SLOW, EASY MORNINGS.
I want to remember the easiness that comes with summer. How time seems to slow down and the days become a blur. For nine months out of the year, my life is a blur itself. Waking up, going to work, and then heading off to sleep before I fall asleep watching TV (I do make time for eating and showers, just so you don't think I'm totally crazy).
But then June hits and my mind slows down.
Mornings are slower. I still wake up to my dog but I don't have to get out of bed by the time my alarm goes off. I can hang out in bed, watching Youtube videos or scrolling through Instagram without having to worry about being late and missing my bathroom slot (you, too, would need them if you have two sisters in the house!).
It's nice when the hardest part of your day is making it through a workout. It's a luxury, really. And I love that summertime allows me to make myself a priority.
And then I'm able to take a shower, get some chores or errands done, do some reading/writing, and maybe even binge watch some TV, too. But it only comes after my slow mornings.
Yep, slow mornings are where it's at. And I hope that this post reminds me come September that slow mornings are needed every now and then.
Because without them, time would fly by way too quickly.
How do YOU make time for slow mornings/afternoons/evenings?
