I loved the idea of giving value to time and activities done alone: in fact, there are many things on that list that are done outdoors, and/or involve physical activity, or let you improve the state of your home, and so on. For the shy personality of mine, it is a gentler invitation to get out and move my body, without the implication that I must interact with people or exhaust myself – and most importantly, that time alone can be spent in many ways (more than those 50, for sure!), which include my current indoor favourites: decluttering my room and reading.
Long story short, today the sun was shining, so I picked up two items from that list:
- 42: Go to the park with some sandwiches, a picnic blanket and a good book
- 49: Take a photo to depict each hour of your day (I actually read it as: take a picture of the same place at one-hour intervals)
Out I went to the park nearby with my packed lunch (I had leftovers from yesterday’s pasta, and fresh fruits and vegs, so it was really quick to put together) and a book that I have to read for my Montessori diploma.
I ate, read, dozed, smiled to passers-by, and took three picture at one hour interval:
Then I left because it had become too warm and sunny, but it was a great time outside, relaxing and interesting 🙂
