It seems like there’s another social media platform popping up every day – Periscope, Peach, Yik Yak, Kik – and many more. Yikes!
All this social media can be overwhelming. It might be time to take a break from all your technological crutches (yes, that means email too) to give your brain a breather and refocus on the real-life priorities that really matter to you.
“Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.”
Do you feel like there’s never enough time? Do you have trouble making time for self-care, healthy meal planning, and exercise because it feels like time is always running out?
Time is not unlimited. It’s really a commodity. There is a lot that can be shifted in your life based on the way that you view and value time. A few switches in your thinking can go a long way to create more balance and time-management in your life.
Where do you fall on your list of priorities? Taking care of ourselves certainly isn’t always easy. Mainly because it takes time, and so many of us just don’t make the time to do it. It could be that you aren’t even in the top 5 of your existing priority list. We, particularly women, have a habit of putting ourselves in last. Our children, partner, work, volunteer and social obligations all seem to come in before us. So how do we overcome the time and priority hurdle?
We’ve all been there. We’re working away at our desk; happily ticking boxes off our to-do lists, when suddenly it hits us - Must. Have. Chocolate. Without warning, our previously-composed day goes out the window, and our thoughts are nearly completely consumed by the vending machine down the hall. We’re better than this, we think to ourselves, we can ignore this! But once a craving hits, our willpower army is seemingly disarmed, and we so often see no option but to give in.
