I find it simply incredible how many minutes a day are wasted in our lives.Â That’s not to say there isn’t a time to relax.Â Â That’s not to say there aren’t times where you really should and deserve to do nothing but sit in a couch and be a vegetable.Â Â I’m talking about the times where you actually are supposed to be productive.
It’s during these times that we still continue to find ways to waste time.Â Â Our days get longer and we get less done.Â Â Wouldn’t it be nice to make your days shorter, get more done, and at least have the option to be a lazy bum afterwards?
Here are seven ways you can achieve this…..
If Could Only Stop Checking My Email So Much
Imagine you only checked your email 3 times a day.Â Â I mean seriously.Â To most of us that sounds completely foreign.Â 3 Times a day?Â HellÂ I’ll check my email 3 times before you’re done reading this sentence.Â Â But honestly do you realize how much more you’d get done if you stopped checking so much?
If I Could Only Do Exactly what I set out to Do That Day
When most of us wake up in the morning we have an idea of what we want to do in a day.Â Â We’ll see it, visualize it, and never, ever act on it.Â Â Somehow and in some way we get distracted by a myriad of things.Â But imagine for one second if you actually stuck to a planner and did what you set out to do with no distractions?Â I’d say I do this about once a year and man do I finish my work fast on those days.
If I Could Only Watch Less than 2 Hrs of TV a Day
The average American watches over 5 hrs of TV a day.Â Yes, over 5 hrs.Â Can you believe that?Â So yeah, another 3 hrs in the day would in theory make us all more productive.Â At the least it would give us a hell of a lot more time to waste more time.
If I Could Only Cut Out Porn Entirely
This is a given for just about any man on the planet.Â Â It may be a no brainer but it still had to be said.
If I Could Only Get to the Gym on a Regular Basis
Exercise helps with so many mental and physical aspects of the body that doing so on a regular basis helps with every possible connection to productivity.Â Less stress and anxiety frees up the mind and allows it to think clearer.Â In turn you’ll be more productive.Â Â Etc Etc.Â I don’t have to tell you all of this.Â Â Bottom line, a better body equals a better mind.Â Â Hell even just breaking a sweat for 20 min a day helps.
If I Could Only Eat Better
See above about getting to the gym.Â Same goes for eating well.
If I Could Only Sleep Better
I’m not talking about breaking up sleep into sections.Â I’m talking about a solid 7-8 hours and going to bed at the same time every night and waking up at the same time every morning (including weekends).Â Try this for a month and see how you feel.Â You’ll be astonished.
