Tunde Oyeneyin: “One of my favorite things to do in my downtime is cook! I keep go-to recipes—like this one—saved in my Pocket so I always have it on hand when I need it or when a friend is asking for a recommendation.”
I don’t always have as much downtime as I want, so I make sure to treat that precious time with the level of respect and boundaries I bring to the most important things on my calendar. To help keep me on track during this time—I’m sure I’m not the only one who spends too much “me time” doomscrolling and getting sucked into bad TV—I curated a round-up of fun and helpful linksin case you need a nudge to stay centered during your own downtime.
Consider this Pocket Collection a peek inside my me-time manual—helping me stay mindful when it doesn’t come naturally and make the most out of all the unhurried moments in between the busy ones. –Tunde Oyeneyin
TO: “I’m so inspired by the pieces of wisdom and powerful quotes I come across online. But often, when I run into one, I tell myself I’ll remember it and… don’t. That’s why I started saving them to my Pocket, to make sure I have a home for this kind of inspiration. This one in particular often reminds me to put myself first, which means to prioritize the time I take for myself. I need to always back myself, especially when my life is at its busiest.”
TO: “Eating out at new and delicious restaurants is one of my favorite things to do—both socially and alone. And to avoid the dreaded ‘I don’t know, where do you think we should go?’ conversation, I keep this roundup of restaurants saved in my Pocket. So convenient to have great options at my fingertips. It makes coordinating dinner plans in my borough that much easier.”
TO: “I find joy in the silly things that I come across on the Internet. That’s probably the part of social media I enjoy the most. This meme is one of many I have saved in my Pocket, it’s always ready for me to look back on when I need a laugh and/or want to share with friends who need a pick-me-up.”
TO: ”I travel a ton for work, but I really look forward to the travel I get to do for fun! Saving pieces about my upcoming trips helps build the excitement more—planning a trip is as good for the soul as traveling is and these types of articles I have saved make both of those experiences that much easier. Here is one article I found so helpful when planning my trip to Lisbon. Loved having it handy in my Pocket while traveling, and keeping saved for a potential trip in the future.”
