Too Little Time, Too Many Tasks: Ways to Maximise Your After-work Hours

The work day is finally over and some ‘me time’ is rightfully called for. For many of us, this could be vegging out in front of the TV, unwinding with friends or simply doing nothing.

But the reality is, work of a different nature beckons. From doing the laundry, getting the groceries, cooking a meal, cleaning the house to paying the bills, the chores seem endless. For parents, responsibilities such as spending time with the kids, tutoring them and tucking them into bed only add to the long to-do list. .

With so much to do and so little time, how can you make better use of your after-work hours? Well, time is of the essence! Be sure to abide by these simple tips so as to help you maximise every minute of your free time. .

Plan your week

Create a schedule of your weekly tasks. For example, designate a day for doing the grocery run, a day for tidying up the house and a day for working out. With a plan in mind, it’s easier to get things done instead of deciding what to do only when the work day is over. Be flexible with your plan and shift things around to accommodate your schedule if need be.

Pick up a new skill

Work can get mundane, but your after-work routine doesn’t have to be. Sign up for a class or join a club to try your hand at something new. Learn to write poetry, explore craft-making or become part of a cycling team. Find something that interests you or a passion you’ve always wanted to pursue. This way, you’ll get to broaden your horizons and make new friends along the way.

Switch off from work

If possible, try not to check your work email after you’ve left the office. A lot of professionals suffer from work-related stress because they’re burdened by the obsessive need to check their emails constantly.

In fact, there are studies that suggest that the less you check your email, the less stress you’ll experience. So let go of work and keep yourself occupied by watching a movie, reading a book or hanging out with friends. Without work bearing down on you, your mood will improve and you’ll find that you can accomplish more.

Make time for family

It’s unavoidable that work can get hectic at times, but that doesn’t mean that you should neglect your relationships. Do make it a point to spend time with your partner or family every day.

It can be as simple as preparing and having a meal together. Take the opportunity to interact and find out how your loved ones are doing. For those with children, be sure to bond with the little ones to show that you care.

Look after your health

Stress and long hours can take their toll on your mind and body. But you can better manage them by staying active and eating right. All it takes is a moderate 30-minute workout for you to feel more energised and refreshed. Munching on wholesome meals can also help to provide you with the right nutrients to rejuvenate your body.

The Importance of Rest

From lifting weights to running intervals, physical exercise can damage muscle fibres and create a feeling of soreness, which is a sign for your body to rest. It’s during rest periods that muscles have time to reconstruct or recover in stronger formations and increase in size.

Research suggests that because muscle soreness can peak two days post-exercise, a minimum of 48 hours of rest is optimal to allow recovery and pervent injury. Sleep is also important as it is during our slumber that Growth Hormone (GH) levels are at their highest.
