Do you ask for help?
I have often heard people say that they don’t have time to do the things they love. It is true that they must have tried but weren’t able to pursue.
Here is what I do to have some time on my hands and do what I love to do.
I seek help. At work or at home, I believe that reaching out to others is a fair deal.
Most people end up doing a lot of things by themselves and then are overwhelmed with the time they spend on chores. At work when we don’t seek help, we reinvent the wheel. We do things that have already been done and then waste time in redoing.
At home, the chores eat up a lot of time and then we repent that the weekend went by too fast or not being able to hit the gym or take a walk in the park.
I think it’s all up to us. Ask yourself these questions –
- Do I delegate chores?
- Am I comfortable with someone else handling things for me?
- Will I let someone else run an errand and use my time to do something I enjoy?
- Am I prioritizing what I want from my day or an hour that I have for myself?
If you answer ‘No’ to any of the questions above, you should seek help. Friends, family or someone who you can trust. Letting go some little things from your big basket of mundane chores will make a lot of difference to not just your me-time but also to your life.
Try it out to know what I mean.
