How to Microdose Your 'Me Time'

How to Microdose Your 'Me Time'

When you're overloaded with work/parenting/caring/domestic admin/stuff to faff around with on your phone, it's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that every second is accounted for.

  • Spending time doing whatever you want will help you get everything else done; that it's not selfish, but actually practical.
  • Set aside 20 minutes each morning for yourself.

Try to do nothing. It is rewarding, to just do nothing for a short while at least.

  • Taking care of mental health can improve time management and improve your mental health, a two-way street.

Treat Time Like Cash, Not Credit

  • When you have cash in your hand, you can count it, it's quantifiable. But you can't see or feel time, or put a real value on it.
  • Because time is invisible, we have a hard time accounting for it. We always think there's going to be more time in the future, but there isn't.
  • If it's something that you enjoy, it is time well spent

Solitude: Be In Aloneness

Solitude: Be In Aloneness

  • Solitude is a lovely word. It means being alone but not lonely.
  • Simple things like listening to music or looking at art can be just as important as meditation.
  • Some people find solitude very rewarding and enjoyable, while others are not looking for it.
  • Don't be alone, just be in a positive aloneness for a while and see how a blossoming happens.
