For most of us these days, it seems like there are never enough hours in the day for us to get everything done. Between her responsibilities at work, at home, and with friends and family, it can be tough to find time to even relax, let alone tackle other projects.
Fortunately, if you plan everything correctly, there are ways to free up a few minutes here and there and this will lead to some substantial time savings for you. Try some of the following strategies:
The best and most efficient way to tackle any project is to plan ahead. Whenever possible, try to map out your day in as much detail as you can; this will make it easier to know how much time you have to accomplish things and how much time might be left over. Think about things you can do during those spare periods and plan them in such a way that you can start and finish them as time efficiently as possible.
Turn off your smart phone
Our smart phones can be a wonderful aid, but as the kids today say, they can also be a tremendous time suck. You would probably be shocked to learn just how much time you spend looking at that phone each day. Try turning it off and, if you are still succumbing to temptation, put it away in another room.
Streamline your cooking
Many of us do not eat as well as we should due to the time involved in preparing meals. Set aside some time on the weekend and prepare all of your main courses for the week on that one day. Refrigerate and freeze portions that you can then eat on each subsequent night. That way, when you get home from work, you just have to put something in the microwave.
