Now that I am out of college… I have noticed that I have to have time to myself in the morning in order to have a good day. For example, I have to wake up in the morning at the same time, make two cups of coffee and watch good morning america ( I dont have to be at work until 10). I get in the shower around 9 and leave around 9:40. If I have to do something different, I get aggravated. I know it sounds silly…. I just dont get another chance during the day to have time to myself. I am a college softball coach and I constantly have someone in my office or I am on the field. I am a super big people person, but I love my morning time alone to just enjoy myself and not have to worry about other people.
Do you have a time during the day that is your time? Or am I weird?

My “me” time is in my car on my drive to and from work. It’s enough for me. I enjoy the windy roads I get to drive on, so it puts a smile on my face.

I need “me” time. I get a little cranky when I don’t have it, too. Unfortunately, I don’t really have any “me” time built into my day right now. When it occurs, it’s so amazing!

My “me” time is the gym or running. My commute is on public transit so it’s a little hard to tune others out. At the gym, I don’t have my phone or anything accessible. So it helps me unplug.

I currently have loads of “me” time because I’m out of work with an injury….buttt, I had a long commute to/from work and that’s what I usually used as “me” time. I fatique very quickly if I don’t have a couple of nights a week where I can just veg (when I’m working)

@Gemstone: I’m with you.
I never have mornings in peace ever. Though I often have a nice bubble bath in the evening while Fiance watches his man shows and Kidlett is in bed, so that’s usually good enough for me!

yes, I have my “me” time twice a day usually. Coffee in the morning, and a glass of wine and chit chat with a friend or online crossword in the afternoon. It keeps me refreshed.

I also need my me time!
Right now my “me” time is when I go to the gym. I watch tv and try to zone out. I’m new to the area so I don’t know anyone at my gym yet, which is great because I have no interuptions.
During the weekends I try to get up early than my Fiance so I can catch up on my girly shows and drink my coffee. That is my favorite 🙂

My “me” time is when I’m getting ready after my shower. I need to just be alone while I do my makeup and hair, then I’m good to go.

Sometimes I sit and read while my Darling Husband plays video games next to me. We’re not really interacting, so I guess that’s “me” time lol? I don’t really need alone time away from my husband, but I definitely get worn out after spending a whole day with a group of people and want to just get home.

On normal work days, I get home about an hour before Darling Husband. I love that little bit of time at home alone to do what I want.

I actually wish I had less me time. My SO works 4pm to midnight Monday through Friday so I’m alone after work. It gets lonely.

I lived alone for 17 years before husband (then BF) moved in with me about a year and a half ago. It was a huge adjustment to go from being alone almost every night, to NEVER being alone! Just in the last 2-3 months I realized how much I missed it, so I started taking a bath before bed every night… and I just love having a little bit of my own routine back.
