20 things to do by yourself

We live in a society where it seems we're constantly surrounded by people. A little alone time is healthy. Here are a few ideas you can add to your arsenal.

BMA-173-1
  • Take a walk on the beach or around the block
  • Read a book
  • Watch a good movie
  • Go window shopping in a neighboring town
  • Do something artsy
  • Work in your garden
  • Make a succulent garden
  • Write a letter to someone you love
  • Plan a day trip and then do it
  • Have a spa day - get a mani and pedi and then get your hair done!
  • Make a list of things that make you happy
  • Write in your journal
  • Eat a piece of cheesecake!
  • Sit on your porch
  • Have a cup of tea or coffee
  • Read your favorite magazine
  • Walk a pretty path and gather some clippings for a table decoration
  • Sit in a coffee shop and people watch
  • Look through old photos
  • Sit in the sand or grass and listen to the sounds of nature

I hope you choose a few things from this list and actually do it! I'm going to pick something to do myself today! 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts ...

She is extraordinarily talented and has a beautiful heart as well.

Her ability to create elegant, serene imagery by marrying both feminine and rustic elements is truly a gift.
