This can be a difficult time for many of us as we are all dealing with the outbreak of Corvid-19 better known as the Corona-virus. Some of us have lost our jobs or are working from home. A common theme through all of this is we have a lot more "free" time on our hands. We wanted to take a moment to share a few practical tips that will help you stay busy but also be more intentional in regards to how you spend your day. The one thing we don't want to happen is that we waste time. If this virus is teaching us anything it is teaching us this, we can't control time, we don't have a lot of it so lets make the most of it.
1. Write a Clear Vision for yourself
What do you want to accomplish with your life? What are your dreams, goals and aspirations? What is your life mission? These are just a few questions you can begin to ask yourself to ensure you've created a clear vision for your life. It's important that we use this time to be honest with ourselves about what we want out of this life we've been given.
2. Be Active
We are huge advocates for being active. Whether its working out, cycling, yoga, zumba or dancing, we want to encourage you to take advantage of what you have and be as active as you can possibly be. We have a workout every day at noon on all of our social media accounts and we would love for you to join in.

3. Take Time To Connect
This is an ideal time to connect with family, friends and people who you have been trying to connect with but just haven't had the time to do so. Well, the time is now. There is an immense amount of wealth in relationships and this is a great time to establish and re-establish great relationships.
4. Strengthen your Strengths & Weaknesses
Whatever your occupation, talents and or gifts are, take the time to strengthen them. Fine tune them and learn something new and limit your weaknesses. This is also a great time to take up a skill that interest you.
5. Keep a Clean Space
Spring cleaning anyone? Are there things in your closet or around your home that you haven't worn or used in years? This is a great time to give those things away. Are there any projects you've been wanting to complete but just couldn't find the right time to do so? This is the perfect time to clean those windows, redecorate and rearrange your rooms and re-organize your home/workspace.
6. Be Positive
Making the choice to be positive will really help you enjoy and make the most out of your day. The one thing that's certain, is we don't know how long this will last and having a positive mindset will allow us to make the most out of each and every day.
7. Serve where you are
Rather it be through text, zoom, social media or through your donations, find a way to be of service to someone else.
8. Create A To-Do-List
Plan Your Day
Take the time to plan out your days by creating a daily and or weekly To-Do-List. This will help you prioritize and make the most out of your day.
9. Save Save Save
Financial literacy will help us all if an event like this were ever to occur in the future. Use this time to learn as much as you can about your finances for your future.
