Just where does your time go? Each day we have a lot of activities vying for our attention: sleep, work, transportation, exercise, meal prep / clean-up, kid’s activities, and relaxation / socialization. Becoming aware of how you spend your time each day is essential to managing it and making sure you’re spending time on the things that really matter to you. The exercise of recording your activities for a few days may expose some interesting information.
Is your time spent on activities that are highly valuable to you or provide you with the greatest returns? If not, it may be time to re-evaluate. Say no to activities that aren’t important/interesting/rewarding. Learn to work smarter, not harder. Take time to plan, set goals, and prioritize activities.
Healthy habits take an investment of time and effort. Cleaning up your schedule will allow you to have the time you need to lead a healthy life.
