Trying to balance your life between work, family, home, day to day chores and just time to yourself is not easy to achieve.
One of the things that can help is establishing what is important in your life and trying to find the time to enjoy doing the things that you like, which is often easier said than done!
As we are all different personal enjoyment comes in all forms. Some like to relax with a book, a glass of wine, their favourite TV programme, take a walk or spend time in the garden.
Others prefer to spend that time with family or friends; which ever way you like to spend your free time, getting some quality time is all that matters.
Money can play a part in determining how you spend that time, but it doesn’t always have to be expensive.
If you have a garden you will know that 2-3 hours working in the garden can bring its own rewards.
Going for a walk with your partner, family friends or just on your own can give you time to plan things for the future in a more relaxed frame of mind, take some pictures or just enjoy the walk.
If your finances are not too tight you could treat yourselves to a meal out or just make your families favourite meal at home and just take time to relax and spend time together.
You may want to spoil yourself or family by treating yourselves to something as a reward for hard work done either at home or work – perhaps something for the house, garden, a small break or just a book you have been waiting to read for ages.
However you’d like to spend it, it is important to try and make that time for yourself.
In today’s hard financial times it’s easy to lose site of what is important to you, it is important to take some time reevaluate your priorities.
There are lots of articles out there about quality time but we think the most important thing is to find some time to just chill out.
