Take breaks to renew your energy during the day

Habits Time Management Tips

Many people move their nose in disgust when the subject of breaks is mentioned (I know, because I used to be one of those people). They see themselves as a furnace of continuous activity, which doesn't need any breaks, because, don't you know, they are very energetic. The same people generally can end up taking many secret breaks throughout the day. And by secret breaks what I mean is not that they are hiding their breaks from their co-workers - I mean they are hiding their breaks from themselves.

Time management - Flexibility, not Doggedness

We have heard a lot about deep work lately. But what we don’t hear enough about is how deep work will not result in a good life balance. 

Mosquito tasks - time management for small tasks

Imagine you have two main projects in your calendar, that you should be working on. In fact, any step in those two projects is bound to make you quite content with yourself, to make you feel that you are making progress, that you are safe and on track, and that you will manage to get it done.

Making Time for yourself consistently

When we forgo the things that we like for too long, and pressure or stress mounts up at work or in relationships, it is much easier to overreact or to feel like our life is somehow being taken away from us by all these other activities. All we need sometimes to feel peaceful and content is a nod towards our own identity, authenticity, and unique pleasures. This requires time for ourselves.

Unitasking and Uninterrupted Time

You may have heard it before: our brains are not made for lots of interruptions, and we shouldn’t be multitasking. This is because, when we multitask, we only get a boost, a feeling of doing more, when we keep on switching tasks. But the reality is that this constant switching between contexts costs the energy of our minds and, without realizing, we actually are much less productive when we switch than when we stay on one activity for a longer period of time.

Time Management for Time Abundance

At TimeRichMe we believe that everyone is entitled to a non-rushed life, in which they get to take care of their needs and life goals in a recurrent, reliable manner. We believe an important part of wellbeing is being able to move through things in an authentic manner, at our own pace. While we understand that there is value in discomfort ...

Establish your Play priorities

One of the obstacles in spending our leisure time in a truly entertaining, relaxed or memorable manner is that by the time we get home, do a few domestic tasks, deal with family and hit the pocket of time that we might still have at the end of the day for our own leisure, we are too tired to even know what to do with it. Those are the times when we are most likely to spend most of your evening zoning out in front of the television, in front of a Facebook wall, or pointlessly searching for something nice to do, at the foggy edge of what's left of our focus.

Make your brain think there's Enough time in hand

We tell ourselves that we don't have enough time to do all sorts of things that we would love to do. We sometimes do projects in a hurry and we feel bad about it, because there's not enough time to do them properly. When we are time-poor, we feel anxious and stressed out. It feels like there is not enough time to truly engage with our activities and the people around us. We sometimes end up believing that having a clear mental state and deploying our best efforts or full self on something are luxuries we don’t afford.

Buffer time to sustain time management sanity

Time richness is not only about hitting your goals, but also about how you generally feel when inhabiting your time: whether you feel stressed out, or unprepared, or you feel there is enough time for you to get ready for things and launch into them from a place of clarity of mind and energy. Unfortunately, though many of us enjoy feeling prepared for things, we often sabotage that good feeling by cramming in one extra activity, or staying on an activity for too long, to manage to get more done, before going for that next meeting, activity, or the leisure time for which we would like to feel prepared and in an appropriate mood. Time itself won't ring a bell in our head to tell us we should stop what we are doing and prepare for the next activity. And we won't get extra time to prepare for the next activity just because we wish for it.
