[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text animation=”animate-when-visible” css_animation=”bottom-to-top”]It feels like just the other day when my teenager was only 5 years old and running out to meet me after work screaming ‘mommy!!!!’ and giving me the biggest hug ever. Today I am lucky if I get a fist-bump.
Where has, the time has gone? In the blink of an eye, your children have grown up, you never attempted that project you wanted to do, you haven’t learned the language you thought of or managed to go on that dream holiday.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text animation=”animate-when-visible” css_animation=”bottom-to-top”]Time is precious. Time is what we want the most, but use the worst. It is the one thing that we cannot get more of. We all have exactly the same amount of time available: 24 hours in a day, 60 minutes in an hour and 60 seconds in every minute. The problem today is that as soon as we have a little bit of time available, we fill it up with something else – why do we do that? Why do we have this inconsistent need to always be busy? Our brains and bodies need the downtime to rejuvenate. Science has proven that we need this rest so that our brains can process experiences, solve problems by daydreaming, and our brains also need the rest for memory, creativity and motor skills.
Think about your own day and about the amount of time you spend doing various tasks; working, driving your children to school and extra-mural activities, preparing meals, shopping, household chores, homework, checking emails and social media, and if you are very lucky you might find 45 minutes to watch one episode of your favorite series that you have been trying to catch up on for the last six months. When do you actually have a break away from all of that?
Instead of complaining about how little time you have, do something about it! Have you ever tried to reconstruct your day so that you will end up with more available time?
Many people argue that they work in a full-time job and so their personal time is very limited as most of their day is spent in the office. Agreed. But has it ever crossed your mind that there are alternate ways to earn an income? Who said that to work you must sit in an office for eight hours of your day? There are ways to earn a full-time income by working for only a few hours in the morning and then spending the afternoon with your children baking gingerbread men and playing hide-and-seek? Imagine that…a few extra hours per day for you to do what you want, and when you want.
Think about that and remember that the life you live is determined by your choices. With technology as it is now, you need to start thinking outside of the box and take a look at what you have and what you want, and take the first step in making the necessary changes to live the life that you want, the way that you want it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”8292″ alignment=”right” onclick=”link_image” animation=”animate-when-visible” css_animation=”left-to-right”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”8293″ onclick=”img_link_large” animation=”animate-when-visible”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
