There’s nothing better and relaxing like enjoying a few minutes just for ‘you’. There can be a lot of busy activities intertwined with chaos filling up our days, and when that happens it’s hard for us to hear ourselves breathe sometimes. That’s when a little ‘me time’ is most beneficial and rewarding.
How do you find your half-an-hour of peace?
I have started to set the alarm clock 1/2 hour earlier than my daughter’s wake up time, and that is a great way for me to start the day. It’s a lovely quiet time, so calming and peaceful. I make myself a cup of my morning tea – green usually (or I steep two tea bags into a large cup and have different blends, green with peppermint, green with cranberry…. it can get truly crazy ;) and I sit by my window, drinking my tea, savouring my morning. Just taking the moment in, breathing… sort of meditating.
Now, especially with the warmth of spring coming our way, it’s been truly blissful. These first warmer mornings, I open up the windows on my bay window, sit in my stylish rocker and invite the day. I relax, breathe and listen to the morning song of birds and nature.
So, do tell, my friends: How do you find more ‘me’ time?
