Most people would raise their hand to receiving more time…! While we don’t have control over the number of hours in each day, how we spend the time is completely up to us. Let 2018 be your year for adapting time management techniques to enhance your lifestyle.
Below are 4 Time Management tips to implement throughout your day:
1. Boost your brain with Cognitive Training Exercises
We definitely want to keep a sharp mind. Through engaging in cognitive training exercises, your intellectual capacity is challenged.
Examples include learning a new language, boardgames, taking an alternate route on your walk, using your opposite hand or sleeping on the other side of the bed!
A sharp mind helps to boost brain power when it comes to being productive within your day
2. Sprint with your Tasks
We know about Interval Workouts – well, apply this to your to-do list. 25 minute blocks works best for me! This technique is most successful when focusing on a very small amount of tasks with zero distractions.
3. Batch Tasking
Schedule blocks of time in your calendar to focus on a singular project, admin work, or whatever is required. If you’re using an electronic calendar eg: Google Calendar, allocate a specific colour so it stands out in your diary.
4. Less Thinking, more Action
If you find you’ve thought about something more than 3 times and still not tackled it, move it to the top of your to-do list and ensure you take action.
Thinking about what needs to be completed often takes longer than actually doing it…!
Taking a notable approach to managing your time effectively will allow you more time to do the things you love!!
