How to Save Time, Reduce Stress, and Improve Your Work Life Balance

Marc and Angel Hack Life recently shared a list of 30 ways to save 30 minutes a day.  Their entire list of time saving ideas is great from a productivity perspective, but I noticed that some can also reduce stress and increase our sense of work-life balance:

#3 – Eliminate all distractions for a set time
#4 – Narrow the number of ventures you’re involved in
#5 – Plan ahead and start early (I definitely need to do more of this)
#6 – Organize your space (And this one)
#12 – Don’t mindlessly browse online ad infinitum
#15 – Write things down
#17 – Stop overanalyzing things (Yep, good reminder for me)
#22 – Just Say No!
#23 – Focus your attention on just one thing at a time (As I grow older, I’m finding that I’d rather focus on one thing than multitask on many things at the same time.)
#24 – Pare down your email inbox (I need to work on this one some more)
#26 – Relocate closer to your place of employment
#29 – Keep it simple
#30 – Spend minutes now to save hours later (I like this concept!)

This week, I’ve decided to focus on #5 – planning ahead and starting early, and #30 – spend minutes now to save hours later, and #6 – organize your space, which I know will help save me time, money and frustration.

What about you?  Can you relate to anything on this list? What else would you add?
