- They classify their work.
If you have a demanding job, it’s unrealistic not to bring it home, but successful people carve out part of the evening to be with their families and are careful to split work into shifts instead of trying to do all at once. A good break may boost your productivity as a bonus. You may enjoy your family time, and when you return back to your work, you may have a fresh perspective on how to get things done.
- They do not watch TV.
I know you have just rolled your eyes at this but its the truth. Nothing completely wrong with TV, but it is often a mindless default and we consume more than we like. Cutting back, only watching a specific show or news and no aimless channel surfing frees you up for other goals you want to accomplish.
- They exercise.
Successful people who exercise in the evenings plan it in advance; they do not assume they will just happen to be in the mood for and have time to go to the gym. People often exercise after they leave work and before they head home so they are less likely to get distracted.
- They spend time with their partners.
Successful people make sure to nourish their romantic relationships, even when time is in short supply. A dinner together, a stroll down the road and just talk for 45 minutes is just fine.
- They make time for friends too.
Sometimes having any time for yourself is tough, let alone a social life. Setting time aside for the special people in our lives often becomes difficult. If your friendship or relationships are truly important to you, then make that time. They plan ahead. Pick a date, even if it’s a whole month when the day comes, the time you spend with that person will be even more special.
- They have a pre-bedtime routine.
A routine at night means better time management. It even makes it easier for working parents to hop back online after their kids have gone to bed. They also think about getting things organized for the coming day, which should be part of the routine too. Pick out clothes, pack their bags and suitcases, and prepare all you need for breakfast the following morning.
- They prioritize sleep.
Successful people know they think better and make smarter decisions after getting enough sleep,
