- Give priorities priority. There are some responsibilities that just can’t be ignored, if you waste too much time doing chores of lessen importance instead of doing something that matters then you can run the risk of feeling bad at the end of your day.
- Plan your day. This is the simplest tip you will hear, planning your day can give insight on the things you need to do. When someone is aware of the time needed to do important tasks they will be more inclined to do them, this is because they can assign an hour of their day to accomplish them. Plan your day in the morning or the night before, ask yourself which things you want to do and which you need to do, assign a time of the day to do them but be sure to give yourself a margin of error.
- Use reminders. Even with some careful planning we can still miss some errands if we outright forget them. Try using something to remember yourself to do what you wanted to do.
Post-it notes are famous for being using as reminders, you can write down tasks and stick them in a visible part of your house, these notes are very persuasive so if you’re not living alone they might convince someone else to share some of the house responsibilities.
But in the event you are always moving from one place to another then you should use your smartphone instead, there are many useful applications that can act as your virtual assistants.
- Be more aware of the time spent online. Checking your email and your social networks might seem like some quick things you do every now and them, but the time spent on them add up quickly.
