Repeat after me: “My time is precious and I will do whatever I can to preserve it.”
How much free time do you have? Something tells me that most of you reading that probably retorted with a “What’s free time?” remark. Some probably can respond with, ” I squeeze in free time when I can”. And a lucky few may be able to say they have at least a solid hour of free time daily. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those lucky few but I’m working on it.
The truth is free time is what people usually have the least of and desperately want more of. Meanwhile, we are all caught up in saving more money. And if you follow any blogs about financial freedom, debt payoff, etc, you know what I’m talking about. They all give you lists upon lists about how to spend less money, save more money, or side hustle to make more money.
While it’s important to save as much money as possible for emergencies, travel, etc., it’s also important to remember that time is the most valuable thing we have. Our time is even more valuable than our money. We should be spending as much time as possible enjoying our lives. I mean, isn’t that why we’re all hustling to save up money, pay off debt and make more? So we can eventually stop wasting time worrying about money and having enough and spend more time doing what makes us fulfilled and happy. And dare I say, have more free time?
Now I’ll be honest; the things on this list aren’t necessarily inexpensive items. Some of them do cost a decent amount of money. However, when you consider how much free time you’ll have as a result, you’ll see that many of these suggestions are worth it.
So check it out and see how much free time you’ll have when implementing some of these suggestions into your life.
