It’s been said you can make more money, but you can’t make more time. Meaning, we all only have 24 hours- a-day – we can’t make it 25 hours in a day, unless you count the weekends when we “Fall Back.”. In reality, we all need to create more margin in our days.
Two recent studies caught my eye:
– One is we say we are too busy to exercise, but a study shows that we have time. We just use that time to watch TV or look at our phones.
– Another study says, most parents spend as much time with their phones as their kids. That same study said, kids wish their parents weren’t on their phones that much.
What these studies are really telling us – how we allocate our time, impacts our health and our relationships. We need to be mindful of how we spend our time. Are we wasting time, or using it to invest in us and others.
