    I take my quiet time in the morning. It's so nice to just sit down, take a breather open my bible and listen. It helps me through the day. Although it's harder and harder to fit it in. I keep trying,

    I Have to Have It!

    I use it to renew myself. I do a devotion everyday and I talk to and listen to God. I read His word. I listen to music. I exercise. I have 4 children who are all grown and away from home (this makes me sad if I let it). I remember when they were all at home, I often asked for 1...

    Inside My Head

    I find myself unable to do normal things and multitask unless I have quiet during the day.  I don't turn the TV on until Dr. Phil if then.  If someone is here I can't even keep my mind on going to get or do something in the next room and it makes me feel very...

    My Sanity

    For the sake of my sanity, I need quiet time. I need a moment where I can lock myself away and either get lost in my thoughts or write them out. Or for the simplicity of just having a moment of peace all for myself. I'll admit, I can be very selfish when it comes to making sure I...

    Get So Little These Days

     I pretty much stay in the office all day and then make my congested commute home to an apt that I moved into under false pretenses and I just feel like I don't get enough private time. I desperately need it. I don't like wishing the day will end, or the week, because I am...

    Quiet Time, I Do Love It.

    For me, its more than quiet time.  I like being alone, to a degree.  Just being around people for long periods of time, it drains me and I get grumpy and just want to get away.

    Morning Routine...

    After a very long time of having bad mornings turn into bad days, I finally realized that what I was missing was my quiet time. When I'm just waking up, I'm not really crabby, per se...I just don't deal well with much stimulation. Noise, lights, whatever...I hate it. Being under...

    I like to have my time for everything, but you also could say that I am really lazy... I don't like to be stressed

    Bc my bf's family doesn't believe in being

    quiet, keeping it down, or being considerate when people aren't feeling good or sleeping. Ugh, can't wait to move! Silence should be appreciated way more than it does!

    My Morning.

    There is nothing better then being the first to wake up get the first cup of coffee and sit outside with the dog. No one else is around just me and my quiet time.

    The Morning Quiet

    I love waking up very early in the mornings when everyone else is asleep.  It's so peaceful!  It allows me time to fully wake up before having to deal with people and life in general.

    I look forward to my Saturdays.

    it's my one day a week I can relax. With my relaxation, I enjoy quiet time alone with a few books.

    If I Don't Get It, Watch Out!

    I have to have my quiet time, every day. Being around too many people drains my energy, and I start getting cranky. I just need some time to myself, time to wind down, listen to some music, put the day behind me, then I'm fine. If I'm forced to constantly be around people and...

    Sometimes I just wanted to sit on my balcony

    with windows opened, having some cups of coffee, a book to read, a pillow on my back, headphones with calm music, phones are turned off, lights are turned off.... Damn I love that feeling

    I love being alone. I can spend a lot of time alone without feeling lonely. Sometimes I come home from work and my kids and husband bombard me with talk. They all want to share their day with me, I know, but I would just like quiet for a minute! My head spins from all the talk...

    Never Enough...

    There never seems to be enough quiet time. I'm either at work, on the phone, or with my boys. Starting next week I will have more quiet time though. My boys are going to stay with their mom for the rest of the summer.

    Just to be by myself and have time to refresh my batteries. Yes, even I need to recharge sometimes!! Then I'm up and out of the door to annoy people stuck in traffic, by sailing past on a bike!! I get a couple of horns for that!!

    My Quiet Time...

    Between 5:00am and 6:30am is bliss.  The house is quiet.  My family is asleep.  Time for me and me alone.  I can sit and do nothing, I can read, I can go for a walk, I can quietly reflect, or maybe I can share an experience on EP:)  Quiet time is such a...
