Gestation de Temps
So today I will shortly discuss time management & what I do to stay on track daily. Since I started blogging, I have had to learn how to manage my schedule better than I used to. Even though it isn’t my full time job, it still takes up a good chunk of my time.
Time management is something almost every productive person thinks they’re really good at, but in reality, it can be difficult to always stay on schedule & in reality, time management is kind of a myth. I mean we only have so many hours in a day and what seems like an endless list of very important tasks to accomplish. So these are my tips on how to try to properly manage time + the tools I utilize. Lastly, my outfit is linked below!
Planners & Lists
This is kind of a “duh” statement, but writing down everything you need to do daily actually helps you accomplish more. When I was still a student (like a month ago ha ha), I would try to schedule my day hour by hour. I had to use this hourly schedule system so that I was able to work out daily, cook, study, have a social life, etc. I wouldn’t always stick to my schedules because life happens, but it was great to stay on track. I also loved to write lists and then be able look back on my week to see what I had accomplished. So, whether you could use the calendar on your phone or you like physical planners, it’s good to use something. I use both because I do not always carry my planner with me. I also use my notes app on my phone to comprise lists. My favorite planners are from Kate Spade, so I have a similar one linked here. The design I currently have is sold out.
Of course having something that tells you time is important when managing time ha ha. I prefer using a simple watch and not my iPhone when I am working on a task & I need to stay focused. When I constantly check my phone, I find myself wasting a lot of time. So I usually put it on do not disturb & I keep track of my time on my watch. Now, I’m not big on jewelry, because I always feel weighed down. But this wooden watch I’m wearing from JORD is so lightweight and comfy. Wooden watches have been trending lately because many consumers are realizing how eco-friendly they are compared to metal watches. To add, some people also have metal allergies, so they cannot wear watches without irritating their skin.
What I personally love about JORD’s wooden watches is that they have such beautiful designs. They’re available in so many different types of wood AND they can also add a personal engraved message. This makes them the perfect personalized men’s & women’s watches for Valentine’s Day gifts!
P.S. I will be posting a gift guide soon for Valentine’s Day =)
