self care: 5 things to delegate this month

No one can get it all done alone. We may not all be able to travel with a glam squad, but with countless apps popping up, we can offload those little but important tasks to free up brain bandwidth and be able to do the things that only we can do. Remember, our most valuable commodity is time.

Take this very important priority off your brain with apps like Acorns and Digit. I especially love how Digit will learn your spending habits and automatically save for you accordingly. Brill!

What takes me an entire day, a professional can do in a couple of hours. Maybe skip one dinner out this month and call in a pro! Check out reputable service sites like Thumbtack or Bark.

Grocery delivery can actually change your life. With options like Instacart, Shypt, and, now, AmazonFresh, you can literally shave hours off your to-do list. I can personally vouch for how much of a game changer it's been in my own life, and I highly encourage you to give it a try, even just once, to see what life is like not having to push a cart under florescent bulbs for produce.  

This month, I challenge you to find one task to delegate to a Virtual Assistant for your personal life and one task in your business life. It can be as simple as booking movie tickets or sending you a list of airbnbs to review for your next business trip. There are many great VA sites out there with assistants both domestically and abroad like TaskBullet or Zirtual.

Have more time to do what matters most by delegating or automating tasks in your life.

This is in no way a comprehensive list of all the things you could automate or delegate, merely a handful. The purpose of delegating isn't to overwhelm you with more things to do, but rather off-load certain tasks from your daily / weekly / monthly "to dos" in order to spend more time doing the things that matter the most. You can choose one thing from this list to implement or pick all five! The choice is yours. So, I'm curious. Which did you decide to outsource? Tell me in the comments below!
