I’ll recommend you use the rescue time app for your PC and Web activity tracker app (chrome extension) to get the statistical data about your time and activities on the web.
Then, You can start optimizing your time. To Start time optimization, I’ll recommend using the Pomodoro technique.
It is a time management technique that recommends dividing the task into blocks of time. For Example if content creation takes 90 mins.
Then you can devise those tasks into two different blocks.
45 minutes * 2 = 90 minutes.
Do 1 block in one sitting then take an 5-10 min break between that.
