Things You Should Always Make Time For

Friday, October 06, 2017

Taking a trip to the library. There are a few things that can instantly put me in a good mood and one of those things is taking a trip to the library. I love the quiet, I love the book smell (anyone else?) and I love finding a book that can take me to anywhere I want to be.

Spending some time alone. I am one of those people who likes being alone in my house, but not out in public. I want to be one of those people is content to going to see a movie on her own, or to eat lunch out by herself but now that I've got a little one i'll probably have a life long partner for stuff like that ;) However you like to spend a little you time, you should absolutely make time for it. Alone time always helps me to reset and makes me that much more grateful for the time I spend with others.

Spending time without technology. When was the last time you went a full day without checking your email, or watching tv or sending a text message? Sometimes I find Daniel and I lying next to each other at the end of the day with both of our phone out when we could be talking to each other. Start small if you have time, try taking an hour to yourself without checking your phone. Add a little more time each day until you can go a full day without it.

Cleaning up your space. I'm the first to admit it, I don't love cleaning. I do however, love the feeling of a clean space. During the week when we are especially busy I try to clean up at least one thing each morning that way even if I get nothing else done the rest of the day I still feel like I accomplished something.

Trying new things. Count me in for trying all of the new foods, music, movies, etc. I am the first person to say yes to trying new things. I don't have a lot of fear when it comes to experiencing something at least once (I've even been skydiving and although I wouldn't do it again, I'm glad to say that I gave it a try). You may find your new favorite thing and that is so important.

Listening to others. True life: My husband and I do not agree on a lot of things going on in our world today. We see things from completely different perspectives and we have to try that much harder to make it a point to listen to one another as opposed to just fighting over our opinions. We learn a lot about each other when we make the conscious decision to listen first and that is so important for our relationship.

What do you make time for?
