The Magic 15


Our recent post, How To Change your Life in 7 Days received many eye-opening E-mail as to how much time getting up 15 minutes earlier each day can add to your life.
In case you missed it, it adds 91.25 hours to your life over a year.
How can you grow and change your life with that little amount of time?
It’s easy to think that 15 minutes can’t impact your life, so ignore it and choose do things like hit the snooze button one more time.
It’s only 15 minutes, right?
But, what if, you got up and devoted that time to change instead?
I want to show you how I have changed my life with just 15 minutes a day and how, once I got into this habit, time expanded for me.
When we don’t value time, understand our values and priorities, or believe in our power to create, we turn our back on 15 minutes a day and label it so ineffective we’d rather sleep it off.
Don’t get me wrong, sleep is very important. In fact, it is the most important thing your body needs for health and vitality. But, you don’t have to lose 15 minutes sleep by getting up 15 minutes earlier. Turn off the TV and go to bed 15 minutes earlier.
Since I started my 15 minutes a day of change, I sleep longer hours
Before you start with the myriad of excuses as to why you can’t get up 15 minutes earlier (I know because I’ve made them), I want you to stop and just believe you can...
It’s only 15 minutes. You can do it, it will change your life and expand your concept of time.

Here are my 15-minute a day tasks:

  • Exercise and wellness ME time
  • Learning
  • Playing Guitar
  • Blogging...

Turn that 15 minutes into 30

Once you’ve turned 5 minutes into 10, and 10 minutes into 15, you’ll turn that into 30 minutes (and then keep going). Then you can start finding 15 minutes in the afternoon/evening too.
Not too long ago, I kept putting off doing yoga and other forms of exercise in the afternoon because I was too busy. I was also too tired, too stressed and too lazy.
One day I decided to do just 10 minutes of yoga. Again, I didn’t think 10 minutes of yoga could really do any benefit. Thankfully, with yoga, you can quickly see some flexibility changes. I moved from barely touching my toes to now having palms face down on the floor.

Get up and do it

Schedule the change in your planner. Set your alarm. Don’t hit the snooze button. Get up and straight into it.
PS: I set my alarm 15 minutes before I intend to get up. And then have an alarm at the time I actually get up. That way I gift myself with one snooze button and an extra 15 minutes of sleep)
