Read what's new. Once.
One way to save time is to reduce the frequency at which we read the news (including "not really news" like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.), but that's not very easy when the devices we use daily are built to keep us engaged, almost mindlessly.
So you can try to develop a routine where you set aside a time in the day to read the news once per day, and that's it.
Think about all the time you'll save throughout the rest of the day.
"News, calm" helps with that, and it's only $20 / year.
How does "News, calm" help?
By receiving a single email with "the news" per day, you are able to decide when to create a time-block to read the news, and not need to check it again on that day.
Try it out. You'll see it's a great way to save time.
