When was the last time you went to the bathroom, closed the door, locked it, sat on the toilet and just… listened to yourself? HA! You probably thought I was going to say poop? No, I won’t be blogging about poop today. I’ll save that for another day when I have a brain fart and can’t think of anything else to talk about. :-)
ANYWHOOO!! When was the last time you got in a quiet place with no interruptions and spent some alone time alone with yourself, on purpose, with no cell phone or music playing in the background? In this day and age you probably don’t have time to sit still! I mean, there are people to see, posts to read, Vines to watch and statuses to like and people to unfollow! Are you kidding me? Who has time to sit in silence (I hope you can sense the sarcasm).
I know those are your thoughts and feelings, but let me tell you something HONEY BOO BOO CHILD! Taking the time to listen to yourself can be very beneficial.
How so CHERISE?
Glad you asked! Here are some benefits to spending some time alone with YOU!
1. You get a chance to clear your head.
Throughout the day you are bumping into and talking to annoying and rude people. You see crazy things on social media that affect your mood and your thinking and so you need to take a break to help release the crap you have been ingesting all day.
2. You get to know who you are.
I am always talking about you should get to know YOURSELF and figure out your likes and dislikes. What better way to do that than to spend some quality, uninterrupted time, with YOU! You can ask yourself questions to get to know the type of person you are because you are constantly changing!
AND 3. You can evaluate your life!
As you are sitting and having quiet time with yourself you can think about where you are in life, where you want to be in life and where you see yourself going in life! Create a 5 year plan and start to work towards it! If your life is crappy, you can flush the messy parts down the toilet and start fresh! You can get a new hobby, make new friends or create a vision board. You can make plans to have a fresh scented present and future that is not masked by a pleasant scent.
Do you get it? Do you see how important it is! I hope so!
Start now! Get to your bathroom a.k.a YOUR QUIET place and release that load… (LOL Sorry, I couldn't resist)
