Sharing is caring!

Life can be busy. We all know that. It doesn’t matter whether it is work deadlines or school runs, doctor’s appointments, or commitments, life can be chaotic, and trying to ensure that we get what we need to be done and have our day run smoothly often feels out of reach. However, there are things that you can do to make it simpler. I wanted to share with you some of the life hacks that can make your day run smoothly Here are some things you could try.

Automate your bills and savings 

Banking and paying bills are often left to one person in the household, and ensuring all your bills are paid on time can be worrying. So instead, make sure you have direct debits set up. Create a spreadsheet where you have a list of everyone that leaves your account, the amount, and the date you have arranged it to be paid. That way you have one thing to refer to and should always have a clear idea of your outgoings. Automate your savings too. Whether it is monthly or weekly transfers, have them set up so you don’t need to think about it. 

Change one habit at a time 

Another thing you can do is focus on changing your habits. We all know that bad habits can stop us from being as productive as we might like to be, but don’t try and change too much all at once. Instead, focus on one habit at a time and make a positive change. It’s all about a slow process and the more you focus on one thing, the easier the new habit will stick. 

Figure out the times of day you are most productive 

If you want to be productive and have a smooth day then a great hack is to work out the times of day that you are most productive. For some that might be first thing in the morning, others might find the afternoon or evenings better. Once you know this information, work your days and routines around it. You will find that you get so much more done, doing things when you are more likely to complete the tasks. 

Organise your fridge, pantry, and cupboards 

The more you can see things, the easier things are, and this is so true when it comes to your kitchen. How many times do you open your fridge and cupboards and not find what you want or can’t see anything to make for a meal? Only to find that things get wasted or you order take-out? Organising your fridge, pantry, and cupboards so that you can see everything will make things easier and you will spend less time hunting for things.

Declutter and reorganise your wardrobe 

The same can be said for your wardrobe. You might spend too much time looking for items of clothing or find you wear the same clothes because your wardrobe is not organised. Take time to reorganise and declutter and you will notice a huge difference in how you start your day. 

Focus on what you have time for and not what you don’t have time for 

A lot of us will wake up and express that we don’t have enough time. Or that we don’t have time to do certain things throughout the day. So instead, turn that thought process on its head. Instead, think about what you have time for? So if you want to exercise but think you don’t have the time, instead think about what you have the time to do. That might just be a quick ten-minute run, walking to work or school, or even a home workout instead of going to the gym. We can all work out what we have time to do and in theory, you will get much more completed. 

Write down one thing you are putting off 

If there is one thing you keep putting off, write it down and stick it where you can see it. The fact you keep seeing it often means that you will get on and get that task completed. One thing each day that you might be avoiding will mean that over the course of a week you get so much more done. 

Work in batches 

Finally, work in batches. Don’t spend your time washing all of the pots after every meal, or putting the washing on every time there are clothes to wash. Work in batches. You will get more done in less time. 

Hopefully, these life hacks will make your day run smoothly.
