Last time we talked about what you can do for yourself but where can you fit it all in?

Let’s start from the beginning. First thing in the morning, if you don’t have trouble getting up, now could be a good time for you to fit something in.

Many people get up early to go to the gym or workout at home. You can use the time to read email, read the news or check your Facebook. You can take some quiet time for yourself, have a cup of coffee or tea and mentally plan your day. Take the time to think about what you could do if you got up ½ hr earlier every day.

Do you commute? What can you do with the time you spend in the car? Listen to music, audio books, talk on the phone.

Lunch time, How much time do you have? This is a good time for a lot of people to get some things done so why not make it something you want to do. Go for a walk, read, shop, if you can, make phone calls or play a game. You fill in the rest.

In between Times, (any time in between activities ) Between classes, waiting for kids during activities, look for things you can fit into these times. Think about how much time you have, what is in the area and what you can bring with you.

If you have good amount of time and the weather is permitting, you can go for a walk or a run. If there is a lot in the area you can get a coffee, look around, or shop. If your time is more limited think of things you can fit into a few minutes. You can have apps or music downloads on your phone or wireless devices. Put on headphones and you can meditate. You can always sit in the car if you have no quiet place to go.

These are just a few of my suggestions. Go through your schedule find time, then think of how you can fill it with things you want to do. The more you do it the easier it gets and the more time you seem to find.

It’s your life live it for you.
