All of us have a few hours of extra time on our hands following the lockdowns or the new work from home rules. That’s because we don’t have to do a lot of things we used to do earlier – getting ready for work, traveling, getting stuck in traffic jams, etc. It’s nice to have a breather and spend more time with the family.
But in addition to doing that, let’s try to do a lot more. Don’t waste this precious time that has been added to our lives all of a sudden. Every minute we have is an opportunity, and every minute wasted is an opportunity lost. So here are a few tips to make the best of our time.
Do things you always wanted to do
Treat this as an opportunity to do all those things that you never had the time to do earlier because of your hectic schedule, whether it is exercise, or reading a book, or listening to music, or taking a course.
Make a bucket list
Make a bucket list of all the things you want to do. And tick them off daily. You’ll be surprised how satisfying that feels.
Expand your focus
Try to think of all the opportunities that have appeared in this changed economic situation. It may look like life has come to a standstill from one point of view, but if you look deep, it is an abyss of opportunities, and all you need to do is select the one you want to take.
Give up unnecessary projects
Ask yourself how you can best use your time. Try to weigh each hour in terms of productivity. Give up projects which don’t make sense anymore, and try to add ones which more sensible in the current scenario.
Re-align your goals in life
With so much changing in our everyday lives, we need to relook at our very goals. Are these goals in sync with what is happening around us today? Or do they seem flimsy by nature? Correct and re-align your life strategies to suit the moment. This could improve your life in a big way in the coming years.
Be there for those you love
Don’t we all want to know who will be there for us in times of our need? Well, it is at times like these that this is more apparent. So instead of waiting to see who loves you, be there for those you love. After all, love works both ways.
