    • Email: Create batch zones/time frames for answering emails. When you’re in this mode, you’ll be able to focus in on these questions or concerns anyone has for you.
    • Phone Calls: Stop worrying about taking phone calls throughout the entire day. Start making them during one time frame. Let others know your hours of availability.
    • Chores: For chores at home or meal prep, you can cook during one or two nights of the week. Have a certain day of the week that you most like to use for cleaning or laundry.
    • Shopping & Errands: The great perk to this one is that it will not only save you time, but gas too. Make sure to create a list beforehand so you don’t forget anything.
    • Reading: Save articles, magazines, books and more in a folder on your computer or phone. This works well for students and teachers, especially who may have more required reading.
