Increasingly, we have the feeling that we don't have any free time. It's no wonder as our social calendars fill up quickly as we are available via more and more forms of social media. In reality, it isn't that we don't have free time, we just prioritize the time that we have unwisely.
The Big Picture
Many of us have a hard time keeping track of the big picture as we tend to get lost in the details and little projects of everyday life. We spend time worrying about the future or dwell on the past, and then to be dissatisfied with our bodies or lives because of the examples we see as perfect in the media.
Focusing on the perfect images the media presents us with keeps us from being satisfied with our lives.
Time is Finite
Time is our most valuable asset, because we have a finite amount of it. None of us know how much time we have left. That's why it's important to take a look at our own lives. Do we value the time we have or do we take it for granted? Is it really necessary to stay late at the office and sacrifice time with the family? Does that really make us happy long term?
Christmas allows many people to take a break and to evaluate their lives. If there are areas in our lives we want to improve, now is the time to get started!
Focus on taking small, achievable steps, as they add up over time. You don't just have to leave the office on time, it'sore important to be conscious of your time and consciously say no to distractions. Going home from work six minutes earlier each day adds up to a half an hour more of time each week. That is time you could spend with friends, family or on your hobbies.
There are countless ways we can make better use of our time. The important step is not taking it for granted! With this in mind, we wish you a merry Christmas and happy holidays.
