So when I was in Sedona, Arizona I realized I had needed to have more alone time, aka me time.
Like, time by myself without anyone, kinda me time.
I couldn’t remember the last time I had had time by self.
So I decided to make a list of ways I like to spend time alone ( weird, but sometimes a visual works for me ):
1.) Go outside: this includes taking a walk, listening to a podcast ( latest favorite: Serial ), walking the dogs, going for a run, &/or working out outside. I also love going to the Farmer’s Market & picking out some flowers. Flowers make me happy! Putting flowers around the house & kind of designing them all pretty is another fun alone time hobby.
2.) Enjoy dessert: ALONE! Sometimes it’s nice to have a sweet treat like a piece of dark chocolate. I had some leftovers from my Galentine’s Party so I totally dipped in to my dessert fund & chilled out on the couch, watched some “Real Housewives,” & enjoyed a Skinny Cow chocolate dipped ice cream bar in vanilla almond crunch ( thank God for the nuts x chocolate! ).
3.) Light a candle: along with dessert, I like to light a candle, turn on music, grab a sweet treat, & chill out. Usually this will include a book & some Brazilian music. Reading is one of my favorite things in the world to do. Hanging out with my puppies while I read, with a little music, a little chocolate (my current fave is the Skinny Cow ‘blissful truffle’), & a candle is HEAVEN.
4.) Go to a restaurant: ALONE! LOL. YESSSS. The other day I grabbed an iced coffee & headed to True Foods for a little kale salad, street tacos, & computer time! Nothing like eating alone at a restaurant : ). My favorite thing ever. Sometimes I’ll even play a card game like Solitaire by myself too!
5.) Drink a cup of coffee & CHILLLLL: I loveeeee enjoying a cup of coffee ( with extra cinnamon please! ) by myself. There’s nothing better than sitting in peace with a delicious iced cup of coffee. Right now I’m sipping on Skinny Cow mocha latte creamy iced coffee. If anyone comes near my bubble when I’m relaxing with my coffee, I’m kind of a grouch.
How do you like to spend time alone?
