Another option for finding the time to learn a new skill is to learn how to better budget every moment of your day.
This is a great option because most people understand how a budget works. You might typically think about money when you're budgeting, but time is often just as valuable — if not more.
You only have 24 hours in a day to work with, so breaking those hours down is actually easier than you might think. Start by organizing the key areas in your life, including work, your home life, and the skill you want to learn. Write down how long each of them takes each day (or how much time you want to give each one).
Once you have the "key" areas down, you can fill the rest of your schedule in with smaller tasks. You'll quickly have a time budget outline
that you can adjust as needed. As with any other budget, you might have to change things periodically depending on how your needs change. Or, you can cut things out. If you found that you were spending too much money on dining out each week, you'd cut back so you could better balance your budget. You can find ways to do that with your time, too.
Try things like meal prepping to save time during the week, especially when you get home from work. You'll get the added benefit of increased energy and productivity
from making and eating healthy foods, rather than grabbing something at the drive-thru. Or, wake up an hour earlier to get through your morning routine. By making small changes and prioritizing the time it takes to do everything, you'll be able to learn a new skill without feeling rushed or overloaded.
