Prompt: How do you spend your alone time?
I am a single mama with a full-time job and two munchkins to care for. I tend to be wary of other people, so hiring a sitter only happens when something is a BIG deal. I don’t get a whole lot of alone time.
I go to the gym most days to get away from everything. I don’t have much time there, but it keeps me sane. And then every other weekend, my kids see their dad from Friday night to Sunday afternoon/evening. That is when I have an opportunity to experience glorious solitude. Oh, and I bask in it!
I enjoy being able to have grown up time with friends, but I always like to schedule one of those days just for me. I wear comfy clothes and I enjoy being alone. I love ensuring that the house is completely silent for a bit. No music, no audio book, no kids, no phone. Just me.
I might take a nap (and typically do) or a bubble bath. I usually read something. Sometimes I will paint, clean or write. Occasionally, I will binge on movies, or a show. I also like to go for walks/runs when it’s nice outside. Sometimes I will just lay in the grass and look at the sky. Other times I will spend time working on goals and plans, although I have a day set aside for that every week. Sometimes I will work on a new furniture design that I think would be cool.
Basically, how I spend my alone time is however I want. 🙂 And I do so enjoy it.
What do you do with your alone time?
