No Time to Exercise

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Like money, we feel that we have no time if we don't know how we SPEND our time.

Consider keeping a log on what you do in a day. How much time do you spend:

1. Watching television
2. Checking email over and over throughout the day
3. Surfing the internet or cruising chat rooms with no purpose in mind
4. Wandering around stores, just looking for bargains
5. Shuffling the same papers back and forth on your desk
6. Worrying

Where are you wasting time? It should not be too difficult to make time for yourself that enhances your life. Try keeping a log for a week or even just a day. You may be surprised as to how much time you actually have.

In good health,
Anne Pringle Burnell

    Just another reason I tossed out the ol' TV about 30 years ago. When we want to watch a movie (and it's rare!), we'll make a date night, get the dvd and stay home.

With 5 acres to maintain, there's not much time to spare.

I've limited my time on SparkPeople.
And though it is a great resource - and
it too can be a time-eater.

    TV and the internet are both time eaters. I limit my TV watching to a planned time now rather than every evening and on weekends. I'm stunned by how that has freed up my time for more constructive things.
