Simple changes, big results… I’m Gonna Get Me a Watch

Simple changes, big results… I’m Gonna Get Me a Watch

Funny old thing time, you either have it or you don’t. I don’t these days. That’s the long and the short of it,  I’m always rambling on that there isn’t enough hours in the day or I just don’t have the time as I charge around the house at the end of the day putting away washing and mentally trying to work out how much work I need to complete before bed time.

I’m my own worst enemy as not being organised is my downfall followed closely by a lack of self-discipline. I start each day with the best intentions, but as I work from home, it only takes me checking my phone and I’m down in a rabbit hole of answering emails or messages, already chasing my tail as I try playing catch up to get ready, then running out of the door in a fluster.

I’m pretty much always late these days too, and I hate that. If I’m running late I can feel the stress building up and that’s one area I really try keep in check. I’ve got this firm belief that stress is a huge precursor for many illnesses and I simply don’t have the time to be ill!

So what’s my plan?

It’s simple, I’ve started wearing a watch, a nice fancy day-to-evening Marc Jacobs number (heavily reduced at Plus Watches as luck would have it.) I chose to go bling-bling in the hope that something stunning wrapped around my wrist will encourage me to keep looking subconsciously checking on my time in an effort not to be late. Something eye-catching, that was my plan.

Why I ever gave up wearing a watch I'll never know. I'm so much more aware of time now; organised me is back!
And it’s working, mainly because I love pretty things, I’m like a magpie. I was thinking of going down the fitness tracker watch route but my gorgeous little sparkly rose gold number makes me feel just as good as clocking how many steps I’ve taken would’ve. I’m so much more aware of time now; where I need to be, how much time I’ve got and just being a super wiz bang organised lady.

Why I ever gave up wearing a watch I’ll never know, and the best thing is, I can put my phone down a little more, even leave it at home if the kids are with me. I can feel my iPhone addictions slowly loosening the reins as I have one less thing to rely on it for.

And it all started by a good old-fashioned wrist watch!

    Oh it’s been a long time since I wore a watch ! Like you ,I do find time escapes me and before I know it it’s 12am and I’m still folding clothes or doing dishes. I do hate that I’ve to take my phone out to check the time and it is a distraction more than anything else.
    Your watch is fab by the way.
    I think I may have found my Christmas gift from me to me !!!!

    That’s a pretty watch! I don’t wear one – even before it was the norm to have your phone with you so you could tell the time, I’ve always been able to guess what time it is! And yes, where does the time go – I often find it hard to manage it, too!

    What a beautiful watch! I got a watch for my birthday last year, but then I got a Fitbit for Christmas and now I can never decide which one to wear, lol.

    That watch is gorgeous! I miss having one. I used to feel naked without a watch, and then when I returned to work after maternity leave I broke 2 in the space of a week. I got so fed up, that I didn’t want to buy a new one! It’s definitely something I miss though…I hate having to check my phone constantly, or being reliant on someone else to tell me the time.

    What a gorgeous watch, I love Rose Gold and hope it helps you not to be late.

    I think checking social media can be the quickest way to lose some time! I would love a nice watch, this one is beautiful.

    Since I stopped working in an office I don’t wear a watch, but I think I might dig out my old watch and get a new battery fitted this weekend x
