How To Free Up Your Time, Do More Stuff And Enjoy Your Daily Life Consciously

People are often complaining that they wish the day was longer so that they would have more free time.

It got me thinking : are the days really too short, or do we simply fail to use the time that we have properly ? This prompted me to start thinking about ways to save up more time and use the time I have more to my pleasures and enjoyment. Starting this day, I will be writing short articles like this one, in each of them briefly discussing one thing I believe could help achieve this goal.

The first thing that came to my mind is movies/TV series/sit-coms/etc.

I’m sure there are tons of people who, upon finding out about an interesting new thing to watch, will download the whole package : if they hear of a new interesting TV series such as Lost or Dexter, they will download the whole first season (or perhaps even all seasons). If they hear of an interesting actor, they will download all the movies with that actor. If they see an interesting movie, they will download all other parts of that movie and sometimes even extra related materials.

What this does, however, is it makes it extremely easy for us to watch a whole lot in one session. We start watching the first episode of a show, for example. When the show is over, we will immediately want to watch the second episode a lot of the times, because we are still full of awe and enjoyment, so we want more of it. Some video players actually automatically start for you the second episode of a show as soon as the first one is over, so you don’t even have a chance to say “no thanks!” :)

  1. I admit I tend to get hooked on certain shows and love when the marathons come on. However, I suddenly realize that I wasted a whole day. If this happens oocasionally I don’t think it’s a big deal, but like the rest of your life you appreciate the small things and get happiness from it. Too much of a good thing can be bad, even if its something you love. Moderation is a great thing to practice.
