Make time for your family

No matter how busy life gets, it’s important to make time for your family, both immediate and extended. 

There is an abundance of excuses that come into play and you may have let your priorities slide. But that’s okay. The truth of the matter is that you can readjust your priorities to make time for your family. It’s just a matter of thinking how. 

But I’m too busy

This is an excuse as old as time itself. Are you really busy? Or are you just saying and thinking you are? How we manage time often comes down to our priorities and what we value the most.  

It can be a good idea to have a look at all your commitments and the time they take. Are you filling your diary with things you should be doing, or are they commitments you think you should be doing? There is a vast difference.  

Commitments you should be doing are those that are essential for your life. These include running your franchise or business, caring for your family, looking after your health, being social and nurturing hobbies and interests. 

Commitments you think you should be doing are those activities you only complete because you believe it’s the thing to be done. They’re not a priority in your life and they often eat into time that could be spent on actual priorities, like your family.

Schedule your time

A great way of managing your time is to create a calendar or schedule for everything! You should already have a schedule for your franchise or business, but by adding all your other commitments into the mix, you can visualize what time you have remaining and how you would like to fill it. 

Make time for your family

It’s important to schedule family time into your life. These are the people you are slogging out the hard yards for, so ensure you make time to see and enjoy their presence. 

Calendar family time into your schedule for both your immediate and extended families. This could be planning a weekly family night, or a monthly extended family gathering. 

In five years’ time, you won’t regret the hours you set aside for your family. In fact, you’ll probably be very grateful.
