Don’t waste Leap Year Day

Do you find yourself saying, “I need more time”? Do you ever wish you had an extra day?

Well, your wish comes true tomorrow because it’s Leap Day.

20160228_081349_resizedThat’s right — an extra day. Or 24 hours, if you prefer. Even better, 1,440 additional minutes.

Most of us will have to work for eight of those hours, but that still leaves 16 hours.

Some of us are sleep deprived, so it’s the perfect day to catch up on slumber and get a full night’s rest.

With those extra hours, you could declutter the room you’ve been telling yourself you were going to clean out once you found some time.

You could work on your novel. (That’s what I’ll be doing!)

Perhaps you need to recalibrate. By this point in the year, most people have abandoned their New Year’s Resolutions. But nobody said you can’t make a Leap Year resolution or develop a plan and action steps to make the plan a reality.

You could volunteer.

Feb. 29 is a great day to take the extra time to spend with family and friends. Why not go out to dinner? Or stay in and play board games? You have the time.

Instead of thinking of Feb. 29 as just another day, why not embrace it and put those 1,440 minutes to good use?

How will you use your extra time?  Let’s come up with at least 29 ways to use the time. Post your idea in the comments section.

    Taking 2 walks instead of 1 sounds like a great use, especially with a forecast of springlike temperatures and sunshine!

    umm.. clean out some of my email folder. Tricky since it is such a assist for my memory — to have the source information to fall back on.
