Manage your time so that you make the most of it.
In a day are the same number of hours as before, and you should take advantage of all of them. Plan as many
activities as you want, and then strictly follow your time planning.
Two of the problems that can arise during isolation and social distancing can be tackled efficiently through
efficient time management:
You can prevent procrastination and isolation anxiety by paying extra-attention to your time planning, and
especially if you respect what you have planned.
Here are some techniques that can help you to adopt a constructive approach to isolation and social
Plan your days the evening before as part of your time management routine
Each evening, determine what you want to do the next day and set the time intervals for the planned
The days start much more relaxed when you already know what to do. This way you don’t have to make decisions
first thing in the morning. Another advantage of this is the proven fact that overnight it is possible to even
find solutions for the problems you have proposed to work on the next day.
For an efficient time management:
Use PlanArty's To-do list
and enjoy all the benefits you get
by using this time tracking solution. The
program, specially created for time tracking and time planning, adapts to your needs and allows you to be
flexible with your plans.
Get yourself ready for the day to better manage your time
Every morning, follow your routine as if you were going to work. This fact in itself will have a positive effect
on your productivity. Your mood will be much improved if you avoid staying in bed for too long.
To better manage your time:
Make sure you rest properly. PlanArty’s Sleep
helps you to plan the exact sleep hours recommended
for you. Wake up at the same time you used to. Perform your morning rituals with all that it entails. Get
dressed and start your activities immediately.
Work in a designated space to increase your productivity
Set up a room, or a certain place in a room, where you can perform your professional activities. Try to arrange
it according to the specificity of your activities. This fact will help you to detach yourself from what is
around you and focus better on what you have to do.
For an increased productivity:
Perform each type of activity in a specific space. Use the kitchen only to prepare food and eat, the bedroom
only to rest and the office space only to carry out your professional activities. This will also create a
diversity feeling as you go from one activity to another, from professional to personal space.
Use a time tracking solution
When we work "from home" we are more prone to such errors. It is quite easy to get along with all kinds of
things and forget about what we had to do, thus causing delays, or to dive into work too deep and not be aware
of the passage of time. Neither situation is beneficial to us. We need order and discipline in the daily program
to deal with this situation on the long run
Time tracking suggestion:
Use PlanArty time tracking solution
to control how you
spend your time. Plan your activities, track your time
and enjoy while doing so. Achievements of any kind are very good stimulants of our psyche. As you will see how
your planned activities are accomplished one by one you will be able to enjoy your achievements and this will
bring you a positive mood.
Include sport in your daily activities
Sport is good for us, especially since it stimulates our immune system and this is very useful in the current
situation. There is no need for performance sports, but we need to move. You can even plan 2-3 short periods of
movement throughout the day. That will also give you a boost of energy.
Stick to your planning:
PlanArty comes to your aid to stay on track with everything you have proposed. Planed day versus Real day
functionality is an objective comparison between what you have planned and what you have achieved. This way
you'll find an extra motivation to respect your plans.
Make plans for the future
Be optimistic, full of hope and look forward to the future.
During the isolation period, spend quality time doing useful and beneficial things for now, and also making
plans for our future. Everything will be easier when you know that at the end of this period you'll have to do
beautiful things and accomplish all your great goals.
Focus on the present and keep all the possibilities of the future:
In PlanArty's Someday tasks list
, write down all the
wonderful ideas you have and all the things you want to
do. This way you can rest assured that you will not forget about them and at the same time you will free your
mind so that you can devote 100% of your attention to the things you have to do now.
