The Difficulty Of Managing Your Time Effectively
It can sometimes be very demanding to manage your time now days. It feels as though there are just so many things to be done in so little time, the 24 hours that we have been allotted to every day just does not seem to be enough! How can we as individuals manage our time effectively without also sacrificing the commitments that we have as well as the things that we love to do? How can we prioritize our time when we have a large family and must also give them the time that they need and deserve? There are so many things that could be forfeited when managing our schedule therefore it is very important to come up with a strategy that is efficient and effective as well.
How To Start Your Day Right
From the morning time that we wake up we must first have a strategy in mind. We would have either planned the day the night prior or could plan it first thing in the morning depending on when we wake up and depending on how much time we actually have. It is important to have a diary, journal or agenda handy at all times so that we can take not of our schedule for the day and see what can be omitted or added. Try at all cost to avoid touching your cell phone first thing in the morning. It is true that your alarm is actually on your cell phone therefore you have no choice but to touch your cell phone to switch off your alarm but resist the tendency to verify you WhatsApp, Facebook, or Instagram status. What this means is that you are waking up with a mindset of responding to your messages when you should wake up with a mindset to either madidate, do some deep breathing, yoga or even exercise before actually starting your day. It is not easy to resist the temptation, but it is definitely a good practice for all. Once you get yourself ready and have dressed up, take some time to eat before you leave the house. Your breakfast is a very important part of your meal, so try at all cost to have a little something before leaving.
How To Be Efficient At Work
With a long day ahead of you in front of the computer do not forget your blue blocker sunglasses. They will come in handy when sitting in front of your computer screen for hours. On your way to work you may choose to play the radio or listen to some type of meditation music or speech, it is really up to you. When you get to work it is important to plan your word day as well. Create a schedule, do not just go with the flow otherwise you risk wasting your day away. Take the time to go through you physical (not in your head) schedule and tick off every task that you accomplish one at a time. You will see that by the end of the day you were very productive and that you successfully completed all the tasks on your list. Once again, keep all distractions to a minimum. This would include; your cell phone, social media, browsing through the internet and more. Try at all cost to keep all of those distractions to a minimum.
