It's a well-known fact: weeks speed on by, regardless of the time of year.
When you have workouts to do, meals to prepare and homework to supervise, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. It’s not always easy to juggle daily tasks, but it’s important to have good tips to improve one’s routine. Here are a few tricks on how you can organize your upcoming weeks and take back control over your days.
1. Set Goals
Write down three things you want to accomplish during the week. Like mini-resolutions, these goals can be personal or professional. Keep in mind, they should also be realistic and relatively easy to carry out.
For example, decide to go to the gym twice a week, turn off your computer during team meetings or even call a friend just to say "hi".
2. Write a To-Do List
To-do lists are the secret of organized and efficient people. This well-known tool makes it possible to not forget anything and to prioritize things to do while decreasing stress brought on by mental overload. You can even write your to-do list on your cell phone so it’s always available and you don’t forget a thing, even when you’re not at home!
Add all your chores to your list, shopping (even if you’re doing it online!) and all calls or follow-ups you need to make. Once more, be realistic in your goals: don’t plan too much!
3. Give Yourself Time
Weeks can often seem really busy because we overbook them. When planning ahead, be sure to leave time slots where your only task is to make time for you or your family.
Don’t forget to carve out some time for sports, as well. Physical activity is often set aside when the day seems too packed. Yet, being active offers many benefits: better sleep, less stress, more energy, the list goes on.
Be sure to plan a few sports sessions during your week. Choose activities you enjoy and that fit your schedule. A 30-minute jog during lunch or a 15-minute bodybuilding session in your living room will be more enjoyable (and harder to skip!) than a group class after a long day at work.
4. Drop the Shop
We can all agree that meal preparation and evenings spent running around supermarkets are really time-consuming. To help you save time, try a grocery delivery service such as Goodfood, which offers ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat meals, grocery products such as bread, oil, pre-cut fruits and vegetables, and breakfast options like ready-to-blend smoothies, cold-pressed juices and artisanal oat bowls that are made with wholesome natural ingredients to jump-start your day!
This flexible and affordable service allows you to combine the efficiency of ready-to-cook meals and online shopping. Plus, since Goodfood delivers products directly to your door each week, you won’t even need to leave the house! Now that's convenience we can all use in our lives.
