Life gets in the way all too often so I made a decision this weekend that every morning I am going to write down at least one thing I will do that day to make ME smile.
Something small, just something I can do for me instead of heading to bed every night feeling as though my feet haven’t touched the floor.
I thought I would share with you a little list of seven things I am looking forward to.
For a long time baths involved children, boatloads of toys and as much squirty foam soap as the bathroom would hold. Now though I love running a hot bath, switching the lights off and lighting some candles. Laying back and just doing nothing, NOT. A. THING, for as long as possible. The soaping and cleaning takes place in the five minutes before I get out of the bath. The rest is simply just quiet. Peace and Quiet!
Getting my nails done
It takes a good half hour or more if you go to a reputable salon. 30 minutes of sitting with someone else doing your nails. Bliss. With covid though everywhere has been closed and to be honest I have quite enjoyed not having to retype things five hundred times because my long nails catch different keys! Now though I need them back, I don’t feel dressed without them and short nails on me just make my hands look older.
This is something I really need to do more of. I have a mountain of books to get through but it is so much easier to go to bed and pop on the tv. Before you know it you are 3 series in and its 4am! I am going to start tonight, head to bed 30 minutes earlier, switch off my phone and just get stuck into a good book.
This has to be one of my favourite things to do. I love making shopping lists, lists of things I need or already have, things to do and places to go. Lists of what needs doing around the house. Not just lists though too, I love tick charts and rotas etc, give me a list of jobs that need doing and I would happily plough through as long as I can tick a box when I’m done!
Oh be still my heart! Please see the last post on my blog – here. Rearranging goodies and working out what I need, plus trawling round every TK Maxx in the world would be my ultimate relaxation. For now though I will just potter around the house finding the perfect place for all my pumpkins!
I hate the thought of buying a jigsaw from a charity shop and pieces being missing. So I have been going through all of my puzzles and doing them to work out which are missing pieces and which are still complete. Its been fun but also hard work as I am working on average a 1000 piece per two days. Only another 6 to get through though and then I am done. Jigsaws are all consuming at times so this switches off my brain and gives me a break from over thinking – that’s why I am including it in this list!
Definitely need to implement this one asap! Too many nights watching tv and messing around on my phone until the early hours. It needs to stop. I am going to switch off my phone when I head upstairs and make sure that I read for half an hour before 11pm. That is when I aim to at least have my head down at the latest! We shall see.
What do you do for your me time?
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
