Boy, have the weeks been flying! It’s seems like one day it’s early September, sneeze and it’s the third week of October…
Time waits for no one, but wouldn’t it be nice for it to seem like it’s slowing down for you…? Well, you’ve come to the right place because I’m going to give you a few ways I “increase” the hours!
So, first off, to make time linger, you have to do time consuming things. Or not a LOT of things that eat up time.
1. Get Up Early
Ouch… if you’ve been reading for a while, you know I LOVE sleeping and
HATE strongly dislike getting up early…
Let me just say it now- the key to making your weekend last is making the most of it. Make the most of your time, don’t waste it.
On the weekends, don’t skip breakfast, why? Simple, if you have time for a real breakfast, you’re not in a hurry and you’ll do fine with keeping an eye on time.
2. Do Tidious Things
You know those tasks you didn’t have time for during the week? Those okayish things you would sorta not mind doing except with homework and such you don’t want to add more to your plate… (yes, I’m talking about chores… No. Not really, any task you put off will do *smiles guiltly*)
If you had a time-consuming sketch in mind to try, a recipe to attempt or whatever, now is the perfect time to try it!
3. Scheduling Post (for Bloggers)
If you’re like me… (I feel like I say this a lot) then you don’t have a whole bunch of post planned. You have like one, planned in draft status. Or, *feels proud of self* you have one planned to actually publish! Nevertheless, writing a post is a good way to keep track of time. Writing takes time…
4. Start A Book or Blog
(If the previous one didn’t apply to you) It’s never too late to start a blog. It’s time consuming and a fun activity. I (from experience) would recommend wordpress for getting started right away, but if you’d like a more in-depth, here’s a post called WordPress vs. Wix by my friend Taiya Maddison. She’s a phenomenal blogger (did I mention how great she is??) However, if you don’t want to or can’t start a blog now, start writing a book. It doesn’t have to be long, it could be a short story, picture book or borderline magazine. Whatever you choose, this is a pretty good idea. (I blog and write books).
5. A-Z Love
It’s a game. You can do it with your family or on your own. Simply, go through each family member listing (on paper) what you love about them from A to Z. (Future aid: when you’re upset with them you can read over it. You’ll feel better once you finish)
I don’t journal. Well, I don’t do it often enough to claim it. But it’s a good idea. Make a habit of recoding your life now, so you can look back on it later. (The only reason I’m actually trying).
Oh! Instead of a traditional journal, try out one of those bullet journal thingys. My friends Rebecca did a few posts on how to set them up. I’ll leave the links at the bottom…
7. Something Leisure
Okay, I’m not going to tell you the only way to conserve time is to be busy, because that wouldn’t be being true to myself. I’m laid back, so there definitely has to be some relaxation in my plans….
Do you like strolls? Take a long one! In the park, around your neighborhood- wherever you’d feel safe.
Eat a doughnut. Yes, a doughnut. They are as close to hand held happiness as you get… *munching*. I wouldn’t say eating is relaxing, but eating a sweet treat is especially if you don’t get them often.
Lastly, Hang Out!
Once you’ve done all those, you can now hang out with friends or binge watch Netflix… *yawns* or, sleep.
How do you spend your weekend? Will you try these?
