Some days, all you wish for is for your day to be longer and to have a bit more time so that you can finish the things you’ve been wanting to. On busier days, you’ll probably find your to-do lists to be never-ending. When having a moment like this, it is so much easier when you find ways to save some time on your daily tasks.
To help with this task we bring you some ways through which you can save time on your everyday tasks:
1. GET THINGS DONE ON YOUR COMMUTE.
Whether you’re taking the train or driving to work, your commute takes up a significant amount of time that you could be doing anything else. Read, listen to podcasts, look up eateries, pay bills, schedule appointments – anything you can do on your phone to reduce your to-do list. Even listening to a podcast about something you wish to learn or improve on is time well spent.
2. HAVE YOUR PAYMENTS AUTOMATED MONTHLY.
You’ll have one less thing to worry about. Simply double-check your statement to ensure you’re being charged accurately. If you see anything amiss, you can always call your bank to get it corrected. It’s good to know that your payments are paid without your involvement.
3. SIMILAR TASKS SHOULD BE BATCHED TOGETHER.
This is something that can be improved quickly. Learning to group comparable jobs can save you a lot of time. It permits your brain to concentrate on one job at a time rather than switching back and forth. If you have a lot of returns to make, for example, do them all at once. If you have essays to write, blog entries to write, or anything else on your to-do list, this is the place to be. Batching related jobs together makes things a lot easier.
4. RELOAD YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS ON AN AUTOMATIC BASIS.
It’s normal to use apps to keep track of your food shopping dates. Restocking your pantry, on the other hand, can make you worry less about being late. All you have to do is choose an app that suits your needs and then fill up the necessary information.
5. DON’T TRY TO MULTITASK.
For most people, it’s one of the most inefficient ways to spend their time.
According to some studies, multitasking reduces productivity by about 40% – maybe because switching from one activity to another makes it tough to tune out distractions and can produce mental blocks that slow down your progress. Instead:
- Re-learn how to concentrate.
- Use a calendar and make a list of everything.
