“I’ve heard that meditation and exercise will make my life work more smoothly, but I never find the time for this. How can I make this a priority?”
First get clear on why you want to meditate or exercise. Your why is the fuel that keeps you moving forward when obstacles come in the way. If your children’s lives depended on you exercising, would you make time?
Once you are clear on your why, here are a few tips that will help you increase your productivity and “make time” for mediation and exercise:
- Chunk your time into focused blocks where you do only one thing at a time.
- Prioritize what is most important. Perhaps you can cut back on certain activities, like cleaning the house less often to squeeze a short workout in.
- Track your time.
Darren Hardy, the publisher of Success Magazine, attributes tracking to be one of the most valuable tools in his success. Track every hour of your day to see where the time goes. This will allow you to then make changes to your daily actions.
