Step #3 @Home

Did you know the average American spends 20 hours a week watching TV? Leisure Time should make you feel happy and rejuvenated, not tired and depressed. To live a full life you need some rules for leveraging your downtime:

  1. Choose some activities that make you happy (exercise?)
  2. Block Time off in your schedule
  3. Make it meaningful by committing enough time to these activities
  4. Involve your family

The next question you are going to ask is, “How do I do this?”

  1. Get rid of your TV
  2. Plan ahead

We live in a world full of distractions and quite frankly it can be exhausting trying to keep. Treat your downtime seriously and refill your tank of will power each morning. Then, the challenges of the day won’t stand a chance, whether you are at work or @ Home.
