A local firm is calling on the people of Edinburgh to ‘credit crunch themselves’.
Catherine Lazcano-Thornton, MD of Edinburgh’s Zest Lifestyle Management, is urging busy workers to evaluate the ‘cost’ of their own personal time, and decide if their ‘me time’ budget has been well spent.
“Many of our lifestyle management clients are using our home services to tear up that to do list so they can ’spend’ their me time doing things that are more important to them.”
“I’m asking people to look at whether their time would be better spent waiting in for the gas man, at the dry cleaners, supermarket, planning birthday parties etc, or relaxing with friends/family, using up that gym membership or having time for a hobby.”
“Our own time is becoming the most expensive part of the household budget to manage, and we should all look for ways to get the most benefit from our non-working lives,” says Catherine.
Workers in the capital are being challenged to credit crunch their own time by adding up the number of hours spent working on home related tasks, in addition to working hours. Many people find that not only is the work-life balance very out of synch, but also their plan to ‘have it all’ – satisfying job AND excellent home life – seems to be unreachable because there aren’t enough hours in the day.
Zest Lifestyle Management offers a long list of services to help people to have the time to live their lives, and to spend more of their ‘me time’ budget doing the things they enjoy. Services including dog walking, catering, personal shopping, waiting in for deliveries, event planning, cleaning, gift wrapping and diary management.
