Have you ever found yourself wondering how full-time content creators post videos every week, sometimes more than once a week? Have you ever been frustrated because your channel isn’t getting the views or likes it “needs” to be successful? If so, do not worry. I have a few tips for you. These tips I’m about to share with you have helped me learn to balance all of the things I do in a day and keep my channel going strong with great content every week. These tips are sure to work for any member of the community.
We all know that time is a vital part of running a successful blog. We need time to make thumbnails, write video descriptions, gather footage, edit our videos, etc. Sometimes we may feel like we don’t have enough time for these things. You need to manage your time properly in order to get all of the important things done while still leaving some free time for yourself! After all, you’re doing this for fun and if you’re not enjoying it then why are you doing it?
So, how can you better manage your time? I have a few tips for you that have really helped me.
1) Prioritize What You Do In A Day
This might be the most important tip on my list. It’s so important to remember what is most important while still being able to get everything done. If you find yourself watching videos on your phone while you’re trying to get ready in the morning, try changing that habit.
You should be using that time for something productive like getting some extra footage or editing a video. Spend about ten minutes of downtime each day dedicated to brainstorming ideas for future videos and content.
2) Make A Schedule And Stick To It!
Creating a schedule may seem too daunting to start, but I promise this will really help you get into the habit of getting things done. Just like any new routine, it may be hard to stick to at first, but eventually, you’ll hardly have to think about it and it will just become part of your everyday lifestyle.
You can also use your schedule to block off some time for yourself. Make sure you are taking at least an hour out of the day just for doing whatever you want to do! It’s important that you get this time in order to keep your mind sane and help with mental health.
3) Find A Good Work Environment
I know this may seem like an odd tip, but trust me. If you find yourself working in a cluttered or distracting environment, try changing it. You will notice that your brain will automatically get distracted when there are so many other things going on around you. So next time, try finding somewhere quiet, clean, and free of distractions. This may be your room or even the library. Just do what works best for you!
4) Take Breaks
Now, this tip is super important! It’s easy to get frustrated when life gets in the way of our time management. So it’s really important to take breaks throughout the day. Nothing is worse for productivity than getting burnt out. If you need to take a break, do it! Just make sure to get back to whatever you were doing.
Last but not least, exercise is an excellent way to keep your mind healthy and stress-free. For some people like me, I get super anxious and frustrated if I don’t get to go on a walk or work out for at least an hour. It helps me relieve my stress and it’s really good for your mental health! So if you can fit in exercise with your schedule, do it. Here’s how I get my daily walk done during the cold winter months.
I know that managing all of the things might seem impossible at times, but just remember that everyone starts somewhere. There’s no need to stress yourself out. It’s all about working smarter, not harder.
