Need More Time? Something Needs to Go.

Career Advice

We all are dealt the same cards: 24 hours in a day. So how do some people seem to use them so much better than others? If you feel that you never have enough time to do what you want, you need to realistically look at your day.

More than likely, you’re dedicating too much of your time to something mundane like too much tv watching, too much internet browsing, or too much emailing. Here are a few things you can cut out of your life that can help you find more time in the day.

  • Delete social media apps from your phone.
    Delete Facebook or Instagram from your phone and you’re less likely to browse it while you’re at home, commuting, or killing time waiting at the doctor’s office. Instead, put the Kindle app on your phone and get some reading done.
  • Remove the TV from your bedroom.
    Do this and you’ll find that you get more sleep, more quality time with your spouse, and more reading done. You also might be less stressed–the news isn’t necessarily the best way to start or end your day. Find something that brings you more joy.
  • Donate the clothing and items you don’t use or love. 
    Imagine a life with less clutter in which you have to make less decisions on what to wear each morning. Sounds pretty nice, right? The fewer things you own, the less you have to stress about. You may not realize how much time our “things” require. Get rid of some of them and find out!
