  • 4 ways to make time for the things you love

January 28, 2019

The beginning of another year has arrived and I feel like I didn’t accomplish much in the past year. The thought of that alone got me feeling weary and unhappy.

To make sure the New Year isn’t like the previous one, I came up with ways to make time for the things I love. Feel free to try the following tips too. I hope they work for you like they do for me.

Examine your daily schedule

Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I write down my typical daily schedule and I use that to analyze the things I am spending my time and energy on. By doing that, I have been able to adjust my schedule, while reducing the time I spend on things that don’t add value – such as screen time, phone use, etc. And where there are leaks, I fill them up with the things that are most important to me.

Take one step at a time

I used to rush through each day, doing multiple tasks simultaneously, but I was failing at most things as I couldn’t even complete one task effectively. I realized multitasking didn’t work for me. I couldn’t even make time for the things I love. So, I decided to complete one thing, then move to another.

I cannot even begin to explain the peace I have found since I started taking things one step at a time. I am now able to achieve more and I feel more confident moving to the next task.

Spend 30 minutes each day on the things you love

Instead of thinking about the hours I would spend on one thing, which normally prevented me from doing anything, I started spending 30 minutes each day on the things I crave. I have come to the realization that there is time, we just need to make space. Now that I can work through my goals, I feel a sense of real calm.

Reward yourself each time you achieve something

Go ahead and give yourself a treat. Whenever I feel a sense of accomplishment, I give gratitude to God and give myself a day of doing nothing other than eating. :). Then I go shopping. These ensure I don’t lose motivation, so I can do more.

If your relationship with time is based on “no time now, I will do it later”, then you are simply telling yourself that the things you crave are not your priority. It’s time to redefine your relationship with time. Knowing that you have put your priorities first will get you more relaxed.

You can’t change anyone, but you can manage the behavior you expect from them. With self-consciousness, you will be able to teach people how to treat you, and if they prefer to be manipulative rather than respectful of your feelings, let them go. An unhealthy relationship might end up damaging your health. I know it’s hard to let go, but know that your sanity matters.
