How to Make the Most of Your Busy Day

Step 1. Don?t waste time in the morning

One of the best ways to kick-start your day is to get through your morning smoothly. You don?t want to be fumbling around getting out of bed and getting ready for the work day. You should always prepare what you?re going to wear the night before to save time in the morning. If you have kids, you can implement the same strategy with them to make mornings easier.

Get up right when your alarm goes off, and start getting ready right away. You quicker the move, the more you?ll wake up. You?ll waste less time, be more efficient, and get out the door and on your way to work with time to spare.

Step 2. Use leftover time to stop at a coffee shop

Don?t try to make your own coffee at home before work. You likely won?t have time to make the coffee, let alone drink it, especially if you have children. By the time you get around to starting the pot, it?ll be too late to the cup cool before you need to drink it and run out the door. This opens up opportunities for burning and spilling on your clothes. Chances are, you don?t have the right type of carrier cup to make transporting your coffee easy. So, stop by a local coffee shop on the way to work, instead.

With the average American drinks around 1.5 cups of coffee every day, it?s important to make sure you pick a coffee shop that doesn?t usually have long lines. Around 65% of coffee drank is consumed for breakfast, so you may need to allocate a little extra time in case the shop is busy. Even so, they?ll be able to provide you with coffee cups with lids, coffee stirrers, and creamer just as you like it.

Step 3. Stop by a deli for lunch

On your lunch hour, don?t go out for a sit-down lunch. This will end up taking much longer than you expect. Chances are you can?t actually do any work while you?re at lunch either. Worst case scenario, a sit-down lunch means you have to stay at work an hour later that night, and no one wants that.

Instead, find a good deli near your office and make it your usual lunch stop. One of the easiest things to get at delis is hot soup. In fact, soup is becoming so popular that around 30% of delis are looking at ways to enhance their soup stations for customer satisfaction. You might not believe it but every year, there are around 10 billion bowls of soup eaten by Americans. Soup is so easy to grab-and-go that you can eat it quickly in the deli or take it back to the office to eat while you continue working. Also, there?s so many different varieties of soup that you?ll never get bored with your selection.
