Put Time on Your Side

by Jeff Rochford 04/14/2019

Time... a non-renewable resource. Spending time, wasting time, bidding your time, you can do all of these things but make more time; No! Since you can't make more time, then you have to allocate time, doing things that create the life you want for yourself. If you have a significant other or a child then you know spending time with them is imperative. Time spent with each other not only builds those relationships but can also improve your overall health. 

Time to Connect 

Now, remember you have a job, or a few jobs, that demand hours out of your day. You also have to take care of essentials such as paying bills, groceries, and taking care of your health. Whatever is left is what you have to invest in the relationships, specifically that significant person. Fitting in blocks of time together can be difficult, but creates, or strengthens the relationship. So, you need to get creative. Be mindful about making opportunities to do the mundane together. Meeting between appointments or activities to touch base is not enough for most relationships. Shopping for the groceries or detailing the vehicles can become wonderful times to relate to each other. Taking a simple walk together enjoying each other’s company and the world around you is a great way to spend your time. It doesn’t always have to be a well-executed date night with dinner and entertainment. Just sitting in the same room while planning the weekly schedule can bring a sense of connection. Making your time together count is the goal. 

Time Away to Connect

Time away from the static grind of daily life is an investment in a relationship. Planning time together outside of the normal stress of living gives you a place to relate on another level entirely. Creating memories of fun and relaxing moments carry with them a bond that can help during times of turbulence or stress. Being able to take the time to really listen to the other person and ask more in-depth questions about themselves and their hopes for their future. Setting up your environment so that it enables you to stop for a moment in time, to really have time on your side. 

As the Steve Miller Band song states, “Time keeps on slipping into the future.” so, make your present count.
