Imagine what you would do if you could save more time for yourself. You would probably use this time to do something you love. It’s those special moments that we can enjoy and remember forever. But it can be difficult to find this time when we have lots of commitments. You don’t know what to sacrifice to find some precious free time. Here are three ideas that you can use to gain yourself some extra special time!
According to Techjury, an average social media user in 2020 was spending 2hrs 24mins every day. It might not seem like a lot, but when you start multiplying it over a week or a month, the time can add up. One of the easy and quick ways to save some valuable time is to moderate your social media use. Note, you don’t have to stop it, just lower the amount of time you spend on it.
What did you do before social media?
If you are old enough to remember a time before social media, you will know there are plenty of other things you can do. Also, for a younger generation, taking a break from the mobile can help you gain some free time to disconnect and relax. When you relax, your body and mind can take a welcome rest and reset themselves. It’s the perfect way to give yourself a boost.
Tip 2 – Put Some Daily Tasks Together
You might enjoy exercising but never seem to find the time to do it every day. Most of us have to work, and you still want to see family and friends in your free time. But how about combining the two, so you can free up more time? It’s a great way to get fit and catch up on all the news with a family member or your best friend.
You could call them your exerbuddy!
Next time you try to fit exercise into your day, phone up your relative or bestie and make an exercise date. You can gain time and feel accomplished at the end of the day. You will have shared your news and exercised your body. It’s a great way to get ahead of the game and make you feel optimistic!
Tip 3 – Use A Morning and Night Routine To Save More Time
There are 24 hours in one whole day/night. But are you using them to your advantage? A morning routine can help you get your day off to a solid start. By the time you start your day proper or your work, you will have already finished many of your tasks. So instead of hitting 11 am and wondering how you will fit everything in, you are already there. Hurrah!
Use routines to make yourself more productive and gain time.
You can also use a night routine for the same time boost. You can put all your night chores together so that you can go to sleep without stress. When you plan your time for the next day, you can look back and see how effective your routines have been. Your to-do list will be smaller in the middle of the day, and you will find some special time for yourself.
