Time Saver Tips
Time saver tips are ways to help you to save time and reallocate how you choose to use it. What if you could use at least some of your time every day for being generous to yourself and others? Time savers can be mood boosters and productivity enhancers. This month I am blogging about time management and “29 Ways to Be Generous” with your time. If you want time savers that have the benefit of personal satisfaction start to think about which activities you can eliminate or shorten in your daily or weekly routine. This is a time saver strategy that will help you to create a space for something else.
Time Saver Tips
Today’s time saver tip is to buy fresh flowers for yourself. This is a great way to be generous towards your self. Look at how little time this takes…
- 1-2 minutes to select the flowers that appeal to you. This time saver takes less time than you spend on Facebook.
- 2-5 minutes to purchase them. That is less time than it takes to put gas in your car.
- 3-5 minutes to trim and put into a vase. That’s less time than you spend emailing a message to someone.
- 30-60 seconds to enjoy looking at them. That’s about the time it takes to text someone.
- 30 seconds to enjoy smelling their fragrance. That is less time than you spend on Instagram.
