My time management skills weigh in with a lot more benefits when I replace the activities that waste my time with the things that inspire me.
This one replacement allows me to be more productive in less time and still have plenty of room in my schedule for rest and relaxation. When I do the things I enjoy, they rejuvenate me, making me even more motivated when I return to my tasks!
I recognize that stress and worry are the heaviest causes of stagnation. They waste my time, distract my focus, and turn productive energy into harmful effects. The more stress and worry I can remove, the better off I am.
I choose to replace worry with optimism and a joyful outlook on life. When I know deep down that everything will turn out for the best, I have less stress. When I remember to look for the silver lining, I am choosing to appreciate the best that life has to offer.
Instead of worrying about things at night before I sleep, or starting off my day worrying about what is to come, I use this time to meditate, relax, and revive my motivation.
Instead of spending so much time watching television, I actively engage in self-improvement activities to boost my body, mind, and spirit.
Today, my plan is to take note of all activities that I feel are wasting my time and replace them with something that inspires me.
- Do I let stress and worry disrupt my life and my schedule?
- How much time do I spend watching TV? Do I feel that some of that time is wasted?
- How can I change my outlook on life to appreciate more of the good things it has to offer?
