Time is a precious commodity that we all have in a limited amount, that we cannot create or buy more of. Then it is very important that time is wisely managed and make the most of. Time is money and money must be managed wisely with a budget, meaningful investments and living within your means. I believe in the same principle with time including rest time in the budget.
In today’s fast paced and micro-wave world we do feel at times that we don’t have enough time to get everything done that we want or need to be done. This can cause stress, anxiety burntout, and a sense of disappointment and dissatisfaction with life.
TIME MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET.
Take time out for yourself, means setting aside time each day or week to do something that you enjoy or find relaxing and benefits your overall well-being. It could be reading a book, taking a walk, meditating, practicing yoga or spending time with yourself and or with loved ones.
Doing this renews, revitalize, restores improving your overall well-being. In my words, “I wheel and come again ” refreshed.
COST OF BEING TOO BUSY.
Being too busy could be detrimental to our own health, wealth and happiness. Constantly rushing from one tasks to another, no time management, not able to meet deadlines, setting unattainable goals with limited time frame and not prioritizing, gives us no time to relax, stay calm or connect with ourselves or others. Which can lead to feelings of loneliness, anxiety, stress, depression and unhappiness.
TECHNOLOGY AND TIME.
I find that technology has had a significant impact on relationship and management with time, on the up side it has made some tasks faster and more time efficient making time for more activities. But to every up there is a down side, it also created new demands on our supply of time such as email,text, keeping up with social media and staying connected 24\7. It is important again to be mindful of how we use technology and be mindful of boundaries around it so as not deplete our limited amount of time for each task within our moments.
