Step-By-Step Guide To Audit Your Free Time

Auditing your free time can help you ensure that you're spending it in a way that aligns with your values and priorities. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to audit your free time:

1. Set your goals and priorities: Before you can audit your free time, you need to know what you want to achieve. Think about your short-term and long-term goals and what's important to you. This will help you prioritize your activities and make sure you're spending your time in a way that aligns with your values.

ADDED TIP: Healthy amount of free time to allow for yourself is 3.5hrs a day

Studies show that any free time exceeding the 7hr threshold starts negatively impacting your mental health

2. Track your time: Keep a journal or use a time-tracking app to record how you're spending your time each day. Track everything you do, from work and household chores to leisure activities like watching TV or scrolling through social media.

3. Analyze your data: Once you've tracked your time for a week or two, look at your data and see how you're spending your time. Identify any patterns or trends that emerge. For example, do you spend a lot of time on social media or watching TV? Are there any activities that you're not doing enough of?

4. Evaluate your activities: Look at each activity you're spending time on and evaluate whether it's helping you achieve your goals and aligns with your values. Ask yourself questions like, "Is this activity contributing to my personal growth?" and "Am I enjoying this activity or is it just a time-waster?"

5. Make changes: Once you've evaluated your activities, make changes to your schedule to align it better with your goals and values. This might mean cutting back on activities that don't serve you or finding ways to make leisure activities more fulfilling and rewarding.

6. Monitor your progress: Keep tracking your time and periodically review your schedule to see if it's still aligned with your goals and values. Adjust your schedule as needed to ensure that you're making the most of your free time.

By following these steps, you can audit your free time and ensure that you're spending it in a way that's meaningful and fulfilling. Remember, your time is a valuable resource, and how you spend it can have a significant impact on your life.
