Spreading out meetings to avoid meeting-heavy days
Business Insider recently published an interesting article highlighting the extreme increase of meetings as a result of everyone working from home. People are actually spending more than double of their time in meetings, so if you feel like you've been bombarded with meetings since the pandemic started, you're definitely not alone. However, there are definitely ways to fix this, and in turn improve your work-life balance (goodbye weekend work days!). If you get invited to a meeting on a day with an excessive amount of meetings already, definitely bring it up to your boss to suggest having it on a less busy day, or if you're the one scheduling the meeting, definitely consider a lighter day to have it.
