Time-blocking tips – Small Business Corner
Managing your time is extremely valuable for working remotely, where distractions are all around you! Let’s look at some ways you can manage your time to make the most out of your workday:
Goal setting is crucial because it helps you decide and stay focused on what is really important to you. In addition, effective goal setting also lets you measure progress, overcome procrastination and visualize your dreams. You have targets to work toward when you set goals. Working toward a goal’s completion calls for careful planning, which requires you to figure out effective ways to manage your time.
Establish a routine
Establishing a routine can help you consistently set aside the time necessary to get tasks done. Set your alarm, and add in some exercise and breakfast (most important meal of the day!) time if you have not already. The goal is to start working at the same time every day, and be sure to schedule in some much-needed breaks throughout your work day.
Try to ensure you are as focused as you can be when working remotely. Creating a personal office using a room in your home is a great way to start. Setting up a structured setup for your desk helps with productivity, and making sure you have a clean and organized work environment is key for efficient and effective time management.
Try an app
Let’s embrace technology instead of avoiding it. There are a number of productivity apps available that are geared toward helping you get things done. This can be especially helpful for managing time while working without supervision.
You can also use an app to remind yourself to take a step back and relax for a moment. There are fitness apps that will help you remember to stand up and stretch every once in a while. Stretching is extremely beneficial for keeping your mind and body strong. Doing so will help boost your energy levels thus allowing you to use your time more effectively.
Using the above-mentioned time blocking methods should help set the tone to a more productive work day. Hopefully these tips will lead to a happier and more productive life!
