There are many who argue that time is our greatest resource, I would be
one of those! So below, I outline my top ten tips for managing this
valuable, and limited entity called time.
There’s no doubt, that the person
who sleeps a good 8 hours each night, works for no more than 8 hours a
day, and enjoys the remaining time pursuing exercise and playing with
his/her family and friends is a rarity!
Meeting the Uphams on The Nest was another reminder to me of some of the major barriers there are to better eating for many families. It’s not just knowing what to eat, but having a bank of ideas as to what to cook every night and the kitchen skills to put them into practice.
Why are some people driven to work so hard? Is it the money? And if it is then how much money do these people need before they decide they have enough and they can now ease up the pace?
When I was first approached about being involved in The Nest, Series Producer Paul Rudd clearly explained, “… our objective is to at least leave every family where they are right now, if not help them to improve their current lives”. This had me interested from the very start.
I’ve stopped using the term work life balance; it’s not a good way to
describe what many people in paid work are trying to achieve. Balance
implies that you need to strive for equilibrium; the reality is that
sometimes work takes precedence and sometimes life outside of work -
your family, community activities, sports coaching, whatever - does.
This is the reality of daily life.
