Take the Ten Minute Challenge

Instead of wasting a small amount of time like 10 minutes, take the 10 minute challenge! Try some of the following suggestions when you have a few minutes to kill. You can even get the kids involved by setting a timer and making it a game.

  • Make a list of the first few steps you need to take for a large project and, if you have time, you can start the first step.
  • Make an appointment with the dentist, doctor or other practitioner.
  • Sort through the mail, open everything and discard all the envelopes and non essentials to recycling.
  • Tidy up your email- deleting and filing.
  • Straighten your desk.
  • Look at your schedule for the next month and find a good time that you could see a friend you haven’t seen in a while.
  • Decide on your meals for next week and make a grocery list.
  • Organize your briefcase, purse, book bag, or gym bag.
  • Grab a donation bag or box and look around the room or in a closet for a quick pick of some things you no longer use or love and pass them along.
  • Use commuting time to read a book or learn a new language.

The ten minute challenge is a great way to squeeze a little more activity into your busy schedule!
