Probably one of the most difficult things to master in life is time management. It’s always a struggle to get that paper submitted on time without having to entertain those distractions (I’m talking about you, Netflix!) or spending almost half of your day stuck in traffic.
And when 24 hours in a day doesn’t seem enough for your work, yourself, your health, your family, and your friends, let’s top it all off with the impending Manila holiday traffic, shall we? #GG Here are a couple of tips care of /ESCAPE!
Wake up and start your day early.
Not all (not even most) people are morning persons, okay? But it has been proven that you can accomplish and make the most out of your day when you start it early. You’d be surprised by how much you’d be able to finish before lunch. So stay away from that snooze button!
Plan your day ahead.
The easiest way to manage your time is to make a list of things you need to get done for the day. Once you see you what needs to be done, which tasks you need to prioritize, and how much time each task will take, you’ll know how to budget your time and go through the day like a breeze. It also serves as a reminder for the rest of the things you need to do just in case things get a little extra cray.
Give yourself breaks in between.
I know it might feel like a sin, especially when it’s Monday and your boss is breathing down your neck for the work that piled up over the weekend, but trust me, you need it! Take a walk, get some sun, or rest your eyes from the screen for 20 minutes. You’ll come back refreshed and ready to conquer the rest of the paperwork.
Choose the more efficient way of traveling.
It’s common knowledge how traffic has been eating up everyone’s time and getting stuck in rush hour isn’t the most ideal for a very busy day ahead. What’s worse is having to walk to main roads and (literally) fight your way just to get a ride. Whether it’s getting a ride home or delivering certain items, just book Grab! Thanks to GrabCar and GrabCar+, you can get picked up where you want and driven to your next destination without the trouble of having to fight with other passengers.
