HOW ARE YOU DOING RIGHT NOW?
So much is uncertain. Our days don’t look like they did last month or last year.
I find myself waffling and worrying without a routine and not much gets done. So, I created a printable for myself that focuses on positives, wellness, and routine building. I wanted to share it with you in hopes that it might help you too (linked below).
Shaping your time with intention helps focus on the now. Netflix and chill might just be what you need. But doing so everyday might put you in a rut, it does for me.
At the start of the day, I write down tasks I want to accomplish and set a loose routine that I follow throughout the day. Some people prefer to do this at the end of the day in preparation for the next. Find what works for you.
I find that a strict schedule is hard to follow right now with so much up in the air. So forgive yourself if things don’t go to plan. But don’t forget to set aside time to take care of yourself. It might be a quick meditation or a soothing bath. Something that’ll rejuvenate you for the next day.
WELLNESS AND GRATITUDE
Eating nutritious foods and staying reasonably active during this time are important. Tracking them helps you to stay mindful of that. Unhealthy foods here and there or a couple of days without exercise are ok (though, I’m not a doctor so listen to them first and foremost). But sometimes it happens too often (comfort foods are called that for a reason). So, I like to look back after a week or two to see what I’ve been doing and where I can be better.
Also, focusing on gratitude helps to start or end your day on a positive note. Studies have shown that it can also lower stress levels and help you sleep better at night.
Some days are better than others. Take advantage of the good ones and be kind to yourself when things don’t go as planned. Let’s do our best to keep our communities safe and healthy.
