This time of year, approaching the holidays, it seems like life clicks into turbo mode and there is no end to the things to do and places to go.
Before the holiday crush, consider doing a Time Audit and/or an Energy Budget. These two exercises can help you stay realistic with your time and energy when life gets hectic.
- A time audit is like creating a monetary budget – you have your “ideal” schedule/budget, but it may not align quite with reality. Doing the audit can help you set realistic expectations on what you can accomplish through the end of the year.
- An energy budget can help you recognize your natural energy cycle highs and lows so that you can plan events and projects to support yourself. This can help you greatly as an aspect of self-care, which can easily fall by the wayside this time of year.
