I was reading on my coaching session today the articles about wasting time, and so on the community section we were encouraged to write a blog about little time wasters, the obvious and not so obvious. I do spend time thinking a lot about how I don't want to do something, and, if I would just do it, then it would be done. But, I don't feel like it then, so I don't. This wastes not only time, but energy, so that is one way I can eliminate some time wasters.

I can also be inefficient at home, walking back and forth for things, instead of waiting and grouping things together, like finishing up everything in my room before I move on to somewhere else. I have become much better, but there is still room for improvement on this.

And, I can tend to stretch things out sometimes, rather than getting them done as soon as possible. I use tiredness as an excuse a lot, and then that leads to other bad behaviors. Usually, doing small tasks never take as long as I think, and I tend to make them so dramatic in my mind that they become huge.

Addressing these thought and activity patterns are one way I can learn to waste less time. I also need to view my exercise time as a time for me, doing something utterly beneficial. I need to learn to be a little more selfish that way, and realize I am worth it. I do pretty well with eating right and getting enough rest, I need to learn to be as jealous with exercise as I am with those two things.

    I think of not bundling things and having to make several trips to but things away as....exercise. More steps in my day haha. I agree that procrastinating only puts off the inevitable.
