Learning to Balance: A New Daily Routine
Saturday, August 03, 2013
This was one of my projects today...
I've been wanting to figure out some sort of routine for a while now so I am glad I finally decided to sketch one out. Then I decided to make it look pretty with excel!
I'm super excited because I started with making sure I get 8 hours per sleep a night, with adding some "winding down" time in there to lay in bed and read, journal, etc.
Also, something new is the two 1 hour exercise slots. I really wanted to put more emphasis on moving more, even though I spend all morning at work walking around, lifting, etc. Now there are some days where I will work until 10:30 so that is why I left a white space between the green and the red and also another reason for the two exercise spots. There will be no excuses not to get in at least an hour of exercise everyday!
I also do work some weekend days, but I kept Saturday and Sunday flexible enough (like putting both church times in so we can pick whatever one works that week and other low key things like crafts and weekly planning) that it won't be hard to adjust.
Obviously schedules change but this should be good for another month or two. Soon enough I will be on all 3am shifts. But after a while I won't need to go to the chiropractor 3 times a week so it all evens out. Well, until I complicate things with adding a second job.
Hoping this is one of the steps to less stress and more balance!!!!
