What is White Space?
What we need to be reinserted in our lives is the missing element of white space, which are brief stretches of unobstructed, unscheduled time that, when recaptured, change the very nature of how we work. White space is the interlude, strategic break, and oxygen that allows our ideas to catch fire. Simply put, white space is the time you dedicate daily to living intentionally and passionately. This simple concept can change your entire life if you’re willing to put in the work. So don’t wait. Start living intentionally today!
We all know the importance of having a moment to think, but do we ever take the time to really review what’s going on in our lives and why?
Juliet explains why reinserting “white space” is vital in our days. This is the time when we can breathe, contemplate, prepare, and create.
The name came from looking at the literal white spaces on a lightly scheduled paper calendar and discovering that those open blocks reveal how many opportunities that day could hold. To access it, you take a strategic pause. Stop what you are doing, and white space will rush in.
