Coach's Thoughts

Your priorities are reflected in how you choose to spend your time.

Conducting a time audit can be an invaluable exercise for anyone seeking to optimize their daily routine. Do you often find yourself wondering where your time has gone, or feeling unproductive at the end of the day?

You work hard to earn a living, possibly for yourself and your family. You hit the gym to maintain your health and promote a long, active life. But what about the other aspects of your life? Are you losing precious hours to excessive TV watching, negative self-talk, or constant phone use?

It can be eye-opening to review your phone's screen time statistics. Regardless of whether you use your phone for work or leisure, you can delve deeper into the specific apps and activities that consume most of your time. Consider the benefits of reallocating just 10-20% of that screen time to more productive tasks, such as meal prepping or personal development. How much closer would you be to achieving your goals? How much simpler could your life become?

Action Item

Go ahead and check your screen time on your phone. I've even got some help articles for ya:

Apple | Android

Now take that total number and try to drop it by 10%.

That wraps up this month's newsletter! As always, if there's anything you'd like to chat about, or if you want me to write/talk/video about, just reply and let me know! If you think a friend would like this, please forward it along to them as well.
