Studio: Quiet Time

Get a puppy and all of a sudden you have to be structured, consistent, and purposeful. I knew I needed a puppy because I wasn’t using my downtime well, even though I planned my days around going to the office.

But now I’m forced to utilize my moments of quiet effectively. After getting up in the morning and meeting my puppy’s needs, I come up to my ‘studio,’ my hideout to practice yoga exercises, pray and read the scriptures, journal or blog, read good books, drink my tea. I have a tendency to be whimsical and random in my thinking, so it can be difficult for me to stay on one task and complete it. I use this space for solitude and for projects, and I try to make the most of the downtime that I get.

Kind of like having kids. Except I have two furry ones.
