Am I the only one who needs five minutes (sometimes an hour) to myself everyday?
Before the pandemic started I always took a five minute break every hour to be with myself. And although I love being around people, I also love my moments of solitude. Here is a list of things that I do during my five minute break.
Music helps with my mood swings throughout the day, so I try to listen to artists that uplift my spirits. I have been listening to some of my favorite Indie Artists Quiana Major and Frankie Midnight, you can listen to their music on Bandcamp and Spotify.
Drinking hot tea has a way of calming me down in moments of anxiety and confusion. I am all about: Lipton Black Tea, Earl Gray, and Oolong, with a drop of honey from the local bee farm Honi Lifestyle.
Some of my favorite kinds of books are spiritual self growth books, photography books, and poetry books. Currently I am reading Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch and A Beautiful Ghetto by Devin Allen.
I love painting my nails y'all, it is very therapeutic for me. I used to go to the salon and get them done (full set or gel), but now I look forward to doing my own. I have the opportunity to change the color once a week, moisturize my nails with jojoba oil, and shape them the way I want. Lately I have been using OPI Infinite Shine nail polish purchased on Amazon Prime.
“Take me to the water, love.” This is what I tell my boyfriend all the time and he knows exactly what I mean. He knows that I need to clear my mind and and sit by a body of water (ocean, lake, pool, pound).
