3 Ways to Add Value to Your Calendar

It sounds like a no brainer, to create time around what we truly value most. But when it comes to the calendar, more often than not we schedule our time away without much thought about our values. The result? Burnout. Resentment. Lack of motivation. Today’s blog is all about 3 ways to add value to your calendar to cultivate a happier and healthier you!

What Brings You Joy

The first place I want to start is asking your the question of, what brings you joy? If this question is difficult to answer it could be that it has been a moment since you asked yourself that particular question. Remember this is a space of non-judgement but a space to check in.

  • What did you enjoy as a kid?
  • What are some of your hobbies?
  • What puts a smile on your face?

Cultivating Intention

Calendars are often looked at as a to do list. I want you to use it as a space to cultivate some intention to your time by trying these tricks.

  1. Get clear on your top 5 values. What are the things that mean the most to you? Family? Learning? Alone time? Adventure? Quiet time? Friends? A hobby? Your connection to God, source, spirit? Brainstorm away until you arrive at your top 5.
  2. Decide on three values that you want to add into your calendar, and create some intentional time around them. By intentional, I mean, don’t just “fit it in” between appointments. Ask yourself, “What do I really need to do to get this time and make it count?” There may be some prep work involved in getting the time you need.
  3. Agree to it. Do not erase these time slots if something else comes up. If you absolutely must change something, move the event over to another day. Do NOT disregard the value of your joy.

You Are Worth It

Well-being is not a buzz word. It is not a trend; it is a core value that you deserve. When you intentionally make time for you, it opens up so many opportunities for you to create the life that you want. You are worth every second that you spend on you.
