People are constantly pointing out to me that I don’t have a lot of free time. I suppose they’re right, but I keep busy because I genuinely enjoy being busy. I don’t do well sitting on the couch for hours. It makes me antsy.
But it does bring up the most excellent point that “free” time usually translates to “me” time. So being busy every night means that I don’t take time to relax, and everyone needs to relax. That’s just a fact.
Since I’m the queen of planning (I once put “be spontaneous” on a to-do list – I wish I was kidding), I decided to build Relaxation Time into my schedule. And, in an effort to make sure I don’t fill that time with other things, I created a sure-fire Relaxation Scheme.
I created 12 envelopes with 12 Be Nice To Kaitlin tasks and scattered them throughout my calendar. If it’s on my calendar, I can’t skip it, right?
Yes, I still use a paper calendar. What can I say, I don’t trust technology. Also, it’s difficult to tape an invitation or pair of tickets to my iPhone.
