3 Favorite Time-Saving Tips

This is a busy time of year. With the start of school, team sports and still nice summer(y) weather, it’s hard to fit everything in. Doesn’t it makes you feel like you are always running out of time to get things done? I am offering some of my favorite time-saving tips so you can manage your time a little more wisely, no matter how busy your life gets!

Take a few minutes before bed to organize for the next day: Check your calendar, make a list, make your breakfast and/or lunch and lay out your clothes. Your mornings will be much smoother, and you will feel more in control.

Do things that energize you! make an appointment with yourself. We tend to forget things like exercise and down time when we get busy. It seems like such a luxury when there is so much to do, but scheduling time for something enjoyable will make you more productive, happier and less stressed.

Don’t be afraid to delegate. If you are procrastinating on some tasks maybe it’s time to delegate them to someone else. Hire help or ask family members to pick up some of the slack during this busy time of year.
