Not enough time? Problem solved 💯

We all have the same 24 hours in a day; the question is, what do you do with it?

When I talk to clients, they often say a barrier is not having enough time. Have you ever sat down to think: Where do I spend my time?

Show me your calendar, and I’ll show you your priorities.

Reports in 2024 show that the average person spends 2.5 hours per day on social media and 3 hours per day watching TV!

Let’s do a time audit: What are you spending your day doing? I recommend doing it for one work day and one non-work day. Write down everything you do. You can even use your phone to track how much time you spend on your phone and what you do during that time.

What are you noticing?

  • Are there things you are spending time on that aren’t moving you closer to your goals (personally, relationally, professionally)?
  • Where can you be more efficient?
  • What can be automated?

Making time – comes down to planning.

Instead of going to the grocery store 3-4 times per week, plan out your meals, make a double batch to cut cooking time, and save extra trips to the grocery store.  

Instead of starting a bunch of tasks and then getting distracted; can you focus on one thing?

Here’s how you make the time:

  1. Eliminate distractions – use the do not disturb or airplane feature on your phone
  2. Organize your day based on your energy levels – if you perform best in the morning maybe you start the day with exercise and then any important tasks you want to accomplish for the day, flip-flop that if you perform best mid-day or in the evening.
  3. Pre-decide – plan your week according to your priorities. Map out what you will eat, when you will exercise, and anything else you value for yourself.
  4. Automate what you can – schedule out what you can, opt for a grocery delivery instead of a pick-up. Use your devises to help you save time and automate areas of life when possible.
  5. Outsource when you can- are there tasks you do that someone else could take care of for you? Maybe even ask your household to share the burden of daily chores to help free up some of your time.

If you don’t make the time, you won’t have the time.

If you want your health to be a priority, you need to make it a priority.

  • Exercise and daily movement – Aim for 30+ minutes per day
  • Nutrition – Utilize plate method to keep things simple
  • Sleep – Aim for 7+ hours per night
  • Mindset – instead of doing, just being
