Recapturing wasted time

Monday, December 31, 2012

One of my assignments on Spark Coach today was to blog about how I waste time and to come up with healthier ways I can use that time to reach my goals.

Boy do I know how to waste time - especially on Facebook! While a short amount of time on Facebook is a nice way to unwind and catch up with people, too much time is definately a waste and an escape from reality.

Escaping reality does not help me reach my goals!

While I am out shopping today, I am picking myself up a planner, in which I will schedule my time. I will schedule my daily workouts and I will schedule my downtime - including Facebook. I will use a timer at first, to stick to the amount of time I have given myself.

With my new found free time - I will be able to spend more time with my family, make sure I fit in those scheduled workouts, cross more things off my to-do list, and make sure I fit in my Sparktime.

    If you have a Smart phone you can do as I do. I set reminders in my phone. Like for instance I have one to go off each morning that says 'I will stick with my plan today' and they remind me of different things throughout the day.
Here are some others
'I'm totally determined'
'Mary you can do this'
Of course I have my doctor's appointments, birthdays and various other things I need to be reminded of. But you have also given me the idea to also schedule my workouts and to drink a glass of water (I struggle with this).

I'm sure you already know what 'they say' (whoever they are).
If you fail to plan then you plan to fail.

I wish you well.
