‘TIPS to Make Time for What Really Matters’

TIPS to simplify and make time for what really matters

TIPS to make time for what really matters: Even though you may have more time on your hands because of the present ‘stay at home’ policy issued by your mayor or governor, do you make time for what really matters to you?

Limit the time you waste on activities such as checking emails on your computer, looking at Facebook, and watching TV. I had a habit of checking my email often, and sometimes spent a half hour on the computer doing so. I would add my latest blog post onto my Facebook timeline, and then scroll down for more than several minutes reading the other entries and fun U-tube videos. Setting time limits helps me while I am doing my work at home. I recommend that you check email and Facebook just a few times a day.

As soon as mail arrives, sort, file or recycle it. The best place to do this is right next to the recycle bin. Make a note of catalogs you no longer want to receive, and don’t wait too long before you go to http://www.catalogchoice.org/ to unsubscribe.

When watching television try multi-tasking. Fold the laundry, exercise, or sort desk papers. And, limit the time you and your family spend in front of the TV, so you have more time doing other activities with one another at home.

Have your spouse, partner or family members help you with the household chores. For example; after a meal have someone clear the table, someone else wash dishes or put them into the dishwasher. The tasks will get done faster, and you’ll have more time to spend with one another, or with yourself.

If home with children, read to them, play games, look at family photos and videos.


Take walks, go running, or take bike rides with your kids in areas without a lot of other people. Be sure to wear a face mask, and observe the six feet distancing when out and about.

Reach out to communicate virtually via Zoom, Facetime, Skype. Contact friends and relatives you haven’t talked to in a while. They will most likely be delighted to hear from you. Play games like Scattergories, Trivia, Name.Place.Animal.Thing, Dictionary or Heads Up. Sing Karaoke, tell ghost stories, tell jokes.

If you are a First Responder, medical front-lines employee or still working full time; whether at home or at the work place take care of yourself. For your own health and peace of mind, don’t lose sight of your priorities like having fun, relaxing, eating well, sleeping enough.

Let me know the TIPS to make time for what really matters to you to simplify, but add interest and fun to your day.
