Find Time by Maintaining Your Time Boundaries with a Timer

Timer2Why are your time boundaries important?

Well, your efforts to find time are greatly enhanced when you know how much time you have planned for your activities AND you stick to your plan! If you don’t do that, one activity after another will overrun its allotted time. And then you will fall further and further behind.  What a recipe for stress and frustration!

It doesn’t have to be that way, though.  Not at all!

Your Time Boundaries 101 –Try this:

Buy yourself a small timer. When you can, use it to remind you when the time allotted for a planned task has run out. This is especially helpful for things like computer work. It’s so easy to get caught up in tasks and lose track of time.

I find using a timer to be a very big help when it comes to focus. It allows me to really immerse myself in whatever I am working on. And I don’t worry about losing track of time.  I know that the beeping of my timer will bring me right back to the moment when my time is up.  Then I’ll move on to my next task.

Your timer helps you focus.

When I use my timer to help me maintain my time boundaries I am more focused and productive, without a doubt.  Sticking to my planned boundaries also enhances my self-trust.  I (and the others in my world) know that when I set a boundary I am going to follow through on it.  This gives a boost to my self-discipline and self-esteem. It als enhances the cooperation that I receive from others when I communicate a boundary.

There are just so many ways to benefit from using this small, practical tool!

Stay tuned for more, TOMORROW, from Finding Time about boundaries and the ways that using them can improve things in your world.
