We always look for ways to save time. No matter how small the amount, the more time we save today, the better off we'll be in the future. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but definitely over time, the minutes and hours will add up.
While a single minute may not seem like a lot of time to comprehend a useful skill, you would be surprised by knowing, just how much you can actually accomplish in 60 seconds or less.
Here, I found several handy life hacks you can pick up almost instantly.
No, there's just no need to take decision according to the outcome. But, you'll realize what you really want when the coin is in the air.
Use toothpaste instead of glue or screw; it will stick the poster to the wall and won't leave the residue.
Print the speech and change the text color after every four lines. It will make it 10 times easier while reading it.
And if you could take the print, just bring a bottle of water up with you. And take a drink whenever you need to collect your thoughts. It's just that simple.
When printing documents, simply change the text from black to gray. This will make little difference to the quality of print but will not only reduce the amount of ink used, but also it'll increase the printing speed.
Press your hands together as hard as you can (just for a minute), as this kind of isometric exercise requires minimal movement. Remember, you should feel the pressure in your pectoral, shoulder, and arm muscles.
Isn't this so easy to remember?
Take a look at the little gas indicator on your dashboard, and you would see a tiny arrow next to it. Actually, that arrow points to the gas tank side of the car. Now you'll never forget where it is again.
Just flip the bottle upside-down once you took medication and flip it back again after another dose. In this way, you'll be able to look back later and see if you've taken it.
For medication, you take three times a day, move the bottle after you take the dose (like, left..then.. front.. and then right, the pattern doesn't matter)
When writing an email, fill in the address last. And this way, you'll never accidently click and send a premature email.
Inhale through your nose in 4 seconds, then hold your breath for 7 seconds and then exhale through the mouth in 8 seconds. This exercise will soothe your nervous system and help you fall asleep in minutes.
Block sites for certain period of time through KeepMeOut and stay focused on your task.
