Take a Break

Posted by: | Posted on: December 7, 2017

Life can get busy at times. The busiest period is arguably when someone is in their 30s and 40s. This is due to a number of circumstances.

One is that many people tend to get married during these years. Marriage, most times, brings children. With children, a large number of responsibilities are added to the daily schedule. This is true for both the father and the mother. Extra laundry, cooking extra food, and shopping for extra things take time.

Another reason people are busiest during these years is career progression. During these years, the worker moves towards their greatest potential. That means they will be busier perhaps than when they were in their early 20s.

Take these two circumstances together. What you will find are many responsibilities and duties. There is one thing which will be difficult to find. That would be time! But how can one find time with such a busy life? The only way to find time is to make it.

I literally have to use a calendar to make time for activities and leisure. But I’m happy because it works. I know that what activity I have on any certain day. And I won’t plan anything else during that time.

I use my calendar on my iPhone. The great thing about it is that it reminds me of whatever I have planned. It chimes! I’m sure there are many calendar apps out there. However, I’m happy with the standard one that is basic with the phone.

So, if one has a busy life, the key is to simply make time. If it sounds too good to be true, know that it’s as easy as it sounds. The important part is to stick with the plan. If something comes up, and the activity needs to be moved to another day, be sure to actually move it!
