Everyone needs a little alone time once in awhile. Whether it’s for 5 minutes or 5 hours, any amount of quiet time is good for the body, mind and soul.
In the wise words of Theodore Roosevelt: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
The cliché, stop and smell the roses, didn’t become one because so many people were doing it. Rather so many people thought it good advice to share with others.
So the next time:
- You go to the store, instead of trying to find the closest parking spot, take one farther back and enjoy quiet time walking to the store.
- You have the choice between the elevator and the stairs, choose the latter. It will take longer, but the quiet time (not to mention the exercise) will do you good.
- You need to let the dog out, get out yourself and take him for a walk.
Time is going to tick down whether you’re enjoying it or not. So take the moments you can steal and spend them reflecting on your life and the lives around you. You’ll be glad you did.
