Finding Time

As the new school year is taking off, we need to remember that time is something that were are given to use wisely.  We have 24 hours in a day. That means that have 1440 min to do something incredible. Everyday we are given this gift. However. Trying to manage that time can seem down near impossible.
So to help with that, here are 5 tips to help use time efficiently:

1. Get enough rest
    You can not function unless you are well rested and able to concentrate. Devote enough time in your day to getting good rest. The amount of sleep each person needs is case specific. Learn how much you need and make it a goal to get the perfect amount.
Remeber: too much sleep can leave you lethargic and even more tired.

2. Eat right and stay healthy
    Try your best to eat the right kinds of foods. It doesn’t need to be a designer, organic brand to be healthy. Believe it or not, but simple foods, such as oatmeal or beans and rice, are chalked full of vitamins and minerals that the body needs. It doesn’t need to be fancy to be good for the body. If these foods are too expensive to buy at the grocer in individually wrapped packages, try buying an off brand in bulk. Save your pennies to get food that will last not just on the shelf but in your stomach. Buy foods that fill you up and keep you full. Try to make sure that the time you spend on food is time well spent.

3.  Always be trying to learn something
     If you aren’t in school or are inbetween classes or teaching homeschooling lessons, see what else you can learn. It doesn’t need to be school related. Maybe you need to find a more efficient way of doing something. Figure it out! Let those around you help. When you involve others, you will find that life can become very entertaining very quickly. Find something that interests you and learn about it. If you don’t know how to do something, learn about it. Become and expert on the topic. Continuous learning helps the brain to focus. Take a break from the typical reading, writing, and arithmetic, and discover something worth while. Pick up a hobby. Learn random facts. With the magic of the internet, there are so many opportunities to learn. All we need to do is utilize the information.

4.  Don’t waste time with endless hours of television
     There is nothing wrong with taking a break from your day and watching a little TV. Sometimes your body needs to stop and just breath for a spell. But don’t let television and computer games rule your day. If you are especially motivated, learn how to multi-task. Work on a project while watching your favorite show; learn to knit, crochet, sew, paint, make cards, jewelery, cook even! Many times when you are able to distract your mind for a period of time, when you return to a task, you are better able to focus.

5.  Make time for the Lord
    He gives you 86,400 seconds in a day. Give him a couple back. Let Him know that you remember Him. Give Him praise. When you are focused on Him, He will make the rest of your load seem more managable. It won’t always change or ease up, but you will feel better about being able to handle it. If you let Him help, you will find more time for accomplishing what needs to be accomplished. You will be focused and ready to complete the tasks that He gives you.
With that, you must also serve Him. How you ask? Help others. It doesn’t need to be anything big. It can be telling someone something kind. If you can make one person feel loved, good. But don’t stop at one. It feels like a lonely world. Change that. “The worth of souls is great in the sight of God.” Don’t squander that. Make feel their worth. Don’t give them the option of not feeling like someone can be kind;even when others arent. Let His Light so shine through your actions.

As the journey from 2012 into 2013 progresses, may you feel His strength upon you. May you find that the challenges we face in life are meant to make us-not break us. May your time be well spent and full of many positive memories and learning experiences.

God Bless you through the journey.
