Life is always busy and the one thing we often miss is giving time to ourselves. It is not only just a statement, that you need to give time to yourself but a necessity. Thus, you need to make sure to identify and use the ways that will help in giving more time to yourself.
Do not be drastic
It is never easy to change a habit one fine morning. Of course the time sucking habits in your life will need time to change and you have to make sure to take small steps to work towards their elimination. It is not easy but with practice certainly achievable.
What do you love?
The first thing we cut out from our life to accommodate the time sucking activities are the things that we love to do. Slowly, we keep on pushing further and further. It is true we cannot keep doing them always but once in a while taking time to do it will elevate our mood. Being happy is one of the best use of our time.
The first step is making a detailed list of your activities and then finding the ones that take most of your time. If you see it includes too much of virtual time then it is advisable to decrease it. After all, human communication is much more valuable than virtual interaction.
Let it go
Do not be sad about the time you have lost but could have spent doing something else. Past is past and make sure you try to cut down on such moments of regret. Try to roll with the time and you will see an amazing transformation.
Change in thought
Think about the happiness you will get by spending some quality time with someone you love or doing something you cherish. Also, do not feel guilty about giving less overtime at your work.
