The big secret to daily efficiency? Park the phone and pare down your bathroom stash.
Answering emails on the toilet isn’t saving you time – it’s killing your morning. “You lose efficiency when you make decisions, because your brain faces lag time and each choice forces you to stop,” says Allyson Lewis, founder of the7minutelife.com, a website dedicated to time management.
Pausing to like a few Instagram posts, dig through your sock drawer or search for your shampoo in a jumble of bottles costs you valuable minutes. If you’re always frazzled as you prepare for your day, you may need an efficiency overhaul. Start by stepping away from your smartphone; then set aside time to organise your clothes. Finally, declutter your bathroom by using products that eliminate steps.
