We all enjoy going to sporting events, concerts, spending time at art museums and so many other recreational activities. However, with our busy schedules, it can be hard to fit the activities we love into them. With these few tips, you can make your schedule work for any event.
Create A Routine
Think about what your schedule consists of now. Going to the gym, work, family time? Creating a daily routine will help you accomplish all these tasks while still being able to have fun at night or even just on the weekends. Break up your schedule into blocks consisting of morning, midday and evening. This will help you to prioritize and plan for what needs to get done first. Remember the morning is when the most critical thinking gets done, so be sure to utilize this time.
Even though multi-tasking may feel like the fastest way to get all your tasks done, it actually makes us go slower. From an article in Time magazine it says, “repeatedly switching back and forth from project to project…can impair our ability to function at our finest.” Scheduling your daily tasks effectively and avoiding multi-tasking means you’ll be able to get all that you need done to the best of your abilities.
If there is an event or activity you really want to go to that happens weekly or even in a few months, plan for it! Put it into your schedule and make the rest of your tasks work around it. This will help you feel less overwhelmed or not too busy when the time comes to go to it. Planning early also means you’ll get better seats, can ask your friends to join and have time to save up for the event if needed.
Following a thought-out schedule will ultimately allow you to have more time for your favorite activities without the added stress. What’s your favorite event or activity in Chicago?
