Time-saving hacks to help you in this new normal

Do you remember the early morning rush to get to work? Being careful enough not to spill your morning coffee in your flask whilst on your way to the office? Trying to leave work earlier to beat traffic and ending up in the long sunset traffic and finally getting home to cook a meal? It seemed like there was never enough time in the day — and then lockdown happened.

Staying indoors became our new norm, and we may still be “home-based” – whether it is working from home, running your dream business from home or even simple day-to-day activities and tasks. However, being at home all day can become strenuous and stressful as well.

Luckily for you, we have got some time-saving hacks for you in this new norm, so that you can still enjoy the things you love!

  • Make a weekly schedule

It is time to invest in a weekly planner! Whether it is electronic like the Monday.com or the Trello app, or simply writing up a to-do list. It is important to plan your week in advance so that you know what the week holds. Allocate specific times and days for daily tasks and activities at home and while you are at it, add some time in your schedule to check out MiWay’s home insurance so you can save yourself some time in the day to relax and watch your favourite series!

  • Limit time on emails and social media

Staying indoors means more time on social media and more emails in your inbox, especially business owners who have high volume customer queries and day to day business management. This can take you away from more engaging, productive activities. To save you more time, limit those social media app notifications – and for those dozens of emails in your inbox, use the Boomerang plug-in for Gmail. It lets you control when you send and receive emails, so now you can schedule emails to be sent at the perfect, preferred time. With more time on your hands, you can also ensure that your future is secure, with MiWay’s business insurance.

  • Online Shopping

This has got to be one of the most effective time saving hacks of the 21st century. Instead of having to go out to the local supermarket for those essentials, why not shop for them in the comfort of your own home? You can get so many things done at the same time, whether it is checking the pots while cooking or giving a friend or relative a phone call – you can simply do so now that you have time. While you are adding to your shopping cart and processing grocery item payments, why not use MiSwitch and upload your current policy schedule to see how much MiWay can save you on your car and home insurance.

  • The “touch it once” rule

This is a new time-saver to add to the list when you have an actionable task that comes your way, and it only takes a few minutes to achieve. For example, if there are emails to be answered, open them once and reply, taking care of it once and for all. This is helpful as your inbox will not fill up So instead, why not take care of it once and for all. It is always good to know that you have nothing incomplete hanging over your head, so you have more time in the day to do the things you love and enjoy.

Enjoy this new norm with these time-saving hacks so that you have more time on your hands to Live your way!
