Time Management With Ease (Part 1)
Living a life full of work pressures and deadlines in the present world of busy lifestyles and challenging relationships can be very stressful for many people at times. What should one do to remain free from stress and at the same time keep one’s efficiency at the highest? Whenever one starts a new task, it is important to take care of a few important things.
E.g. if I am a project leader in my office, I need to analyze, apart from the various tasks of my work, many other aspects. The first and most important aspect is time planning, which means I know exactly how I will complete all the different aspects of the project successfully. I have to do this within the time frame I have at hand. A very important aspect of time planning is how I keep my thoughts as less as possible. This is because the more the thoughts that I have in my mind, the more time it will take me to finish any task. It is commonly experienced that by practicing simple techniques like meditation to silence the mind, work efficiency can be increased. That means more work will get done in less time. A simple method of relaxing the mind is stopping my work after every hour and performing a thought traffic control of the mind. Traffic control means creating few positive thoughts of different types of qualities like peace, love and happiness or even characteristics like success, victory and faith. You can do this for a minute and then continue working. This will keep you focused and charged mentally for the next one hour. This is a principle of the mind and its connection with the body. The more peaceful the non-physical mind, the more efficient the physical body will be in performing actions correctly.
