I recently wrote this post which discussed what “me time” means and with the help of some lovely fellow bloggers, it become clear “me time” can mean a vast array of things to different people. Which in itself celebrate the diversity the is among us. In this instalment I look it it from the point of view of activities as in what kind of activities make up “me time”. Again im thrilled to have input here from lots of fellow bloggers. First up – for myself, its an easy one – me time is getting out and going for a long run or a pilates class. I love the sense of escapism both of these activities provide.
I’m not alone in pounding the payment for some “me time” Natalie from Plutonium Sox Leyla from Motherhood Diaries and Lucy from Momma Mack also love it as their “me time”.
Gaming/ Online/ TV
I’m guilty myself of getting lost in social media while supposed to be taking time out! However for Sarah Mummy Cat Notes and Pete from Household Money Saving its gaming such as on the playstation that works for them for others its online gaming such as bingo. In addition taking time to watch that rom com of soap can often give me that much needed switch off time. I do try not to look at social media in bed however im not always dedicated enough to put that phone or tablet away!
Sometimes we can take the simply things in life for granted and it can often be five minutes spent doing an every day task in peace that makes the ideal “me time” for example reading a book, watching TV interrupted or even cooking! For some of my fellow blogger – the blog itself can be a form of espcapeism doing what they enjoy.
Across both posts is abundantly clear that me time can mean so many different things but I think the most important thing is to know what your own “me time” is.
