Time Management

time management

Learning how to make life changes that allow us to manage our time is important to healthy living. Better managing your time leads to less stress and more time doing what you love. In 2011, I made a major life change when I quit my job and started my own business. Now I control my time and enjoy traveling with my husband, Keith.

My goal for this section is to provide tips so you can do the same.

Technology makes it easier for us to tackle our ever growing to-do lists. Sometimes technology is more of a time stealer and takes away our ability to live in the moment. When I am spending precious time with my mom, she often admonishes me with a, “Can’t you put your phone down for two seconds?”
