Managing our time well is essential for our overall well-being. It's about being in control of our time and using it in a way that positively impacts our physical and mental health - this is what we call "time wellness." A recent study published in the Academy of Strategy Management Journal found that people who feel in control of their time have lower stress levels and greater overall satisfaction with their lives.

In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to waste our most precious resource by spending it on meetings, events, and tasks that don't align with our goals and intentions. That's why it's important to take a step back and evaluate how we spend our time. Reflect on our days and ask ourselves, "Did we spend our time well today?" By understanding where we spend most of our time, we can make changes to improve it.

To achieve time wellness, it's important to strike a balance between our personal and professional lives. We should focus on activities that add value to us and our work, and not waste too much time on things that don't matter.

Remember, a few bad days doesn't mean we're failing at time management. Sometimes it's a sign that we need to take more control of our days or take a break. By being mindful of how we spend our time and making conscious decisions about how we allocate it, we can improve our overall well-being and lead a more satisfying life.
