I quite serendipitously came across a fantastic TED talk last night that supports the NY resolution theory I posted earlier this week (you can read about that HERE). In this podcast writer, Laura Vanderkam talks about how we use our time, and explores if we really are as busy as we think we are. She also has such a wonderful perspective on what the time we have should be used for, and I am on board.

The part where she talks about “using bits of time for bits of joy” really just sealed the deal for me. Her approach is reasonable, and grounded, and for ANYONE, not just dreamers or adventurists that will go above and beyond to find their joy.
I looked her up online and found her website and blog where she talks about time tracking, the method she used to explore how we use our time. You can even read along through her 7 day time tracking challenge. The challenge isn’t live now, but you can easily use this method on your own. Go to her site and read all about it!
Even if its not a NY resolution you’re trying to master, I think this method is what we all need to claim a little balance back into our ‘busy’ lives.
