Patagonia Sweater + Making Time for Yourself

How often are y’all able to get out in nature and take some time for yourself? For me, it’s not as big of a priority as I’d like it to be. It seems like when you’ve got a job, a social life, spin class, church, errands to run, and a family to care for, time just slips away! Even though I LOVE all those things and am thankful to have a busy life, I think it’s important to take time for yourself and enjoy the beauty of the world around us. (Sorry if I sound like a hippie haha.) With social media always hounding us to post more and get more likes, it can almost feel weird to go for a long hike and have no cell service (Heaven forbid!)

I do feel really lucky to be living in a time when we’re all constantly connected! It’s fun to be able to see what your friends are doing and to share your experiences with others. I know I’ve had a blast just getting to know other bloggers via Instagram!

As great as it is to be connected to so many people 24/7, I’m going to try to make it a priority to unplug for a short amount of time once a week! So, while it may not be your thing to go for a full day backcountry hike, I encourage you to step out your front door and take a walk around your neighborhood or local park with no cell phone. I think we tend to miss so many simple details in life because it’s easy to get distracted by our phones.

With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy? Oscar Wilde, Motivational quote

Side note: One of my cousins gave me this pullover, and it has definitely become a staple in my closet!  Patagonia really does make their clothes to last, so I don’t have to worry about this top pilling or unraveling, even after hundreds of wears. 

Hope y’all are having a wonderful Monday! Thanks for reading!

xoxo liz
