There are only 24 hours in a day, 8 or more are spent at work, the next 5 to 6 hours are spent with family or with yourself. If you have school after work then you have less time to go around as your days speed through in a slow pace, because you are waiting for the year to be over so you can finish and graduate.
The next 6 to 8 hours are spent sleeping, well at least you hope. Then there is the morning where you may have 2 hours or less for your self as you get ready to go to work. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time to do much.
If you find yourself needing more time, I have good and bad news. You’re not going to get more than 24 hours, but you can play with the remaining hours you do have for yourself.
Write down what you do during the hours you have free, make a plan to give yourself at least an hour of no computer and no social media. Fill your extra time with things you really enjoy, like a good book, drinking a cup of coffee or writing a story, listening to music and dancing in your room. What ever you do, enjoy the little time you have left in a day as you should enjoy living the remaining years of your life. Have a great week.
My peaceful place is always near a body of water. The images in this post were taken today. Living in Vegas for over 4 years now, I try to give myself a retreat as often as possible. I’m am thankful that I have a understanding family that supports my needs for time alone.
The ocean has always been my place to seek peace and refuge when I need some time to think and explore creativity, when I lived in Southern California i would seek to be near it, even for a moment or two.
It’s very important to give yourself some time alone. You don’t have to take trips, or travel anywhere. Your solitude can come in the form of reading a good book in your room. Taking a stroll at your favorite park or retreats in a nice warm bath.
It also could be building wood furniture out in your garage, or knitting something for a loved one, watching a movie or taking a class. Your peaceful place can be anything and anywhere, it’s up to you!
When you need some time for yourself, where do you go? Where is at peace place? How has taking time for yourself helped you?
