Are you one of those people who is always running late? Maybe you get to the end of your day and feel like there just wasn’t enough time to get everything done you needed to. If you wish you had some time management tricks to make the day seem just a little longer, this list is for you.
Embrace meal prep. Cooking your own meals is such a key part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but amongst our busy lives, it can seem like a time suck, especially when you’re already pressed for time. The solution? Setting aside a day for meal prep lets you plan fresh, healthy lunches, nutritious breakfasts and dinners that take just minutes to throw together.
Plan your outfits or stick to a “uniform.” If you’re one of those people who feel like your mornings are one big scramble, try choosing your outfits when you have a little more time, like the night before or on a Sunday afternoon, if you’re feeling ambitious. If even planning outfits feels like it takes up too much brain power, try adopting a consistent style that doesn’t take much planning at all, like a crisp white button down and cropped trouser pants that you wear on workdays.
Clean daily. Many people find that their precious weekends are taken up with cleaning. If you’d rather spend your downtime snoozing than scrubbing, try cleaning throughout the week incrementally. For example, give your kitchen a wipe-down twice a week or tidy your living room every other day. Tackling tasks like this more regularly and for shorter periods keeps them manageable and saves you time.
