5 WAYS TO WIND DOWN

I think introverts know this better than anyone, but "me-time" is a very treasured part of the day.
So here's five ways I like to chill out at the end of the day!

p.s. Q&A answers coming very soon! I'm giving a little more time to ask questions :)


1. LISTEN TO MUSIC
Okay, the secret's out, has been for awhile, I'm a music fanatic.
Whether it's in the car, in my room, and if I could still concentrate and not be tempted to belt it and tap my pencil to the beat, you can bet your bottom dollar I would listen to my favorite tunes while doing algebra. ;)
But, I also use it to wind down at the end of the day.
So put on a record. Break out your CD's. Play a playlist on Spotify.
Sit back, relax, and let it fill you!

2. MAKE A COMFY SPOT
Let's be real for a sec.
I sleep in the same room with my two little sisters, and the 2-year-old sleeps in my bed with me (which I LOVE), and it's a fairly shallow bunk-bed, so I can't necessarily sit and do things on my bed without waking them up!
So what I do is, I grab several pillows, some blankets, grab a candle and light it, grab some tea, and make me a cozy little spot on my floor!
Now for most, your bed works, but even still, I use this idea practically every night!

3. DIM THE LIGHTS
My friends and family think I'm crazy, but I hardly ever have my main (? don't know what else to call it, haha) light on.
I am rarely in my room unless it's at night, so I always just only have a lamp turned on.
Dim lights calm me.
I feel like it makes the room feel more cozy and inviting and ready to relax in!
Maybe it's just me, but this is a major thing that has to be done in my relaxing space!

4. JOURNAL/READ
Journaling is always an essential thing for me to do at night.
I love it. Whether my prayer journal or my personal one, it always relaxes me :)
And reading is literally amazing. I am a major bibliophile. It's so great. WAH.

5. PRAY
I have recently set a goal for myself to devote myself to prayer every night.
I guess you could call it a New Years resolution, but I didn't mean for it to be.
Not just "spit-prayers" as my dad calls it. I mean actual prayer.
So turn on some worship music and have a good conversation with the One who holds the very world in His hands. :)

So, I'll leave it to Lady Mary to bid farewell:

    One tip that I have grown to like is a hot drink and a good book, very comforting. :)

  2. I love this list! As a fellow introvert, I do many of these things when I need to "recharge".

  3. I AM VERY HAPPY AND GRATEFUL FOR THIS POST. ♥ You're so right on, introverts definitely value that "me-time." like, A LOT. I'm such a loner, it's nourishing to be by myself. LIKE I JUST LOVE IT, OKAY?? idk why. and I should totally just take your advice on everything because you're so smart and I'm also INFJ. xD

    SO ALL OF THESE POINTS ARE PERFECT. I'm getting all cozy just thinking about them and jeez I've just started my day here! xD Comfy spots + dim lights + CANDLES + music = omg pinterest is like suddenly real life. I WANT TO DO THISSSSS. All of this. right now.

    p.s. that is so freaking cute that you're little sis sleeps with you and that you share a room. I LOVE IT WHEN SIBS DO THAT BECAUSE IT'S TOO BEAUTIFUL TO MISS OUT ON. ^.^

    love,

      And I agree; alone time is so nourishing for me too.

      And haha, my older sister and I shared rooms for the majority of my childhood, and when she moved out I shared a room with my younger sister, and now share a room with two younger sisters!
