It is time to ring in 2016. With a new year comes New Year’s resolutions. Is it this year that you have decided to go to the gym to work off that 2015 spare tire, or perhaps you have decided to live a healthier lifestyle? Regardless of your New Year’s resolutions, one thing that we can all agree on is that we could use a little more time in our day. Here are some great time saving tips that you can start right now to make your 2016 a more efficient year.
Probably the most efficient and practical way to save time is to create a daily, weekly and even a monthly schedule. This schedule can be as basic or as complex as you want to make it. For instance, you can micro manage your week right down to what you will be having for dinner, how much time you will be giving to online entertainment and what time you go to sleep.
By scheduling your days and weeks, you will be able to see exactly where your time is going. If you have scheduled yourself to go to bed at 10pm but you didn’t get to bed until 11pm you should be able to reflect as to why you needed that extra hour. Maybe it is as simple as you watched a movie or maybe you are not scheduling enough time for meetings, for example. Use a day timer agenda book or utilize your smart phone to help you create a schedule that will help you make more sense of your time.
Another great time-management tool is the simple list. A list can be a very helpful tool when it comes to getting all of your groceries for the week or ticking off the daily or weekly to do lists. By using a list you will save time by not having to go out on multiple shopping trips or having to go to the same place twice.
Another great way to save time is to use the services that businesses offer. For instance, free pick-up and delivery. We are the premier Kitsilano dry cleaners and we are not only eco-friendly, but we also offers a free pick-up and delivery service for your dry cleaning or laundry. Why not let us come and get your laundry and then drop it off when it is are finished?
Using this type of service will save you the inconvenience of having to drop off and pick up your laundry. It will also give you professionally dry cleaned clothing so you can use all of that extra time for other chores in your busy schedule.
If businesses offer such services at no extra charge, make sure to use them as they will only save you time and money. 2016 promises to be every bit as busy as 2015. Make sure to use free services, schedules and lists to try to make your day a little less busy!
