Whether it’s your birthday that is fast approaching or the New Year’s, people get retrospective during these times which leads to them making resolutions aiming to better themselves and make time for the things they love. But, what do you do if you are having a hard time trying to find some free time during the day to pursue your hobbies?
If this is the case with you then your resolution should be about focusing on saving time and using that extra time to pursue the endeavors that make you happy.
Here are two time-saving life hacks that might seem insignificant but give them a try and you will find yourselves marveling at the amazing end result!
1. Limit Your Social Media Use
Believe it or not, people spend a lot of time on social media. You may have often found yourself scrolling through tons of irrelevant pages and posts for hours upon hours, just to end up with random pictures, videos, and posts. While there is nothing terribly wrong with spending time on social media, increased usage can not only be a waste of your time but is also linked with increased chances of developing anxiety and depression.
So, for this year, focus on limiting the time that you spend using social media. A great way would be to set specific time intervals and durations during the day during which you can peruse all of your social media applications to your heart’s content.
2. Getting Organized
Do you know that an average person spends about 2.5 days every year just looking for various different things? Well, now you do. A survey conducted by Pixie revealed the time we waste every single day looking for things like a lost book or finding your favorite Christmas sweater from your pile of old clothes. This does beg the question, how can one save time and not spend hours looking for a lost item.
The answer is simple - all you have to do is to organize. Take a look at your place and make a list of everything that seems to be out of place. From your clothes to your car keys, start organizing every item and putting it back in its designated spot after use. You will not only save time when it comes to searching for things but also save time on cleaning because your things will already be in their place.
Are you ready for a change? Imagine all of the things you would now be able to do with all of your free time. Personally, we’re thinking of bing-watching the entire final season of “Game of Thrones.”
