8 Tips For Women To Master Time Management

What is your relationship to time?

Everyone has 24 hours in a day – how are you using yours? How you feel and speak about time? Do you feel like you’re always rushing? Do you feel like there’s never enough time? Do you often go to bed feeling guilty about not getting enough done? You have the ability to change your perception on time and how you manage it. I highly recommend taking a moment and answer these questions in your journal!

Women, did you know that you have two clocks?

Women should not only look at the 24 hour clock, but also their hormonal clock. These two clocks are tightly linked and influence each other. Rethink your relationship with time and time management. The secret lies in keeping your second clock in mind rather than simply adhering to only the 24 hour clock. Your body is not the same every day, so we shouldn't expect to feel or function the same every day.

Here are 8 tips to master your time management:

1. Acknowledge and consider your cycle when planning your time instead of ignoring your cyclical nature

When planning your time, you have two choices: to fight your cyclical nature which can lead to symptoms or work with it which will enhance your energy and mood. If you choose to work with your cycle power, group tasks based on your strengths of the phase of your cycle. You want to focus on managing energy vs time.

2. Take a deep conscious breath for each in between moment

For example, when you arrive to a destination, when you are going from point a to point b, take a moment to breath before transitioning to the next place.

3. Affirmations

Change the way you talk about time. I create time and space to do the things I love. I make the time to take care of myself and connect with myself.

4. Evaluate

Examine what you do each day with your time. Use a time sheet/tracker to examine where you time is going. Possibly use the app timesheet to track the amount of hours you spend doing specific things. Write down everything you currently spend your time on each day.

5. What do you care about?

Write down the top five things you care about and write down what you spend your time doing each day. Then compare the two lists.

6.Top three tasks

Focus on three things, always doing the hard thing first. Possibly do a brain dump and start the three things you need to complete.

7. Accountability

Take responsibility and hold yourself accountable. If you find that you struggle with holding yourself accountable, seek support. Share with your partner, friend, and/or family member what you would like to do. When you tell others, you are more likely to do it. If you need more guidance and support with something, hire a coach that can help you move through blocks and hold you accountable!

8. Release perfection

Oh perfection, how I love your lessons. Perfectionism may arise when it comes to managing your time. Know that you are not alone. Take a deep breath and just do it. One thing at a time. Feel the resistance and do it any! I hope that you found this useful and I wish you well on your growth and transformation journey! I want you to know that you are not alone and you don't have to do this alone.
