Gain More ‘Me Time’ by Trying These Time Management Tips

Productivity, Work-Life Balance

There are only so many hours in the day and only you can decide what you spend your time on. Of course, you’ll want to spend your time on things that add value to your life… but life tends to get hectic – fast. With balancing our work life and home life, most of us struggle to find time for ourselves. Here are a few techniques that could help simplify how you work, ensuring that your tasks get done more efficiently and giving you more time to spend on your hobbies or self-care.

Organize your work around your energy levels

Your productivity levels are directly related to your energy levels, so schedule your hardest tasks for when your energy levels are at their highest. Any low-value tasks that require little energy, such as responding to emails, can be scheduled for the times when your energy levels are lower.

Make a plan for the day

There are so many experts who recommend this. Before you go to bed, write a to-do list for the next day because when you plan ahead, you’re mentally preparing yourself for any challenges you may face. This will also help to limit procrastination at the start of the day and ensure that you work more efficiently.

Start your day with your most important tasks

When you start the day off by completing your priority items, you’ll have a feeling of accomplishment and you’ll give yourself a boost of momentum for working through the rest.

You can’t do it all

You don’t have to complete every task yourself… in fact, sometimes you can’t. Don’t be afraid to outsource. It’s a good idea to get some things off your plate so you can focus on tasks that require more of your attention.

Automate repetitive tasks and make your life easier

There are so many tools to help you save time by setting up a range of tasks like scheduling your social media posts, creating canned email responses, bookkeeping, and sending invoices.

Cut down on distractions if you can

When you are distracted, it can take a while to get your focus back and can limit your productivity. Try turning off the notifications on your phone for set time intervals, invest in a pair of headphones, and don’t get caught up scrolling through social media – dedicate a set time for that.

Try any of these techniques and once you find what works best for your situation, use them daily. Your productivity will increase saving you precious time to do what matters most to you!
