Many of us are so busy, it feels like we barely have a chance to sit down and rest. Even so, it still seems like there are always things that don’t get done. There must be a way to get more hours out of the day! Well, technically, there isn’t, but there are things you can do to save time each week. Here are a few to keep in mind:
Make a list of things you need to get done and figure out the most efficient ways to do them. That way, when some free time comes your way, you can jump right in and get started on them.
If you need to do work on your computer, consider getting a laptop. That way, you can work almost anywhere.
Turn Off Your Phone
You would probably be horrified to learn just how much time you spend each week looking at social media. Turn off your phone at several points in the day and just concentrate on the job at hand. If you have to turn off your phone and put it in another room, then do so.
Cook for Many, Even If It is Just You
We can spend a lot of time preparing meals, so why not spend a little extra time one or two days, and then no time the rest of the week? Make a large portion of one or two meals and then freeze the rest, which you will then eat over the course of the next few days.
Get More (and Better) Sleep
It is hard to overestimate the importance of a good night’s sleep. If you are tired, you not only work more slowly but also with less and less accuracy. Try your best to get 7-8 solid hours of sleep every night.
