I’ve been seeing some INTERESTING posts from people on social media recently …
- Haven’t showered in days
- Don’t ever change out of their pajamas
- Waste time and are bored every day because they don’t have a plan
- Not getting simple and small things done (that are normally no big deal)
- Are suffering from more anxiety and stress than usual, because they don’t have any normalcy in their lives!
Hey, there’s NO judgment here! In fact I’ve been guilty of one or two of these ….
But right now it’s more important than EVER to make sure that we’re doing what we can to keep our head in the game and not let ourselves slip!
If this sounds like you (or someone you know!) then a little structure may be exactly what you need.
Creating a ‘day plan’ of this will do SO MUCH to help keep your stress levels lower, stay on-track with your goals, and even have more fun in your life!
Who knew that when this year kicked off, it would turn out the way it has so far?
The best thing we can do is roll with it, adapt our routine, and get on with life the best we can.
If you don’t have a ‘day plan’, it’s like playing a game of dominoes.
If one little thing goes awry, it can cause a cascade of events that can throw off your entire day … or worse! And that can lead to:
- Stress (which you know is bad for your health). Which can lead to …
- Poor sleep. Which can lead to …
- Not-so-healthy meals. Which can lead to …
- Little or no exercise / activity.
Now imagine the OPPOSITE of all that: having a sense of peace and feeling in control … sleeping great at night … having more energy … and feeling proud of yourself because you’re taking control of your day!
Just a few things plugged into a day plan can make a WORLD of difference! Check out this sample:
MY STAY HOME DAY (times are estimates!)
7:00am : Morning Ritual: wake up to the radio
7:15am: Work (check emails and texts with quick responses)
7:30am : Breakfast Ritual : hot oatmeal w/ 4 fruit cut up, and a splash of greek yoghurt
8:00am : Virtual Training client
9:00am : Workout
10:30am Coffee or hot lemon/honey water with Work (emails/texts, virtual training client, work and fun webinars)
2:00pm Lunch – get out in the yard for a breath of fresh air
3-7:00pm More work: computer work, virtual training, emails/texts/webinars – phone calls
7:30pm Dinner and down time, read or watch a series Netflix
10:00pm Sleep-time read and/or code word book to take my mind of the day
Take a few minutes today to create YOUR perfect day plan – set yourself up for success by being realistic about how much you actually can accomplish in a day.
And then hold yourself accountable to following it.
You will be amazed how after just a day or two you will feel so much more relaxed and at peace.
Make it an amazing day!
