Take a Break and Connect to Yourself – the Best Time is When You Don’t Have Time

Take a Break and Connect to Yourself – the Best Time is When You Don’t Have Time

Now, it’s true that the world we live in has changed dramatically over the last few years. With this in mind, it’s important to note that we are rarely even finding time for ourselves. Just take a moment to think when was the last time when you actually went out without being burdened about deadlines or pressing workload? Or, when was the last time you actually went out? That’s right – you probably can’t remember, or if you do, the memory is going to be rather blurry.

People are Busy – That’s a Fact

We do live very busy lifestyles. There are no two ways around it. However, it’s also true that if we want to have a good personal life as well as a proper career, we need to find the balance. You need to make time for yourself in order to connect with what you really want to do. I recently read a quote which said that people are always waiting for the right time to come while time is only ticking away.

Thinking about it right now, there is a lot of merit to this. The right time is never going to come. In fact, there is no such thing as the right time. Time is time – it’s not good, it’s not bad – it’s just time. So, if you can’t make time for yourself, the problem is not with your work – it’s with you.

Pay Attention

Start paying more attention to what’s around you. Your life isn’t just work and tasks – it’s every single moment that passes by while you are too busy staring at the computer. The best time is when you don’t have time. That’s just it. Make sure that you have it. Make sure that you are the commander of your own time and you spend it properly because it’s never coming back.

And, while you are at it, keep in mind that a simple schedule can go a long way. Start with baby steps – begin waking up earlier, focus when it matters and don’t fend off assignments for later on – just handle them as they are. And, the most important thing that you need to account for is to be well aware of your own limits. If you can’t handle a significant workload without being able to spend some time for yourself, don’t take up so much work.

    Thanks Jen. My most evil time waster is my phone. Checking emails, posts, social media every fie minuets takes longer than getting the real life stuff done. A new year goal is not to look at email in the bedroom... No i'm not that boring, but I had got in a routine of reading me email before I switch off my light, and as soon as I switch it on in the morning. I had convinced my self it help me slow down and relax and night to catch up... I've switched to an old fashioned non digital paperback and i'm already sleeping better.

    Also if you have not seen this discussion yet watch it. Ignore the boring Millennials (i'm joking before you start tweeting) but interesting from the discussion above and the use of time and social media. https://www.facebook.com/VineSurvivor/videos/1232136226872420/?autoplay_reason=all_page_organic_allowed&video_container_type=0&video_creator_product_type=2&app_id=2392950137&live_video_guests=0
