How Does Time Management Impact Weight Control?

When you take a step back and think about the various people you know personally as friends, relatives or business colleagues, there are clearly differences in “time management” skill sets. We all know people that seem to take 3X as long accomplishing their work than more “efficient” people. Perhaps focus/attention is a component of this and more and more I have people coming in for medical appointments requesting ADD medications.

Think for a bit about your own “time management”: Many of you may be on that crazy schedule of taking care of kids/spouse, commuting to work, having gobs of work thrown at you, commuting home, running kids to post-school activities, dinner preparation, helping with home work and then some house hold chores. How can anyone manage time when many tasks need to be completed?

One of the main “needs” for successful long-term weight control is allowing time for planning meals, shopping for compatible foods, exercising etc. Weight gain requires NO planning, NO focus and certainly, NO need for time management. Controlling weight? This is an entirely different story.

Take some time (ha, ha) to assess your own time management and see what steps you may take to improve this. More effective time management will translate into more weight control success.
