15 Minutes

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I've been telling myself I'm "too busy" to take the time to exercise, eat right, clean the apartment, or sleep well. But that's not true. I just create a mind and space of chaos, which leads to crashing out and wasting time with self-destructive behaviors - like watching three episodes of Lost in a row on finals week. On finals week!

If I can make time to crash, I can make time to PREVENT crashing.

I can do anything in 15 minutes. Read my bible. Wash the dishes. Mop the floor. Sit down and savor a healthy lunch. Take a walk. Do a short workout video. I'm going to utilize the power of 15 minutes and make time for nourishment.

That's my goal for this week. To make time for the extra stuff. Because they're worth it.

    15 minutes doesn't sound like much time- but it is 15 minutes

    Great plan! And so true -- sometimes we get ourselves so overwhelmed with everything we have to do, we spend more time finding ways to delay them. I am very guilty of that, but I’m trying to be better! One thing I do a lot now is complete a task in shifts – if I’m watching a TV show and a commercial comes on, that is enough time to clean the toilet or at least partially empty the dishwasher. Or if I have to run upstairs for something, I make sure to take that basket of folded laundry up too. Little things like that help me get the job done!

    And don’t be too hard on yourself, finals week is HORRIBLE! Good luck!
