Prioritise Your Time

We all lead very busy lives. We just have too much to do and not enough time in which to do it. The result is that we end up stressed. This month I want to share with you some of the things I do to manage my time.

There really are only 24 hours in a day. You have to sleep, eat, exercise and relax as well as meeting all your commitments. So be realistic in what you can do and do not take on more tasks than is humanly possible.

“No – Unfortunately I’m not in a position to do that” or “No – sorry I do not have the time!”

If you are in a business and you have staff under your control, make sure you delegate. In your household – delegate.
Sounds easy ….but is often hard because you think it is easier to do it yourself than take the time to train someone else.
Remember we all had to learn sometime. And what a great opportunity you are giving your staff and family members to learn, develop, grow and feel great about achieving new things. People like to feel needed and responsible.

Schedule time first thing in the morning or last thing the previous day to jot down those things you have to do and then prioritise it. This becomes your action worksheet. Commence working from the most important task down so that by the end of each day, you have made significant inroads into the most important items on your list.

It is easy to jump over an item that you would rather not do – most of us are tempted to do this from time to time. The skill is to ignore the impulse to skip the task and just knuckle down and do it. You really will feel better for doing it. I have some great tools that can support you further with this.

So there it is – 5 simple steps to optimising your time.

Stress and Relax

A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked “how heavy is this glass of water?”

He continued “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, you might have to get an ambulance.”

He Continued “and that’s the way it is with stress management. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be able to carry on. As with the glass of water, we have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again.”

So we all need to find time to put our burdens down and relax


Here are some steps to help you relax

1. Make time to relax each day.

2. Get comfortable. Sit or lie down and close your eyes

3. Imagine a soothing restful scene e.g.: bush or beach

4. Start to relax all the muscles in your body by tensing and then relaxing them.

5. Begin with your toes and work through your body until every muscle is relaxed.

6. Next, concentrate on your breathing—slow and deep, slow and deep.

7. Clear your mind by only concentrating on your breathing

8. Spend at least 15 minutes on the above each day.

2018 Full Steam Ahead

Mid January already…Where have the past three weeks gone !!!??? Have you noticed that the older we get the quicker the years seem to go? Possibly a result of our ever increasingly busy lives.

I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year – I certainly did. The New Year is always a time for reflection and planning. Planning our dreams and aspirations for the coming year…or more. I hope that whatever New Year’s resolutions you chose, you have achieved ….or you are still on track to achieve them.

Give me a call for tips on how to keep focused and motivated.

So what does 2018 hold for you?
Through these blogs, I want to share some of my thoughts with you on what we can do to make our lives awesome.

Healthy Mind = Healthy Body

I honestly believe that a healthy mind is the key to a healthy body. In fact, statistics show that the majority of medical dollars are spent treating disease, and most experts believe 90% of diseases are due to stress.
Reduce stress and your health improves because you significantly reduce your chances of disease.

So what is STRESS ?

Stress is not the challenges we face in our lives, it is the way we react physically and mentally to these challenges.

Fear & Excuses

Right now I am going through a huge change in my life. It is a very exciting time but also a demanding and challenging time. At the forefront is the fear of the unknown, fear of just “what have I let myself in for?”, fear of not succeeding, fear of what others will think.

Oh it would be so easy to just find all the excuses why I should do something else. I could easily convince myself that I don’t have the skills, that I don’t need the angst in my life, that it is all just too hard, that for whatever reason it would be easier to do something else.

Have YOU ever faced a fear and then looked for excuses to avoid facing the issue?
Here are some steps to help you face those fears and avoid making excuses:

  • Accept that making excuses is not being true to yourself, family or friends.
  • Focus on your goals and believe in yourself to achieve them.
  • Realise that you have the power to think and feel how you want to.
  • Make a commitment to take FULL responsibility for your life. That means no more blaming anything or anyone. Not your fear, not your parents, not your circumstances, not your spouse, not your children, and certainly not your age.
  • Get inspired. Associate with people who inspire you, who are a good influence on you.
  • Appreciate YOU. Take time every day to appreciate your innate gifts.
  • Fake it till you make it. Pretend to believe, stay POSITIVE and eventually you will BELIEVE & BE.
  • Just do it! As Nike says, stop making excuses and take a small step today. Not tomorrow. TODAY.

As for me. Well I accepted the challenge, overcame my fear and I am now enjoying the fruits that the change has brought to my life. You can do it too.
