Do you know that an average woman spends one year of her lifetime deciding what to wear? And the average man spends more than 11 months between the ages of 18 and 50 staring at women! Though we know that we spend more time watching TV shows, (around three hours a day) we spent 61 minutes a day watching ads and other promotions unknowingly. Do these really matter to our success to spend these much time? Well, here are some ways to spend our time effectively.
From childhood we have been forced by our parents or teachers to do some work, may be to read, eat or even to bath. Its time for us to pressurise ourselves to do our own work. This could be done by making schedules. Start your day with a schedule or make a standard schedule which you can change accordingly. Learn to say NO. When you have more things to do than your actual capacity you may end up doing nothing. Lock yourself in a room so that you can have full concentration on what you do. This will help you finish your work soon and go to the next. When you start prioritising your works and start doing the most important ones first, the day becomes easy. Decide which is more important and do it now!
Appearances are deceptive. Start doing things which will be helpful and permanent. Beauty is always temporary and the time spent on it is waste. Stop getting inspired by others face and your desire to impress them. Life is too short to spend time for others. Make that time productive. Learn new things. Follow excitement and try to do what you are afraid of. Remember, the things which get to you because of your beauty are as temporary as it and it will leave you once your beauty leaves. Think what matters!
Do not let social media consume your time. I used to spend more time like anyone on social media before I realised the purpose of my life. Scrolling through new feeds, gossips doesn’t help you in anyway. So, I unfollowed most celebrities, fan clubs and meme pages. Go through your ‘following’ list once and unfollow whatever page you think is useless. I started reading more (not magazines) and it was a new kind of joy. Scroll through pages and not feeds. Look at things from a new perspective. Use social media to impact others rather than to inspire them. Be happy by uplifting fellow people. Make the time you spend on social media useful by spending time with friends discussing helpful topics. Just spend less time with your phone than yesterday. I don’t say to avoid it completely.
Have a close bond with nature, travel, laugh and get inspired by everyone you see. Gift for new reason and help without any expectation. Try doing these and you will realise what life really means. These will become your habit if you do them for 21 days. All the best!
