9 Ways to Get More Out of Your Day

With our hectic day to day schedule, it can be very easy to forget to takecare of our physical, emotional and spiritual health. When we are pressed for time, we tend to exercise less, eat foods that do not have nutritional value, have less time to interact with our families and friends, and spend little, if any time, on self-development and spiritual growth. I try to make somefamily time everyday because it is important.

Here are some simple ways you can begin to take back some of your time, in other words, make time.

Set aside a certain amount of time each day just to do what you want to do. How about 1 hour each day? If that’s not “possible,” start with smaller increments of time, say 15 minutes, and work your way up. I use a timer and tell myself that this is what I will do for either half hour or an hour.

Doing part of something is better than doing nothing. Even if you can’t complete a task or a project, it is better to take a small “chunk” out of it rather than letting the whole thing slide until later. If you absolutely “hate” working in that manner, then just make sure you set aside a specific time to complete the entire task or project.

Learn to say “No.” This isn’t always easy, but it can make a world of difference. Even if you don’t want to say “No” completely, try to set limits around how much you will do and when.

Bundle your tasks. Save up non-urgent errands so that you can do those that are logistically close to one another.

And, most importantly, set aside time each week to do something special. Make sure that, no matter how busy you are, you take time to play. I do find time for friends and we have dinner and lunch dates.
