Are You Getting Enough Me Time?

This past weekend, I did something that I haven’t done in months: have an entire day just to myself.

I actually had the whole weekend to myself while James was away for a friend’s bachelor party. I went out with friends on Friday night, but Saturday was all mine. No plans, no responsibilities (besides walking the dog) and no unnecessary pressures of FOMO. It was very unlike me, since I don’t usually like to be alone and I hate staying still. But it turns out that I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

I woke up on Sunday feeling extra recharged – ready to work out, get errands done and even meet a friend for brunch. Even that was delightfully slow by my standards. It made me realize how much I’ve been missing by not taking more moments to myself, for myself. Living in New York has definitely changed my weekend habits – if I’m not out exploring a new neighborhood, trying a new brunch spot or grabbing drinks with friends, then was it even a weekend at all?

Of course it is! I went into this past weekend thinking I would be lonely or bored, but I was wrong. Quality time to myself was just what the doctor ordered. I’m slowly starting to learn how to slow down – just from time to time.

    Ahh I seriously need a ‘me’ day – I’ve been in busy work mode lately because I just moved and work has gotten incredibly busy. Thanks for the reminder to take some time for myself!
    You dropwaist dress is seriously gorgeous! The print is so pretty!

    I honestly get a little anxious when I’m spending the entire day by myself — I like to spend time alone, but I’d prefer my roommate to be in the next room, rather than being alone entirely. I guess that’s the extrovert in me, haha! Love this dress too.
