Balance is an essential part of life. Work and family keep us busy, but it is important to make time for things that benefit our health and our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Setting aside time for the things you love has been shown to help alleviate daily stress. Activities like sports, exercise, hobbies, and meditation give us a chance to take a break, focus on something else, learn, and grow. In turn, other areas of your life improve, including your work performance and relationships.
Here are just three of the reasons to make time for the things you love:
When you do the things you love every day, your mood and motivation get a boost. Making time for the activities you enjoy gives you something to look forward to. And when you’re having a tough day, having that time to do something fun can give you some time to clear your mind and reset your day.
When you make time for the things you love, you’re able to expend more time and energy on those around you. This quality time leads to stronger relationships. At the same time, inviting a friend or family member to join you for your workout, hobby, or activity can also strengthen those bonds. You’ll enjoy a shared connection over something that you both might really enjoy together.
Another reason to set aside time for the things you love is that it increases productivity. Time spent on something you enjoy makes you more engaged with what you’re doing. Your effort and commitment lead to increased productivity. You feel more motivated to get things done.
Even in the midst of challenges and uncertainty, try to make time for the things you love.
