever take time out to be totally and utterly alone? Recently, I overheard someone saying that her favourite time of the week is Tuesday afternoon as it’s the only time in the whole week when she can be by herself for an hour. I’ve never thought about it before but now I kind of want to try finding a little slice of time to just switch off from the outside world and be with my own thoughts just for a bit. I also read that 'me time' is really healthy and totally rejuvenating. The best part is it can be anything from a long bath, a cozy tea on a sofa, a slow stroll through your favourite park to even a quiet glass of wine on the balcony - just as long as you spend some quality moments with yourself.

Have you ever tried it? Do you schedule "me time" regularly? xo

P.S: Bed making = happiness.
P.P.S: Plus, the one piece of advice you wish you'd been given.

AS an introvert, I definitely like my "me time" but I never seem to schedule it regularly. I just take advantage whenever it happens. :-)

Its funny my me time is with other people because I am alone so much.
It re-energizes me to be with others after spending a day at home.
As a SAHM it is really important to get some me time and friend time.

I need for me time. It's indispensable for one's sanity. it's not selfish, it's love. Nice photos!

So spot on, Patricia - "It's indispensable for one's sanity. it's not selfish, it's love."

I tend to use driving time as me time! I love driving with the windows down, the radio blasting and just thinking!

Laura Bear said...

Yes!! I totally agree, it is SO important! I have had a lot of alone time during the day lately and it is sooo nice. Its like a reboot button for the rest of the day.

Me time is sooo necessary. This past weekend I had a whole day to myself, I can't tell you how much I cherished every moment of it. It's the Restart/Refresh button and every one should use it :)

I wrote about this a little while ago and determined that I'm 50/50. I need alone time and social time in my life. As I don't work in an office I'm able to get my alone time during the week. But sometimes it requires a further step and I turn off the internet connection so I'm truly quiet.

I truly need and enjoy spending time on my own, and as I live by myself is pretty easy for me now. I guess the challenge would be the moment I move in with my bf...I look forward to it, but I know that I'll have to make some adjustments :) XOXO

nancy said...

absolutely! I love the quiet morning moments spent wandering the yard with a coffee in my hand... that's when I breathe in the day and water my plants.

little t said...

Totally indulge in TOO MUCH me time!

Diana Mieczan said...

Maria, oh yes: "Restart/Refresh button" Spot on!

Diana Mieczan said...

Nancy, I simply adore your comment. Btw: I also find watering plants very relaxing.

Diana Mieczan said...

Elsa, you will love it and those adjustments will be totally worth it:)
