9 Ways to Get More Out of Your Day

Time to Ignore the Hourglass


    I really enjoyed this article. In fact, I print it out and placed it where I can see it everyday. As we get older we take for granted our own time always making excuses of why we can't dedicate a little time for ourselves. Then when we come to realize that we have not invested time in our health at times it's too late. - 10/7/2013 1:46:30 PM
  • Stop reading articles on line. - 9/20/2013 11:13:22 AM
  • I would add: limit the time you spend online/on social networks/et cetera. That is my problem that I've been working on lately ;)

    Good reminders. - 9/20/2013 11:12:02 AM
  • Great advice. - 6/6/2013 11:18:57 AM
  • This is definitely a good article. Not anything brand new, but we certainly need reminders. - 3/15/2013 2:28:52 PM
  • We have to begin to simplify our lives a bit and these are some good tips in doing that!! We don't always have to be "connected." - 1/2/2012 4:36:02 AM
  • I like exercising in the morning before work and last week and beginning this week I have made it a priority to go no matter how much time I have. I also like to do my morning spark huddle. I think now if I allot enough time for what I want to do in the morning I must go to bed a little earlier, so I am giving myself a bed time. My mother will love this. All the time we spent fighting her about bed time at the age of 44 I finally see her point. - 6/27/2011 8:40:07 PM

  • Well said and great advice. I have been working on a couple os these ideas and will add some more to my life!

    Letting go of work when home has been a goal of mine this past year! - 6/27/2011 8:39:32 AM
  • I love to quilt and try to make time everyday to work on a project. This gives me time to relax and get some Christmas gift made so I am not running around at the last minute. It also saves money...which certainly helps me relax!! - 4/16/2011 7:46:39 AM
  • "Do the yucky stuff first."

    I have always done this, in every aspect of my life. I eat my least favorite foods out of a meal first. I do the most boring of my home work first. I do my bathroom first while doing my house work. Its a great idea and it ensures that I'll actually get the tasks at hand done! - 4/15/2011 9:33:23 AM
  • If you are the primary home-keeper in your little world (I hate the word housekeeper!) join Flylady's group. It's a great time-saver and is wonderful for your self-esteem as well. You'll be amazaed at how much free time you can squeeze out of your day when your life and daily routines are simpler. A couple of nice Spark Teams align with Flying tool FLY: Finally Loving Yourself. :) - 4/15/2011 9:25:31 AM
  • My "What I did for myself today"? I read the Bible instead of watching TV. - 4/15/2011 7:52:35 AM
  • TIME, the four letter word we all need more of. This year I have started making time for me. Each morning I get up and exercise for 30 minutes. Then spend a little time on Sparkpeople while having my cup of coffee. I can't tell you how just starting with that time for me has helped my attitude. I just hope I can keep it up!!! - 1/20/2011 6:38:38 AM
