Eliminate These 3 Time Suckers to Reclaim Your Bliss

Are you constantly racing against the clock, feeling as if time is slipping through your fingers? You're not alone. Many people find themselves trapped by these three common time wasters. Today, let's talk about how to effectively eliminate them from your life. After all, getting control of your time can be a major step toward creating the blissful life you crave.

Unnecessary Interruptions

How many times have you been in the zone, only to be snapped out of it by an unexpected interruption? It's frustrating and disorienting, to say the least. Most people aren't well-suited for constant task-switching, and each disruption can knock you off course, leaving you less productive and more stressed.

So how can you guard your time like a treasure? Create a specific schedule and stick to it like glue. Inform your coworkers, family, or anyone who shares your space about your "focus times" and make sure they know not to disturb you during these periods. Even a simple "Do Not Disturb" sign can do wonders for safeguarding your mental space.

One thing that I often did when I was working in an office, was shut and lock my door. I would even sometimes put a sign up that I was in the middle of something and to leave me a message and I would get back to them. This gave me time to focus without a lot of disruptions because I rarely shut my door, so it became a sign to people that I couldn't be disturbed.

Lack of Planning

Have you heard the saying, "If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail?" There's a reason why it's a classic. Without a plan, you're essentially just winging it, leaving yourself open to unforeseen challenges that can throw your entire day off balance.

Take a few minutes each day to engage in short-term, medium-term, and long-term planning. Whether your goals are personal, like losing weight or organizing your home, or work-related, like scaling a business, SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) can guide you through the process much more efficiently than just flying by the seat of your pants.

Every day at the end of my workday, I plan out my to-do list for the next day. This helps me to know what I need to do when I sit down at my desk in the morning, and I am not "searching" or "scrolling" the internet to remember what I wanted to get accomplished. #setyourselfupforsuccess

Thinking You Have to Do It All Yourself

This is a trap many of us fall into, especially those who have nurtured the idea that asking for help is a sign of weakness. But here's the reality: no one is an island. Whether you're juggling household chores, raising kids, or running a business, help is available. From delegating tasks to family members to hiring professionals for specific jobs, there are many ways to share the load.

Moreover, don't underestimate the power of technology. Simple automation tricks, like scheduling your bills, savings, and investments, can save you hours each month.

I hear you, asking for help can be tough, but so is trying to do everything yourself. Ask yourself which hard you want to do and then do it. I bet after a few times of trying to do it all you will find something to delegate.

The Road to Bliss

Eliminating these time suckers can free up not just your schedule, but also your mental space, allowing you to rediscover your true bliss. When you're not weighed down by distractions, poor planning, or the overwhelming feeling that you have to do it all, you can focus on what truly matters: living a life filled with purpose and joy.

So, take a step today. Start carving out the time to establish healthy boundaries, rethink your planning strategy, and share the responsibilities in your life. Because remember: Belief + Boundaries = BLISS.

Stay blissful, Jen
