Ep. 48 Finding Your Magic Hours
In this episode, we’re talking about the time we all have that is JUST for us -- we’re calling them magic hours. These are the pockets of time where you don’t have to take care of anybody else or worry about other people's priorities. Magic hours are completely yours for spending however you like: on creative projects, on your spiritual practice, a side business, or just relaxing with Netflix or a book.
We talk about how to find those hours, use them proactively, and make the most of them. We talk about:
Deciding what your priority is for your magic hours -- how you want to spend them and making a plan for them ahead of time
Managing the transition time between tasks and the trick to jumping right in where you left off
Laura’s amazing tip for keeping your energy up from morning to evening
Finding when you have the most mental or physical energy for the things you want to do
Discerning what prevents you from using that time well
How asking for and claiming help from God makes up the difference between what we’re able to do and enough
