I have a lot more free time on my hands these days. Here’s how I’ve been spending it.
With all the craziness going on due to the coronavirus pandemic, I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about what I’ve been focusing on, reading, watching, and doing during this time.
Right now, many of us have more free time than we’ve ever had. It can be good or bad, depending on how you use it.
As for what I’m watching, I’m not watching a whole lot of the news. I find it to be mentally draining and depressing. What I have been watching, however, is some good, old-fashioned reality TV. I’m a big “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” fan, so it wasn’t too hard for me to binge-watch “Love is Blind” on Netflix. I also just finished the fifth episode of “Tiger King,” which is amazing and totally worth the hype.
I’m reading a few books right now as well. The first is “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, and the second is “Open Book” by Jessica Simpson. I’ve been a fan of her for many years, back to the days when she had her own reality show “Newlyweds” with her now ex-husband Nick Lachey.
When I’m not reading or watching TV, I’m focusing on spending more time with my twin 10-year-olds. Being in this industry can make it challenging at times to be truly present when I’m with them. We’ve been spending a lot of quality time together and trying to savor this while realizing how quickly it can fly. We’re riding bikes, taking walks, playing games, and our whole family is becoming closer, including our dog Tulula.
These are unprecedented and difficult times, but if you do have your health and you’re stuck at home, take some time to appreciate the things that you have in the present moment. This has been tough for me because I’m always thinking of the future, but being present has allowed me to focus on the things in life that truly matter, and to be at peace with what I can control.
Let me know in the comments what you’re watching, reading, and doing while you’re at home. If you have any questions for me about real estate, feel free to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you.
