Time to Ignore the Hourglass

I have lived in America all my life and they are the biggest procrastinators in the whole world. Many times, consumers/ customer can't get anything done due to inefficiency. You can go on for years and dealing with the same issue/problem with motor vehicles and other government agencies and corporation not to mention family and friends.
I felt validated by this article because I have adopted a similar philosophy here of late. I am a teacher who used to spend every Sunday doing school paper work. I now make myself take every other WHOLE weekend off. I even stay after a little later if necessary to do this. My new routine has totally destressed my life. I have more time for family, and I find that I still keep up with grading etc...
As I get move along this journey, I am learning that there is time for everything if I just prioritize. No more guilt for me!

I really enjoyed this article. In fact, I print it out and placed it where I can see it everyday. As we get older we take for granted our own time always making excuses of why we can't dedicate a little time for ourselves. Then when we come to realize that we have not invested time in our health at times it's too late.
I like exercising in the morning before work and last week and beginning this week I have made it a priority to go no matter how much time I have. I also like to do my morning spark huddle. I think now if I allot enough time for what I want to do in the morning I must go to bed a little earlier, so I am giving myself a bed time. My mother will love this. All the time we spent fighting her about bed time at the age of 44 I finally see her point.
I love to quilt and try to make time everyday to work on a project. This gives me time to relax and get some Christmas gift made so I am not running around at the last minute. It also saves money...which certainly helps me relax!!
