Not that enjoying a hobby like
Or anything along those lines, but having more time in your day to do more things and fill it with more of the things you WANT is really what it’s all about.
So that’s what this post is gonna be about:
- Being more productive as an
- Cutting out bad habits related to watching
And anything in between that’s beneficial.
Let’s talk about it.
How to watch
1. Stop trying to watch everything at the same time
This is a bad habit that almost everyone falls into because it’s easy to. I mean after all when there are so many:
animeshows that are good.
- Anime from different genres to watch.
animewith lots of potential, hype, etc.
It’s easy to try and watch them all at once just because you can, but in reality you end up:
- Not remembering.
And being able to recall the information properly because you’re overwhelming yourself with too many
There are over 10,000+ anime shows in existence. There’s no sense in trying to rush or race your way into watching as many as you can for the sake of it.
Not everything is worth watching, and not every
Watch what makes sense and leave it at that. You can get to all the other ones later if that you’re serious about watching it (and being productive).
2. Never watch
anime during the day
When you do anything during the day or earlier in the day you end up building a habit out of it, and it’s harder to backtrack or eliminate that thing once it becomes the norm,
The day is a time when there’s more going on, you’re naturally busier, getting things done, outdoors, or whatever the case may be… but night time is where it’s at.
That’s the one time in the day that everything calms down, is chilled, less distractions, and so on. And it’s easier to watch
- No need to feel guilty about being unproductive.
- Everything else is out of the way (priorities).
- There’s nothing else left to do until tomorrow (in general).
And it’s the best time to wind down and let your hair down if you wanna put it like that.
3. Binge it, or pace it
When watching an
- Binge the
animecompletely without stopping
- Or move at a steady pace and watch a bit at a time.
When talking about time management, productivity, being efficient, and using your time more wisely when it comes to
Bingeing works if you choose to do it occasionally or on a certain day, etc. Like a Saturday, Sunday, or the weekend if you’re willing. But that works only for
If you choose to move at a steady pace, an
Anymore extreme than that whether bingeing or pacing, and it’ll do you no good if productivity is the goal.
4. Don’t force yourself to watch what you don’t enjoy
This happens almost every season when it comes to
When watching an
- Is the
animeyou’re watching gonna get worse or better?
- Is it worth watching?
- Are you enjoying it in the early stages?
If you’re not enjoying the
Sometimes it’s worth considering (beforehand) if people say it gets better later on or not. Otherwise from a “time” point of view, forcing yourself is only gonna waste your time and energy.
It’s false hope at some point. Bingeing is a good way to find out faster.
5. Start the clock
Some people don’t even know how long they spend doing things during the day. And that’s regardless of whether it’s
One way to find out or get an idea is to run the stop watch on your phone or computer’s clock. And then start grinding away at whatever it is you wanna measure the time of.
In this case that would be
If you can measure it you’re better off as far as efficiency and productivity.
6. Zone in
We all have a bad habit of being on the phone and being surrounded by TONS of tech while watching
Look at the
If time matters to you from an efficiency and productivity point of view, then wasting it distracted while trying to watch an
It means rewinding a lot, backtracking a lot, pausing a lot, and faffing about in general, making it harder to be efficient and manage your time better.
You can’t beat headphones. They’re one of the best inventions we’ve had in the past 2 decades.
When wearing headphones you shut out everything else but the thing you’re listening to and paying attention to. Which is obvious, but it’s so simple it’s easy to miss or ignore it.
More chance of being distracted and wasting time WITHOUT headphones than with headphones.
anime more efficiently:
- Stop trying to watch everything at the same.
- Never watch
animeduring the day.
- Binge it or pace it.
- Don’t force yourself to watch what you don’t enjoy.#
- Start the clock (timer).
- Zone in.
- Wear headphones.
