Community is where we live. It’s where we shop, go to school, work, and raise our families. Wanting to spend more time involved with your community is not only good for you but for everyone around you.
Here are some tips on how to prioritize your time in your community.
The next step is to tell people what you’re doing! Communicate your shift to everyone you trust that will be affected by them, your family, friends, team, boss, etc. Work with them to put an actionable plan together that can help you achieve your goals. Not only will this let people know what you are trying to accomplish, but they can help hold you accountable when you waver.
As you’re making your shift to spend more time giving back to your community, remember that doing all this doesn’t mean that you can keep or increase your responsibilities. Make sure that you are splitting up your responsibilities at home. Perhaps you wash up after meals and your partner cooks. Or you clean up the kitchen while your partner helps the kids with their homework. The idea is to use your support network to help take the load off where it is too heavy or isn’t wanted so you can focus where you would like to be.
