You are a busy person. Running around between family obligations, work responsibilities, maintaining a social life, and making time for yourself is incredibly difficult to manage. Take action and try some of these tips and ideas to make your life easier and spend more time doing what you love.
1. Make Eating Easier
Everyone needs to eat. You want your food to be of good quality and have a better experience consuming it than just eating a bowl of cereal over the kitchen sink with only five minutes left before leaving the house. Here are some ways to make the process easier.
– Order Groceries Online
One of the best things you can do to free up time in your schedule is to order groceries online. Using a one-stop-shop grocery delivery service with everything from wine and spirits to pantry items to fresh seafood will make your life better in so many ways.
Use the website’s reorder feature to easily reorder items you enjoy without searching for them every time. Try the available recipes for inspiration to get dinner on the table. When you order groceries online, you get what you want when you want it without spending time in the store or wasting precious gas.
– Embrace Meal Preparation
Choosing a day for meal prep is a tactical way to make your meals come together easily. Schedule grocery delivery when you have fewer items on your schedule or have someone around the house to help you. Turn on some music or a favorite podcast, and then get started.
Have your recipes on hand, chopping boards, knives, and reusable containers ready. Begin by pulling out the fruits and vegetables that need chopping or slicing for the week ahead. Place them in containers to be quickly accessed when needed. Trim or cut up meat and place the pieces in marinades. Continue the process until everything is broken down into its prepared forms and is ready for cooking.
2. Make Planning Easier
If you do not already have a shared family calendar, it is time to embrace one. Having a calendar that everyone can access and add to will make your lives better. You will not need to guess a family member’s schedule or reschedule an appointment when an unknown activity pops up. Here are some items to consider.
– Use a Digital Calendar
Going the digital or online route in creating a shared calendar is one of the easiest ways to keep everyone informed. With this option, you can still have your calendar while sharing and accessing the group calendar.
Add items to your calendar, and add items that will impact everyone’s schedule to the group calendar. Gone are the days when you wonder if someone needs a ride or is free to go for a hike. Of course, you should always ask, but this is easy, too!
Here is a video showing you how to share a Google calendar.
Do not let another moment pass without taking steps to streamline your life. Make it happen today so you can get on with more fun and enjoyable things in life than going grocery shopping or discussing schedules.
