With all the modern technologies we have today, life has never been busier. In the 21st Century, we take on so much more, and are expected to achieve so much more with our day. Women especially are kept increasingly busy with a wide variety of tasks that can range from looking after the kids, climbing the corporate ladder, running a home based business, keeping fit and healthy, and the other million things we women know that we do.So the question then is; how are you spending your quality time? If you really want to learn and grow, and live the life of your dreams, you need to devote some time and energy to focusing on what it is that you want, and cherishing your time with you. Sometimes that sounds impossible, but if it's important enough to you, you need to make the time for it. Here is one tip to regaining some lost time:Turn off the television! Nothing will sap your precious time more than this horrible box. In fact, here are some scary statistics for you:-The average home now has more television sets than people, at 2.73 TV sets in the typical home and only 2.55 people
-The average person watches four hours, 35 minutes of television each day.
-In the average home, a television set is turned on for more than a third of the day - eight hours, 14 minutes (if you consider 8 hours sleep, and 8 hours work, this statistic is even more disturbing!)
This doesn't even count the hours spent on the computer, or surfing the internet!So instead of turning the TV on, like so many people do on auto pilot, set some time aside for you. Write in your journal, call the friend you've been meaning to but haven't had the time, listen to your favourite album, look through some photo albums, give yourself a candlelit bath, create a vision board, meditate on your goals. Whatever it is, take some quality time for you...Katrina Wilton is Director and Co-Founder of Australian Company Glow Health & Wellness Pty Ltd.
