Leisure. Rest and relaxation. Recreation. Down time.
We often make a mistake when we think of play: When we envision play, we picture others.
Do you do so too?
It’s a trap. You’ll be much happier if you reserve a portion of your play time just for you.
Time to converse
You need some time to yourself. Just like any other relationship, you have to invest in your relationship with yourself.
You need to listen to yourself. You need to learn from yourself. You need to talk to yourself.
Not out loud. Unless you’re alone!
Time to refresh
You need time to refresh. Physically, of course. But you probably do okay with that one.
You need to make time to refresh your spirit. To feed your soul. And one way to do that is to spend some time alone.
Quietly. With just your thoughts.
Time to dream
To refect. And to dream. To envision BIGG success.
To live out in your mind what you will live out in real life. Because every victory is first won in the recesses of your mind.
And so, you need to make time for yourself. So you can tend to yourself. So you can refuel. So you can keep the flame burning.
Now, we know that this is a scary proposition to some people. But give it try.
It may seem strange at first. You may be uncomfortable. But most growth is uncomfortable.
In time, you will grow to appreciate this time. To treasure it, even.
Go someplace that inspires you. Get out in nature, if that’s your thing. We like to be near water.
It’s okay to be around other people. Just try to find a place where they’re not likely to be people you know.
Make time for you. Time to converse, to refresh, to dream. It leads to BIGG success!
Do you make time for yourself?
