4 Ways for a Boss Babe to Automate Her Daily Life
You’re busy. Whether you’re raising kids, working a full-time job, or running a business, your schedule is probably packed. Well, what if there was a way to automate some of your daily habits? Not only would that save time, but it would help alleviate some of your everyday stress. Sounds too good to be true, right? It isn’t.
This article will cover four ways to help automate your life. From pre-scheduling your company’s social media posts to having your groceries delivered, these are the tools you should consider integrating:
1. Have Your Birth Control Delivered
If you regularly use any medication, like birth control, you’ve probably spent time waiting in a long line while a pharmacist filled your prescription. Not only is it time-consuming, but it can also be embarrassing — especially if you’re uncomfortable with people knowing you’re on birth control. And while there’s nothing to be embarrassed about, opting to have your birth control delivered can offer some privacy.
Whether you use the pill, patch, ring, or shot, you can have your birth control delivered to your front door. And you don’t even have to leave your house to consult with a healthcare provider. Thanks to healthcare companies like Nurx, you can meet with a professional and request a prescription 100% online. Then, all you have to do is sit back and wait for your delivery, which comes in discreet packaging.
These types of services also offer automatic refills, so you don’t have to remind your healthcare provider (or yourself) to refill a prescription. Not having to worry about your birth control might seem small, but it’s one less thing to add to your plate.
2. Schedule Posts On Social Media
Whether you use social media for your job or personal reasons, it can be time-consuming. While an effective marketing tool, you may not want to spend hours editing photos, responding to comments, finding new followers, etc. This is especially true if you have other marketing initiatives to focus on. Thanks to social media automation, you don’t have to do the work yourself.
With social media automation, you can use a scheduling tool to publish your posts. You can use chatbots to respond to comments on your behalf, follower-management tools to grow your brand and monitoring tools to track analytics. Social media automation does the mundane work for you, so you don’t have to stress.
Thankfully, there are several social media software options. Hootsuite, SocialPilot, Sprout Social, or Zoho Social are a few to consider. Make sure to research and read reviews before downloading one of these apps. Also, make sure to compare prices. Some offer free versions for personal use, but prices go up for professional quality.
3. Try Online Subscriptions
Online subscription services have skyrocketed in recent years. And for a good reason — these subscriptions can help automate your daily habits, like going to the grocery store. Instead of taking time every week to write a list, drive to the store, and shop, you can sign up for a subscription service. With these, all you have to do is pick your favorite items and wait for them to be delivered. What could be easier?
And believe it or not, there are many different grocery services available. A popular one is Thrive Market. Once you sign up for their membership, you take a quiz to determine your food interests. Once that’s done, you can schedule how often you want these shipments delivered. You can also set the shipments up for automatic delivery, so you don’t have to think twice about it.
There are also third-party delivery services, like Instacart and Doordash. With these, you fill up your grocery list via the app, and a personal shopper picks up your goods and delivers them to you. What’s nice about these services is that they remember your orders. You can simply choose to have the items from your previous orders delivered again. This saves you from having to re-add all your groceries again.
4. Use Technology For Your Bills
Automating your finances is one of the best things you can do for peace of mind. Not only does it save you time, but it can help you avoid late fees and overdraft charges. And luckily, it’s easier now than ever to set up this type of automation. But first, spend some time figuring out exactly what you want to automate.
If you haven’t already, consider setting up direct deposit with your employer. With this, your paycheck is automatically deposited into your checking account. You can also have some of your paychecks automatically sent to your savings account.
Another way to automate your finances is with a budgeting app. Believe it or not, these apps can review your finances for you. They track your income and expenses and monitor your savings account to determine a realistic budget. This means you can retire those excel sheets you’ve been using. Some budgeting apps will also let you set up automated payments, so you don’t have to remember to pay your bills.
According to a study, almost 80% of people experience stress so significantly it affects their physical health. While many things cause stress, there’s no denying that having a busy schedule can have a negative impact on your overall well-being. That’s why finding ways to automate daily habits is so important. It can save you time and give you more energy to focus on things that make you happy.
