When you’re by yourself what do you think you should be doing? Lot’s of things, right? We all think oooohh, I have five minutes, maybe ten.
I’ll do something I want to do.
But here’s the thing, we almost never do. We distract ourselves with YouTube or Instagram or simply thinking about what we should be doing.
Instead, why not prepare yourself for those unexpected bits of time. Keep a notepad and pencil. Or have a few sheets of paper handily nearby so you can draw.
Imagine what a quick sketch session will do for your mind.
When your by yourself, anything can happen. But instead of falling into moments of confusion and delay, make something of those treasured minutes.
