Did you know that having more time can increase your sense of wellbeing? Consider the following:
Is your to-do list getting longer by the minute?
Are you low on energy caught up with administrative tasks?
Is your inbox full of unread messages?
How is your diary? Is it back to back with endless meetings? Do you have all your documentation to hand?
Is your social media presence suffering as you simply don’t have the time to update it?
Are you behind with paying your suppliers?
Are you working late again tonight to complete a proposal?
When was your client and prospect database last updated?
Do you find yourself working in the business and not on it?
Do these sound familiar? If you look down the list it doesn’t take much to realise how much time you spend – or don’t spend on these time-consuming tasks. A virtual assistant can help expand your potential, keep you focused and drive your business.
Recently a two-part experiment was run in Canada. First the participants were asked to spend £30 on a purchase that would save them time. Next they were told to spend the money on material goods. The research concluded that time saving compared with material purchases increased happiness by reducing feelings of time stress.
Psychologists say stress over lack of time causes lower wellbeing and can contribute to anxiety and sleepless nights. However, even though people can afford it, they remain reluctant to pay for help. Less than a third of adults questioned, spent money in this way, but those that did, reported greater happiness. "In a series of surveys we find that people who spend money to buy themselves more free time are happier - that is, they have higher life satisfaction", said Dr Elizabeth Dunn, a psychologist professor at the University of British Columbia, Canada.
