I don’t know about you, but 2020 feels like it’s gone on forever! I had so many goals, and things I wanted to accomplish this year, and I think we can all agree, Covid had other plans for everyone. I know I’m not the only one who feels like they’ve been in a funk for several months. I always feel like I need to be doing something, and then feeling guilty when I don’t. In normal circumstances, we would never have this mindset! So, I decided I needed to take action, and reclaim my 2020. In this week’s blog post, I’m sharing how I’m doing it!
It’s been so interesting living during this time. It feels kind of like there’s so much busyness around us all the time, and yet, somehow it also feels like things are moving so slow. It’s a weird balance that we all are having to navigate. Personally, I know I’ve been in my head, and over analyzing EVERY aspect of my days. Ya’ll, that’s downright unhealthy! So, I decided I needed to press pause, and reevaluate how I want the rest of 2020 to play out (to the best of my ability. Because, let’s be honest, we have no idea what’s going to happen.
1). Setting realistic, attainable goals
For example, a big one for me is cleaning out my closet. I know I have WAY too much stuff, and I desperately need to clean things out and get rid of unnecessary clutter. Another big one for me is making time everyday for personal development.
2). Setting a daily routine
I like to set certain blocks of time for certain activities. For example, I have certain times for working ob my business, the blog, and my workouts. That way, I know all of the important things I need to get done, get done!
3). Making a to-do list the night before
To piggy-back off of #2, I like to make my to-do list the night before. I put the most important action items at the top that are non-negotiable. Then, I put the rest at the bottom. That way, I always feel accomplished at the end of the day, because I know the most important things got sone. And, if I can accomplish more, it’s an added bonus!
4). Scheduling me-time
Ya’ll, this is such a big one! I always schedule time for myself at around 7:30-8pm every night. I turn off my computer, make my dinner, and indulge in my favorite activities as a nice way to end my day. By doing this, I always have something to look forward to!
5). Be excited for what’s to come
For me, I love the fall and transition into the holidays. So, knowing this time fo year is coming up definitely makes me excited!
