Time Management

Time management is a skill.

Time….. if we could buy more of it we would. Days seem to fly by with work, family and house hold chores. We all prioritise our time differently, whatever is lowest on our list of priorities often gets left behind. For some that might be not taking time to eat well or exercise, for others it might be not finding the time to socialise with friends or family and connect with others.

Knowing your values and what is important to you can be a huge help.

How many times have you used the excuse “I don’t have time”? We need to make time for those things that are important to us.

How about if you had a time management strategy? Let’s look at it from the total amount of time you have in a day.

Time management strategy

If you split a day into 20 minute pieces of pie, there are 72 pieces available, in a 24 hour day. That is a lot of 20 minute time slots! If you just put aside one piece of pie, 20 minutes of your day towards moving outdoors, meditation, journaling or preparing fresh meals eating well, 0r making a phone call to friends and family, you are on the right track to taking responsibility of your health.

Here is an example of a day. Everyone’s day is different with varying work and family commitments, and sleeping routines. Have a go yourself and workout your time schedule. For example, you will see that it is possible to set aside one piece of pie for exercise, if not 3 which would be 1 hour of exercise a day. What are you leaving out of your day that you could possibly find time for?
