Ah, time. Time is something that is considered to be more valuable than money, making it a precious commodity that we cannot afford to take for granted in life. After all, it takes time to love someone, earn money, nurture a family, and even save a life.

Once time passes, it’s truly gone forever. That is why we should never waste opportunities to spend quality time with our loved ones – whether it’s attending your son’s cricket game, watching a movie with your husband,  teaching your daughter how to cook or bake, or hanging out in the living room with everybody else.

The profound benefits of spending time with family are backed with many years of research. Some of its most notable benefits are: It strengthens family bonds, builds self-esteem in children, creates bonds, and develops positive behaviours.

A lot of people now put a monetary value on time. By doing this they outsource activites that take time but is cheaper to outsource. This includes hiring a cleaning company to help out with jobs including house cleaning, lawn mowing, and other household tasks.
