Down time is time you are literally stood or sat around doing nothing. Usually waiting for someone or something
Waiting in the car when picking someone up
Sat in a waiting room
Stood in a queue
That type of thing.
Notice how often this happens and seeing you can use the time productively.
Waiting times can be spent
Whilst driving. – Listening to audios. Download a podcast or even listen to calming music compared to stressful news bulletins and traffic updates
Waiting rooms – have a book with you whether it be fiction or educational. Reading will take your mind of everyday nonsense and if you spot a good article in a waiting room magazine or a recipe take a photo for future reference! If you don’t document it, it will leave your mind forever.
Planning – plan your week. Make lists of things you need to do and get the clutter out of your mind and on to paper.
