If you could add an extra day to the week, how would you spend it?
I saw this question in the current issue of Real Simple magazine. This is extraordinarily fun to think about! I’d also add, where would you insert the extra day?
My extra day would come between Saturday and Sunday. That way I could still fill up my weekends without having to worry about including “down time.” My extra day would consist of a mind, body and soul rejuvenation day. It would look something like this:
7am – 3pm
No to phone, iPad, or computer. Yes to cardio (Pilates workout, thorough stretching class), healthy lunch by myself with a good book. Some sort of fun dance class. Then massage and mani/pedi (possibly a facial, but I get antsy laying around that long).
4pm – 6pm
After that a nice long walk by the beach and early dinner which includes a crisp salad and lobster. Still no electronics, but add in my husband, Bobby Field. ❤️
At home, bath, jammies and glass of wine.
Turn on my phone for the first time and check out what I need to prepare for the next day.
Shut down, lights out.
Your turn. First, where to insert this extra day? Just thinking about this extra day made me more relaxed. Maybe I don’t need an extra day. Maybe I should just take one of my 7 days I already have and choose to live those hours differently—especially the unplugged part. Hmmmmm… now THAT’s a novel idea. ?
