More time to think for you or your child

Posted by freeschool on January 11, 2008

Lifehack has a post today on “11 tips to carve out more time to think.”  I think this could be applied to those of us in the unschooling/homeschooling life.  The suggestion is to take just one hour of your week to focus entirely on thinking, without distractions.  The lack of distractions alone could be the most difficult part, but assuming you’ve managed to get past that…  here are some of the suggestions on making use of your thinking hour:

  • Think about what you want to write about.
  • Set goals for your thinking hour.
  • Write or type your thoughts.
  • Record yourself talking.
  • Go for a walk.
  • Mindstorm twenty ideas.
  • Meditate.
  • Explore your problems.
