T’is the season of love, make the most of it with these tips
You’re no stranger to long days on the job. When you finally walk in the door, the last thing you want is to be met with chaos and more work. But what if you could take control of your time and make sure you’re spending it with the people who matter most? Rather than hours of admin, wouldn’t it be better to be taking the kids out for ice cream or going for a walk to the local park or beach with your partner?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. This situation is common for a lot of people. Here are a few simple tips to help you spend quality time with your family and friends this Valentine’s Day and beyond:
Tip #1: Streamline Your Business Life with NextMinute. Save time and simplify your life with NextMinute’s all-in-one solution for people, planning, pricing, and profits. Say goodbye to endless admin and hello to more time with your loved ones. Okay… shameless plug done!.
Tip #2: Create a Personal To-Do List. Sometimes, our lives can get a bit out of balance. If you’re not spending enough time with your family or friends, it might be time to seek additional support. Grab a whiteboard and make a daily to-do list of the personal things you want to accomplish. This will help you prioritise your time and focus on what matters most.
Tip #3: Take Time for Self-Care. It’s easy to forget about our own well-being when life gets busy, but taking care of yourself is essential if you want to be there for your loved ones. Set aside some time for yourself, whether that’s going to the gym, relaxing at the beach, or doing something else that brings you joy. You can’t expect to be your best self if you’re not giving YOU the space to breathe every now and again.
Tip #4: Establish a Routine. As John Dryden said, “We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.” Invest time in building habits that prioritise your family and friends. Here are some ideas to get this tip started:
- Every third Thursday is date night with your partner. Keep it interesting by going somewhere new every time. If that’s not always possible, try something new on the menu!
- Every fourth Friday is movie night with the kids and incentivise the kids to get involved. For example, give your kids tasks for the week, whoever is the best gets to pick what movie you watch, or what you have for dinner.
We hope these tips and tricks help you to get out there and spend some quality time with your loved ones. And a very Happy Valentine’s Day to you.
