1. Plan and organise: Spend some time each week planning and organising your schedule. Use a planner or a digital calendar to keep track of appointments, deadlines, and events. Make a to-do list for each day so you know what you need to accomplish. This can help you prioritise tasks and avoid feeling overwhelmed.
  2. Batch tasks: Instead of doing multiple small tasks throughout the day, try to group similar tasks together and do them all at once. For example, do all your grocery shopping in one trip or batch cook for the week in one day.
  3. Delegate tasks: Do not do everything by yourself. You can involve other people. Ask your spouse, family members, children or friends to help you. You can also outsource to other people for a fee; for example, you can hire a babysitter or a cleaning company to help free up some time for you.
  4. Use time-saving tools: There are many tools out there to help you save time. Some kitchen gadgets also come in handy when you want to save time, such as slow cookers, instant pots or food processors. You can also rely on online shopping and delivery services to help you with your groceries and other household items.
  5. Take a break: It is important to carve out time for you every day to prevent burnout. Plan a daily me-time routine where you take a few minutes to relax, meditate or do something you enjoy. This can help you recharge and make you feel more productive when you return to your tasks.
