  • I felt validated by this article because I have adopted a similar philosophy here of late. I am a teacher who used to spend every Sunday doing school paper work. I now make myself take every other WHOLE weekend off. I even stay after a little later if necessary to do this. My new routine has totally destressed my life. I have more time for family, and I find that I still keep up with grading etc...

    As I get move along this journey, I am learning that there is time for everything if I just prioritize. No more guilt for me!

    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.

    Stop reading articles on line.
  • 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.
  • This is definitely a good article. Not anything brand new, but we certainly need reminders.
  • 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."
  • 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.
  • Very useful suggestions. Thanks!
  • Excellent article and suggestions. Thanks, everyone!
  • 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!
  • 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!!
  • "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!
  • 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. :)
  • My "What I did for myself today"? I read the Bible instead of watching TV.
