How To Manage Your Time

One of the biggest stresses of modern life is that we now have so many options open to us that we just don’t know how to fit everything in. But learn how to use time more effectively – by re-assessing your habits, making a few positive adjustments - and you have a great de-stressing strategy at our finger tips.

1. Make a list of weekly home and work tasks and allocate each one to a regular time-slot. Never depart from this unless absolutely necessary, and do not allow anyone else to change your routine for you.

2. Make a note of extra tasks when they are requested or required. A poor memory can be responsible for doing the same thing twice – a total waste of time – and for creating disorder.


3. Learn how to say ‘no’. How many times do you accept invitations to go somewhere out of politeness and end up resenting the wasted time? Don’t act out of obligation – do thing because YOU want to do them, not to please others.

4. If you have a large task, split it up into several smaller tasks. And tick each one off as you complete it. This way you’ll feel a sense of progress rather than being overwhelmed by the enormity of what you have to do.

5. Delegate and don’t look back. It’s pointless passing some task – at work or at home – on to someone else if you’re then going to interfere with its progress. Walk away until it’s done.

6. Set yourself realistic time limits. There’s nothing like a deadline to make you perform more effectively. Prioritize. There is only so much that you can accomplish in a day. Make a daily list of ‘stuff-to-do’ those needed by midday at the top.

7. Don’t strive for perfection, accept your limitations, and recognize what you’ve achieved each day.

8. Avoid procrastination. Don’ put anything off. Do the tough job at its allotted time – tomorrow may be even busier. Your new regime is to tackle it now.
