Alone time- what a beautiful time of day that is/or minute depending on your lifestyle. I always made time for myself which was easy when I wasn’t married and didn’t have a child. But now that my lifestyle has changed I need to be more creative when it comes to finding alone time because finding a quiet moment can be like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
The best time for me to find solitude is in the morning. I wake a couple of hours earlier than my family. And for the next two hours I am free.
I find having time for myself helps me start the day off on the right foot. As I am able to clear my mind and check in with myself. Next I stretch because there is always a spot where I am stiff and sore. Then I check my thoughts – am I starting the day off with gratitude? Or do I have anxiety and worry on my mind?
Some mornings I spend time cheering myself on, and if I’m not in a cheerful mood I listen to you tube videos on positive affirmations so I can shift my thoughts into positive ones. I find this is the easiest way to shift my energy from a low to high.
Be sure to be good to yourself today and find some time to sneak away from the madness. Check in with yourself – listen to your thoughts and make any necessary changes to make sure you are on the right path to serenity.
