White Space

#104: Finding White Space

White Space

White Space. They are moments, minutes, or hours of unscheduled time when you stop doing stuff and simply experience life as in real time.

One of the benefits of getting older is being able to predict on Monday morning how I’m likely to feel by Friday afternoon. This crystal ball shows up as my color-coded weekly calendar. The more color on my spreadsheet, the more I need to pay attention.

Here’s why:

  • A loaded calendar means more activity and the need to be vigilant about self-care.
  • Less color on the page means more white space.
  • More white space means more clarity, peace and even joy.

I live for white space.

Discover the joy of lingering, how to schedule empty pockets of time and how to sneak moments of white space.
