Finding time for hobbies and passions in a slow-paced life

In today's fast-paced world, it can be difficult to find time for hobbies and passions. Between work, family, and other responsibilities, it can feel like there simply aren't enough hours in the day to pursue the things you love. We all know how important creativity and activity is in our lives, but is it realistic? There is good news. With a slower and more intentional pace of life, it is very possible to carve out time for your hobbies and passions and find more fulfillment in your daily routine. Here are some simple practices you can do to help to internationalize your daily routine and carve out some extra time for your hobbies:

  1. Prioritize your time: It's important to prioritize your time and make a conscious effort to set aside time for your hobbies and passions. This might mean cutting back on other activities (even if its for a season) or delegating some of your responsibilities to others. But there is power in choice, and it's important to take ownership of your choices and set time aside to get creative, get outside or simply spend quality time with a loved one. 

  2. Create a schedule: Maybe a daily time slot doesn't work for you quite yet. Set aside a specific time(s) during the week to focus on your hobbies and passions. Create a schedule that allows you to balance your other responsibilities with your interests and make sure to stick to it.

  3. Incorporate them into what you are already doing: Incorporate your interests into your daily routine that you are already pursuing. For example, if you love to read, maybe you can set a book next to your coffee machine and have a few minutes while you wait for your coffee to brew. Maybe you love to draw. Pack a notebook and pencils with your lunch and opt to create during your lunch break. 

  4. Set realistic goals: Don't put too much pressure on yourself to achieve too much too quickly. Set realistic goals and celebrate your progress along the way.

  5. Get support from others: Surround yourself with people who share your interests and passions. Join a group or club related to your hobby, or simply talk to friends and family who can offer encouragement and support. Having a community that supports you can change your life for the better. It resets our priorities and helps us stay on track.

  6. Embrace simplicity: Simplify your life by focusing on the things that truly matter to you. This might mean decluttering your home, reducing your commitments, or simply learning to say "no" to things that don't align with your values and interests.

By following these few simple steps you can find more time and space to pursue the things you love. Whether it's cooking, gardening, painting, or playing music, your hobbies and passions can bring joy and fulfillment to your life. So take a step back, prioritize your time, and start making space for the things that truly matter to you. You might be surprised at how much more satisfying and enjoyable your life can be when you make time for your hobbies and passions.
