It would be an understatement to say that I miss my ‘me-time’. I have always, always enjoyed my ‘me-time’, even before I had a husband and two kids. It’s not that I think that I need me-time. I know that I need some time all to myself every day to reflect and refresh. It is essential for my sanity and well-being.
What do I do during this said ‘Me-time’
That’s top secret. But since you are eagerly waiting I will let you in on a few things I do when I am alone.
I think. I like to think, a lot.
I like to converse with Nature. I know, it sounds pretentious. But we do have an invisible connection, me and Nature.
I love to sip my tea with no distractions, savoring till the last drop. 🙂
I write, of course.
Sometimes I spend my alone time by cleaning the house. When I choose to do the cleaning it does not feel like a chore, rather it helps me calm down.
I do yoga or pilates. I love to do the stretches as it helps in getting rid of the aches. Doing Yoga with no distraction or interruption is a privilege as far as I am concerned.
I read too. The many blogs and news articles and yes, a book, at least a page a day. It isn’t much, but that works fine for now.
But, with a 12-month-old around 24/7, I hardly get any me-time now. So, how do I squeeze in the alone time?
I go for a walk with my baby in the stroller.
Most of the time my baby falls asleep toward the end of the walk. I think mindlessly, enjoy the nature, and I think of some blog post ideas. Plus, I am getting my workout for the day. Of course, chores are waiting to be taken care of, readings are only half done and million other things are always there to tend to. But for now, I do away with what I can.
Of course, nagging always work to get the husband and kids out of the house accomplishing a complete me-time.
