My husband and I nixed our cable box a little over a month ago - shocking, I know. How could one possibly live without Food Network and HGTV?! (Giada and Ina, I miss you so) It's been an adjustment, sure, and now that I've caught up on my Netflix queue I'm finding more time to read or even start organizing my material goods. We purchased an antenna, and we also have Hulu Plus and the hubs's XBOX, but I find usually there isn't really anything I want to watch on TV. I've tried to be more mindful of how I spend my minutes each day, although full disclosure we are kind of addicted to playing Fallout 4.
I suppose that's another big part of it, identifying what our body needs to nurture ourselves. For me, it's at least 7 hours of sleep, eating balanced healthy meals (more veggies, less carbs and meats, significantly less dairy and alcohol), and incorporating time for things that I enjoy doing, like exercise, reading, and writing in this blog.
We can make the time, we just have to be more mindful and strict with ourselves. Look at your weekly routine, maybe even just pick one day, and figure out when you could put in an extra 30 minutes devoted to doing something you love, something to nurture your self and your soul. And then do it! Hold yourself accountable. See if you can make it a regular habit, and reap those benefits gloriously.
