Cooking a Decent Meal
Time Required: The internet is a virtual smorgasbord of 30-minute recipes—but let’s call it 45 minutes (in case you’re a slow prepper or need to run to the store).

Where to Find It: A 2016 survey of 1,500 people found that employees spend an average of 5 hours and 18 minutes a week answering work emails from home; per day, that’s just over 45 minutes. So turn off your notifications and don an apron. The office emergency, real or imagined, can wait until the dishes are cleared.
