1. Build downtime into your schedule.

When you plan your week, make it a point to schedule time with your family and friends, and activities that help you recharge.

2. Drop activities that sap your time and energy.

Take stock of activities that don’t enhance your career or personal life, and minimize the time you spend on them.

3. Rethink your errands.

Consider whether you can outsource any of your time-consuming household chores or errands, or trade/exchange services (babysitting, cooking meals, trips to cleaners, etc.) with friends.

4. Get moving.

Exercise may ultimately help you get more done by boosting your energy level and ability to concentrate.

5. A little relaxation goes a long way.

Even during a hectic day, take 10 or 15 minutes to do something that will recharge your batteries (read a novel, take a bath, do a hobby, plan a getaway).
