How much time do you devote to living your ideal day, every day? Or even just one day a week?
Personally, I tend to get too easily swept along in other commitments, and just plain busy-ness. Especially on the weekends. Boo! So, I decided to try something different.
My Ideal Sunday Wish List:
~I’m adding in about 45 minutes of weight training
~Time to read
~A little prep and planning for the upcoming week
~And plenty of time to relax and snuggle my loves
~Oh, and puttering about the house, of course!
So, that’s what I’m going to do today.
Now, I realize that some things will come up that are worth passing on my ideal Sunday plans. That’s life, and here’s the gorgeous part: It’s also my choice! I think, when we start to take on too much, we’re giving up our power because to claim it would mean having to take responsibility -and probably also standing up for ourselves. I know, that can feel uncomfortable. But darlings, life needs to be a balance of busy and restful. And that’s really why I love hygge, it’s such a beautiful method of slowing down the crazy rush, and it reminds us to take time to just be.
Just be relaxed.
Just be happy.
Just be at peace.
I can’t tell you how important this is! There’s enough going on out there, and it can be hard to choose what makes the cut. Take the time to look over your schedule as it is, and then really think about what tickles your heart. Try and slide the things that tug at your heartstrings into that schedule of yours. Maybe it means dropping a couple of less important commitments in order to fit in working on your book, or to meet up with your dearest friends for a good meal and lively chat once a week. Make up your wish list, and then make it happen!
