Gaining more hours in the day is at the top of every busy person's wish list. But what if we told you that scoring more time is just a matter of rethinking your routine? We spoke to organizing and productivity experts to find out where most people are losing time each day, plus simple tactics for getting those lost minutes back.
1. Limit your TV time in the morning.
Many people like to start their day by tuning in to one of the morning news shows. While it's a great way to get informed, "it's easy to get caught up in a story and then find out you're actually watching much more television than you intended," says Debbie Rosemont, productivity consultant and owner of Simply Placed. To prevent getting sucked into the TV vortex, give yourself a time limit-maybe even set a timer-so you know when you have to tune out. Really can't peel yourself away from the screen? Consider turning on some music to supplement your morning routine instead. Photo: Thinkstock
