As mothers who lead very busy lives, it’s important for us to have some time to ourselves, even if it’s just for a few minutes.
I know first hand what’s it like to not do so & become extremely overwhelmed as a result. I had to figure out ways to improve my balance as a mother, employee, and business owner. I’ve done so by doing research, reading books, and watching videos on YouTube to seek information. I’ve compiled a list of “must-dos” in order for you to find peace. Don’t just spend quality time & not utilize “the quiet” to your fullest advantage.
Here are 8 ways to spend quiet time!
Breathing Exercise– listening to yourself breath will help you to relax. That’s because you’re totally focused on nothing else but what your body is doing.
Clear your mind– Get rid of all the negative thoughts. Nothing will drive you more insane than over-thinking so much that you begin to worry about stuff that may not even exist.
Focus on the present– When we dwell on the past & focus too much on the future, we lose focus on what’s happening now. Focusing on the present allows you to move about your day with less pressure and become less uptight… a behavior you would otherwise internalize.
Write it Out– Writing out your thoughts is therapeutic. Keeping a diary or journal and writing your daily progress will help you keep track of what you should or should not do. That could help you be to move about your day more productively without being super stressed & fatigued.
Take a Walk– Walking helps to clear your mind as you take in your surroundings…which also helps you focus on the present.
Converse with God-Talking with God is the ultimate form of communication. God will help us solve problems, make solutions, and make better choices. We are all responsible for what happens in our lives, but HIS guidance assures us that he is love and LOVE is the only answer.
Meditate-Meditation takes skill but as long as you can train your mind and body to be still… this exercise can highly benefit you.
Read– Reading is something else you could do to train your mind to stay clear of negative thoughts.
