Local leaders | Wellbeing: Time management

People like to say "I don't have time to xyz" and what they really mean is "I'm prioritising other things in the time I have."

We all have the same amount of time. If you want to make good things happen, it's your responsibility to choose how you will use your time.

Each week your 168 hours are divided between seven sections (days).

Behavioural studies show that when we move through life giving gratitude and celebrating the small wins, great things happen.

Prioritise what you love about your days and everything else comes easy!

I always start by prioritising my sleep: how many hours are completely taken by sleep and rest?

Prioritise rest and re-creation, and everything else comes easy! What you've got left is the productive part of your day.

Mark out jobs, work, appointments, and any other responsibilities.

Now whatever is left over is your time to make things happen!

Spend a moment at the end of each week reviewing what you have achieved.

Research shows that we are more able to make things happen when we keep track of our progress.

Ask yourself, "How could this week have been better?", "What were the three things that created the most change?" and "What do I now have the awareness of, that I did not before?"

Prioritise reflection of your own journey and everything else truly comes easy!

So, with all of those 168 hours, what will you create today?
