My battery seems to be discharging a lot quicker recently! 
Is there anything I can do to slow this down without interruption of my usage.

Look at any new apps you downloaded or updated, as apps that run in the background and use stuff like location/Bluetooth/WiFi will use more power then normal

Discharging issues can occur for various reasons, the most notable being too bright a screen.

It could also be excessive background activity which can be observed by going into Settings > Battery and Device care > Battery. Use this to determine what apps are consuming the most power and whether it's viable to limit their background usage. (Sleep/Deep sleep)

Next I'd suggest running the optimisation service found in Settings > Device Care. It's worth toggling the auto optimisation on whilst you're here.

Finally, the worst case scenario is that the battery has reached its' life cycle.
