As we get older, it becomes more challenging to make time for our hobbies and passions. Between work and family, it can be hard to justify any alone time, especially when it comes to indulging in personal activities or interests. Here are some tips to help you integrate your passion into your everyday life.

Include your family. Nothing brings a family together more than shared interests. If your passion pertains to outdoor activities, this can be a great way to get your children involved in something you enjoy. Sharing a past time with your spouse can also be a great way to bond and can even double as date night! By getting your family involved, you are significantly increasing the odds that you will have time for your passion.

Any time is a good time. With the kids in school and their activities, you are likely to have some free time in between work and shuffling them around to squeeze in some time for yourself. While they are at practice or music lessons, you could get in a quick run, volunteer nearby, or anything you choose, turning your wait time to your advantage. Any spare moments in your day, no matter how small, can be used to cultivate what you love!

Be open about what you want. It is essential to let the people in your life know that your passions and hobbies are integral to your happiness. By expressing your wants and needs to those you care about, you are making it much easier to accomplish quality time devoted to something you love. This way, they can help make sure that you get the time you need to grow your passions.

It is so easy to let the joy in your life fall to the wayside to work on life’s responsibilities, but you don't have to choose one or the other. With a little compromise, working in some much needed time for your passions can be easier than you think and more beneficial than you realize!
