I saw a post the other day on Instagram that read; “Shout out to all the plants growing through concrete.” If that quote resonates with you like it does with me, this post is for you.
I’m sharing my time management hacks that help me maximize my day. ( And no, fidget spinners and homemade slime are not on the list.) My hope is that however you use these tools, whether it be studying for an exam, at your 9-5, or working on that side hustle, that they bring you one step closer to accomplishing your goals and living out your wildest dreams.
And in case no one has told you this lately- You’re doing great!! don’t give up! Your big break is coming and did you do something different to your hair? Have you been working out lately? You look really cute today! Timemanagement hacks I live by:
1. Set the tone. I keep a travel diffuser in my book bag with a USB connector so that wherever I set up shop I can get my essential oils going. There are oils for everything! Relaxation, mood elevation, and my personal favorite- focus. Doterra’s “elevation” blend is my jam, the citrus smells wake up my brain and keep me going even when my cold brew is running out.
2. The Miracle Cube Timer. This is everything. This $15 block has been accredited as the secret to success by millionaires, CEO’s and accomplished people alike. When I sit down to work I give myself a set amount of time to check my emails, scroll my social feeds and answer a few text messages and then, once the cube tells me that time is up, I single-task my project at hand. This has been a total game changer for me! I hear it even works great for putting your kids on time out!
3. Relax Melodies App. My girlfriend showed me this app on her phone while we were house-boating in the desert together this summer and I’ve been hooked ever since. I swear I can study, read and write for hours on end with the calming nature sounds in my ear buds. This app has some great sleeping sounds too, so use it at night to maximize your resting time and kiss insomnia goodbye.
I want to know what goals you’re working towards! Lets cheer each other on and help one another to be successful. Comment below what helps you power through your day!
