    Great post! It’s really made me think about how I spend my time, I feel like in either working or blogging which I do love but it is always nice to try to stick to other hobbies. I’m definitely going to try to manage my time better and leave time for just me x

      I’m exactly the same! Lately I’ve dedicated more time away from the screen and it’s felt incredible, thanks for reading! x

    Such a positive post! Now I will definitely be using this list as a reminder to make time for myself and what I love! Thank you

      Ah so am I. I’m trying to spend more time away from the screen though which has helped a lot in terms of dedicating more time to other hobbies! x

    BEAUTIFUL point Evie! Yesterday, I turned off the internet and pulled out a book I purchased two years ago and it was so refreshing to take some time to read. Lately, I’ve been doing so much for others I barely make time for myself, which leaves me feeling worn out. Like you suggested, I’m going to make a list of priorities and squeeze some happy time in for me too❤️

      That’s amazing to hear! I hope you manage to dedicate more time to yourself, me-time is so important! Thanks for reading x

        It sure is! Since you’re post, I managed to invest in some expensive skincare which makes me feel extra special for spending a little something extra on myself???

    Yess I’m a big believer of making time for your priorities instead of hoping for the perfect time to pop up! A few months ago I read about an interesting exercise to align your true priorities and your time priorities. The idea is to make a 5-item list of your true priorities, and a 5-item list of your time priorities (what you actually spend most of your time on). If the two lists are misaligned, I think it’s a great wake-up call. There’s no way to dispute it; it’s right there on the lists! Then, you start making changes to get your time priorities closer to your true priorities 🙂 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      Oh that sounds like such a useful exercise, I’ll need to give it a go! While I feel like I do spend my time productively, whether or not I’m spending it on my priorities is a different matter. Haha hopefully I’ll find a perfect balance one day!

      I love doing that! I always listen to podcasts while cooking, two of my favourite things combined!

      That’s so great to hear, it’s so important to carve out time for the things you love! Thanks for reading x

    This is a timely article for me. For the last 8 years, I have worked in technology & I have a well-rounded and in-depth skill set. Recently I left that industry and moved into the editing. About four months into that, however, I ended up in a situation where I am creating websites for a group that is involved in marketing for indie authors which is my target market for editing.
    I am working on four websites in fact and they fall within the scope of what you talked about in your experience above. I have always been the type of person you described, and could not be any other way, I would get too bored with life. I could not imagine being the type of person that became content in mediocrity.

    Thank you for your sharing. I am worried that I lack creative ideas. It is your article that makes me full of hope. Thank you. But, I have a question, can you help me?
