I came upon an interesting article the other day, and I wanted to tell you about it. I love to share new work advice whenever and wherever I find it, especially when I learn something that can help me too. So, Your Office Mom wants to introduce twelve ways to simplify your day-to-day and find more balance in your work-life.
I know most of us struggle to find work-life balance and meet the demands of our professional and personal lives. We create to-do lists, keep a watchful eye on priorities, and run amok more often than we like to admit. It's quite challenging to keep our sanity in the process.
Between our work life, maintaining financial health, and enjoying our limited amount of free time, our attention is pulled in several different directions every day. How can we get the maximum amount done with limited time each day and stay sane through it all? Luckily, I discovered how a little bit of automation could go a long way to give you some precious time back.
Automation is widely available for just about anyone to use. Whereas I'm somewhat old school (likely an age thing), some simple automation processes can tackle a wide range of tasks from managing debt, getting more done at work and reducing time spent on grocery shopping and cleaning.
What I found is that it only takes a simple app or tap of the button to optimize your whole life. You really can make your life easier with automation. Check out this infographic from Turbo for easy ways to automate every part of your life.
After some careful review, I saw some opportunities here, like focusing on my sleep habits (or lack thereof). If you’re anything like me, you probably need to research the best sleep apps to find one that works for you.
According to the infographic, “the average person spends five years of their lives waiting in line.” I never realized it was that much, but that is a total waste of time. To keep my wait time to a minimum I went to a to a meal kit delivery service months ago. I let Home Chef choose what I’m having for dinner so I get the box at my doorstep and hone my cooking skills in the process. Recently, I started using curbside pick up for groceries which means I’m no longer looking for items or standing in the checkout line.
How can you automate your life? Do you have any additional tips? I would love to hear your suggestions!
