We live in a crazy busy world, don't we? Holy smokes, it seems the pace of life, if you let it, picks up steam with every turn! Then, add in Christmas and it's a recipe for overload and overwhelm.
I've got some simple tips today to help. I've been spending time talking with my health coach about time management to always leave room for exercise, and some of the things I'm learning there will definitely help around the holidays also. Here we go.
1. Turn off the notifications on your phone. Technology is pretty amazing in all the ways it can save us time and help us run our lives more efficiently. But, the notifications for your Facebook, your email, and then text messages, well, they can literally keep you from getting anything done! Decide the best times to check your email and facebook that fit into YOUR schedule, and then turn off the notifications in your settings. I promise you, you'll be able to catch up with anything you want to.
2. Speaking of smart phones, make sure you ARE utilizing the time management apps. Keep a calendar and set reminders. Check in the morning, and you'll be surprised at how few things fall through the cracks! This is INVALUABLE around the holidays!
3. Order gifts online. The world of e-commerce is here to stay, and we will all save not just time but money when shopping online. Ever wonder why you walk in the store to just get a couple things and you walk out with a couple bags? Yeah, me too! Avoid distractions by shopping online. It's quick, safe and smart.
