Always in a rush? Running late? Tired and rundown?
Here are some tips on how to not only find time to finish everything on your to do list, but have some me time as well.
Wake Up An Hour Earlier
So adorable 😊 😺 💛 Photo by @anyagrapes Follow @my.adorable.cats for awesome cats 💛 💛 💛 #goodmorning #bomdia #breakfast #morning #coffee #love #happy #buongiorno #selfie #buenosdias #smile #sunrise #bonjour #instagood #gunaydin #wakeup #goodday #work #beautiful #picoftheday #gutenmorgen #доброеутро #sunshine #riseandshine #haveaniceday #motivation #instadaily #newday
Alright, you can make it 45 minutes if you have to.
Go to bed earlier, don’t let it cut into your sleep time, and stick to a solid 7 hour minimum.
Give yourself extra time in the morning so you aren’t rushed, or are able to check the first few things off your to do list (not your social media).
It can really set the productivity tone for the rest of the day, or just give you some me time, before everyone else is up.
If you need to be at work, to recenter yourself, or get a workout in, or breakfast for that matter, now you will have the time.

Have a Written Schedule
Do you have what seems like a never ending to-do list that you struggle to get through? Do you find yourself stressing about all the things you need to do rather than doing them? Check out my latest post to find out about the 1-3-5 rule and how it can help you (link in bio) ✏️✏️ . . . . . #blogging #blogger #ausbeautyblogger #ausblogger #ausblogger #life #lifehack #todolist #list #135rule #busy #mind #calm #organise #organised #organisedlife #work #blogging #bloggerstyle #hustle #stationery
Committing your schedule to paper solidifies it in your mind, but also frees you up from constantly having it lingering in your peripheral while you’re going through your tasks.
Having a to do list with points is the clearest version, and less time restrictive, but bullet points in a schedule work just as well.
The more visually appealing the better, as having it on display is best.
There are some great ready made options available, from decorative whiteboards, to bulletin boards and so on, or you can make or decorate your own.

Got a late start on meal prep but I'm done now just two hours later! Better late than never 👍🏼 gang's all here, all from @milkandeggscom — roasted sweet potatoes + garlic sautéed brussels sprouts + cinnamon sea salt roasted sweet potatoes + turmeric cauliflower + steamed broccoli + roasted zucchini + roasted rosemary carrots + roasted asparagus + chicken seasoned with @primalpalate and turmeric + my coconut almond chicken tenders 🤤 I hope everyone had a fabulous Monday!! #iChooseToBeWell
Planning and preparing weekly meals ahead of time saves hours of preparation and grocery shopping time, first plan the week’s meals, then write your shopping list accordingly, then prepare, dice, chop, season, cook, etc. and store.
When its time to consume, just toss it all together and heat, or eat.
Follow this routine with whatever task you can apply it to, household chores like laundry, or projects at work.
Grouping similar tasks saves time, effort, and clean up.
Is anyone else feeling that Monday grind 😬? @lindsay.lives.well didn't have any Monday blues this morning because she had a delicious cup of our Teami Focus ☕🍃🤓! This is our newest blend and it helps increase focus, boost mental clarity and raise production! Basically, you can get a lot of Sh*t done 💪🏼! Have any of you tried this life saving blend yet?! #teamitumbler #focustime
As blindingly obvious as this may seem, focusing wholeheartedly on the task at hand can save hours of hemming and hawing.
So set up a distraction free environment, noise cancelling headphones playing concentration frequency music, and a decluttered yet inviting workspace.
All research should be done beforehand, and notes prepared, cut it into sections if need be, with motivational breaks appropriately spaced.
Now how better to face such an undertaking than with these marble effect specs, that are not only right on trend, but will help you focus, as you won’t be distracted by all the blurriness.
