One Hour to a More Productive You!


Busy. Busy. Busy.

That can accurately describe my life for the past two weeks. After I put my daughter down for her nap and was enjoying the silence of the house; I realized that it had been two weeks since I have heard that silence.

Having the house to myself before my children wake up is one thing, but to sit in a quiet house while the sun shines through the windows is completely different.

As a busy mom and wife, I know how fast the day goes. Ideally, I should have all the time in the world, especially as a stay-at-home mom. Truth is, life happens.

So what happens if you find yourself with an extra hour to spare? Most people would pull out their phones or mindlessly be vegging in front of the television. However, you can be productive even on a limited free time.


How does one find time to be productive in one hour? On which areas should one focus on?

How about all of them?

In order to be productive you must focus on four main areas.

  1. Spiritually: Spending time with the Lord is the only way to have a relationship with Him, find peace, grow in wisdom, and find forgiveness.
  2. Physically: You must take the time to exercise your body on a regular basis.
  3. Emotionally: Taking the time to do what you find fun will revitalize you.
  4. Mentally: Your mind needs a daily break from life.


Making it Work

Make it a priority to be productive, even with one hour a day!Β  If you have a timer and one free hour, you can be productive!

  1. My kids are grown, but I am a different kind of busy. However, there are days where I need to be reminded to turn up the productivity. My husband works from home and because he is on conference calls or working on issues I can’t do all the things I want to do because we don’t have a designated office for him, but I love your simple idea of setting a timer when I can be productive. I’m starting that this week! One of the things I have been faithful about is walking for an hour. This has helped me tremendously for my writing and sanity!

    1. I am a routine person, if I do not follow some sort of routine I aimlessly wander. My routine holds me accountable and more productive at the end of the day

  2. Good food for thought here and on the pdf you attached! I like the idea of setting a timer for 15 minutes and doing productive things! πŸ™‚ Something i really struggle with when daughter is sleeping is just wanting to sit around and not be productive so i’m gonna try your method!

    1. Knowing I have only have to do something for 15 minutes, makes it easier for me to accomplish something.

  3. Having children has really changed my perspective on how much I can get done in fifteen minutes let alone an hour! It’s amazing how much can be accomplished during a one hour nap πŸ˜‰ great post!

  4. It’s incredible how prioritizing and remaining focused can multiply our productivity! And I totally agree about the silence in the middle of the day with sun streaming in! It’s a surreal moment that occurs only occasionally here! πŸ™‚
