Get A Life: How to Spend More Time Living and Less time Working
- by siteadmin
In the age of social media, we have been conditioned to believe that our lives are not worth living if they aren’t being documented for all to see. This is a problem because it leads us to spend more time working and less time living. In this blog post, I will share with you 3 tips on how you can change your mindset and start spending more time living instead of working!
Get rid of your television
It is estimated that the average American spends more than 30 hours a week in front of their TV. This means you are spending almost five full days every month watching television! Studies show that we watch much less when we get rid of our TVs, so I suggest trying it out for yourself to see if you can reclaim some time back in your life.
Set boundaries with social media
Social media can be a great way to stay connected with friends and family, but it can also be a huge time suck. One way to combat this is to set boundaries for yourself. For example, only check your Facebook account once a day or limit yourself to 30 minutes of Instagram scrolling per day.
The best way to start spending more time living and less time working are by setting goals for yourself. Make a list of things you want to do in your free time and then work towards accomplishing them! Whether it’s taking up a new hobby, going on walks every evening, or reading one book per month, make sure you are actively trying to enjoy life outside of work.
If you’re having trouble getting started, here are a few ideas to get you started:
â€¢ Travel more â€“ There is no better way to experience new cultures and learn about different ways of life than by traveling.
â€¢ Spend time with family and friends â€“ These are the people who know and love you the most, so make sure you take the time to spend quality time with them.
â€¢ Volunteer â€“ Giving back to your community is a great way to feel good about yourself and connect with others.
â€¢ Get outside! â€“ Go for walks, hikes, or bike rides in nature; it’s a great way to disconnect from electronics and reconnect with yourself.
