Taking Time to Make Time

It’s true what they say, there’s just not enough hours in the day

I don’t know about you, but I find it very hard to balance my time. When there’s so much going on I usually throw myself into one project and leave the others on the sideline. At the moment I’ve let that happen with my blog. It’s certainly not intentional. But when I’ve got work and college assignments piling up I feel like I shut my blog into a box in the back of my head and try not to think about it.

Don’t get me wrong, I love having a blog but sometimes it’s hard to set aside time for it when I spend most of my days running around like a headless chicken. On Thursday it really hit how much I need to take a step back. I came home completely exhausted and overwhelmed. All I could think of was how much work I had to do, college project due dates that were closing in and the fact that I hadn’t updated my blog in a month.

After a bit of a cry and a cup of tea, I realised things aren’t that bad. What I really need to do is set aside time for each project instead of trying to get everything done at once. I also need to take more breaks. At the moment I’m running in between college and work and not doing much else. Last Tuesday I met Lorna for a coffee and it was so nice to just sit down and chat about nothing and everything for a while. There’s something so therapeutic about turning off for an hour, sitting in a nice cafe and not in front of a computer screen. I’m definitely going to try harder to do this at least once a week. Dan and I even went on our first date night in ages last night, courtesy of Balfes!

I know this isn’t my usual style of post, but I think it’s good to get my thoughts out on a page. Also, if you feel this way sometimes, it’s nice to know you’re not the only one. Let me know if you have any good tips on organising your time, they’d be very much appreciated!

Until next time, which hopefully isn’t as long!
