Yes! You read that right – but I bet you are asking yourself “what downtime”? Well, if you are like me, you struggle to find downtime, but I have found a way to sneak it into my busy life!
So, picture this…….one day after school, the kids come home, have their typical snack and then everyone gets ready for their various activities. My son does Karate and my daughter is in musical theatre. We scheduled them so that I wasn’t going to be criss-crossing town on the same day for both children, BUT every once in a while things work out that way.
Last week, my son was sick on his regular Karate day, so he was going to take a makeup class on the same day that my daughter has her musical theatre classes. So, off we went on a cross-town adventure, dropping off, driving, dropping off, driving, picking up, driving, picking up driving with a small bit of downtime in between.
During that downtime, I was sitting in the car with nothing to do other than work (which I do enjoy), when it occurred to me that it would be a perfect time to take a few minutes and use Next Issue to catch up on some magazine reading.
