Pull out your calendar for July and scope out what’s happening.
Find a block of time: a whole weekend, a day, a half day, or an hour where you have nothing else planned. BLOCK IT OUT IN PEN as “MeTime”. Yes, use a pen to block out this time; make it permanent. If you’ve got strong Pitta in you (which might be a bit higher in the summer’s heat, but hopefully it’s not aggravated…that’s not a good thing), pick a color that represents your MeTime. Choose a color that is perfect for YOU and your time (yes, it’s allowed to change each month). This task is all about you.
Tricksy part: no one is allowed to infringe on your MeTime. It’s a date, an appointment…whatever you need to call it to make sure it’s real and un-infringable.
Now, your job is to choose something that sounds super fun to do during your block of time. Super fun to you. Not anyone else. Just you. Don’t bring anyone else along.
When the time comes: do it.
Here are five ideas to get your juices flowing:
–Go for a picnic, bring your sketchbook or journal
–Go see a movie you wouldn’t normally watch (movie theaters are usually air conditioned)
–Go out to dinner, or lunch, alone (Bonus: don’t use your phone or any other device or even read)
–Book an overnight at the beach
–Take a boat ride
It doesn’t have to be anything big. Just time for you and something you love.
