How changing how you spend your free time can genuinely make you feel like you have more of it and take care of your well-being.
I love this. You really do walk the talk, and I see it every day. I've been slowly gathering this wisdom through my observations over time but to read it here, well-articulated...welp, you've called me out. Thanks for the ongoing inspiration! For this week, my small adventure will be a trip to the library with my 3 year old. Our big adventure will be the DIY Escape Room I've had sitting in my back pocket.
You would likely enjoy "4000 Weeks - Time management for mortals". Read it twice last year and it's been helpful for me to have a better relationship with time and my to do list.
Emilie, I loved this post! Increasingly so, I've come to think of life through a lense of design - putting intentional thought into what my time is filled with. It makes you evaluate things in a fresh and creative lense, and your own argument around building adventure into our time off is so on point. Love it!
Love this so much!! And it’s like you took a peek inside my head; Jay and I have been having conversations about how to make more memories and “play” more instead of All Work All the Time. Intentionality is the key for sure.
This week’s adventures: a happy hour gathering with several fellow women-in-data friends, and tomorrow we are attending our local hockey team’s Where’s Waldo night, aiming to beat the world record for “Largest Gathering of People Dressed as Waldo”!
Thank you for the idea of planning one big and one small adventure every week. And I hope your little ones are both feeling much better now ❤️
