Everyone knows how important it is to have time to yourself. Whether you’re an extrovert and love being around people, an introvert and tend to keep to yourself or a combination of the two, personal time is good.
I like to describe myself as somewhere between an introvert and an extrovert. It all depends on my mood and how I’m feeling that day. Some days I prefer to stay in my room, light a candle and drink coffee. Some days I prefer to be out and about with my friends. It’s different every day!
On those introverted days when I need “Grace Time”, this is how my activities tend to go…
- I sleep in… No matter what, if I don’t have to work in the morning I am sleeping in. I value the days I don’t work so much more now than I used to (especially since waking up at 6am is hard!). These days I don’t set an alarm because I tend to naturally wake up by 10am.
- Coffee is a must… Since I began working 3 days a week and my mornings start at 6am, I can no longer function without coffee (whether I’m going out or not!). Sitting in my office and drinking my coffee while I write out my daily to-do list is the perfect way to wake up. Now, if it’s not a work day I make my coffee in one of my thousands of mugs and listen to some music to wake myself up for the day.
- Netflix and Write… When I’m alone and have the entire day to myself, writing definitely comes into play. I know shocking! Writing during the day varies from working on a blog post, writing in my journal and working on stories I’ve started. I have also been watching How I Met Your Mother for the second time. If you’re looking for a new show I definitely recommend it!!
- Longboarding… This one has to be one of my favorite activities to do! Whether I’m alone or with a group of people it doesn’t matter. However, popping in some earbuds and putting on my favorite playlist and boarding just me, myself and I have to be the best way to relax and clear my head.
I hope you all enjoyed the read! Although this is a short list, on those days I don’t usually do much besides that! Don’t forget to check back in!!
