Did you celebrate last Friday the start of your new life?
With friends? Around the table?
How was it? Did you had fun? Was it surprisingly nicer than expected?
Next week/month again?
Now I want you to start to use your journal as a diary. You don’t have to write in it everyday, but when you do, don’t forget the date. Write about what you did, what you were thinking, how you felt. What happend that made you start writing in your diary? Was it a good feeling? Was it because you were upset about something/someone? Was it something from your daily routine or was it because that action messed with your routine?
The first action of doing/meeting someone new is to go out. Nobody will come to your room to meet with you for the first time. You have to get yourself out there, start to explore!
You don’t have the time for it? Then create time!
Set up a daily routine. It will be hard in the beginning, but when you got the hang out of it, you will do everything just a little bit faster because your brain does it automatically.
And there you go… you created EXTRA time!
My daily routine starts at 4am in the morning – because I have to open my store at 6am. But after 2 weeks, my body was accustomed to the time and I started to wake up myself at 4am. Even the days when I was off. Waking up early is so nice! You have the whole day ahead of you! And I feel like I’m way more productive in the morning then in the evenings.
Most of the time I’m completely done with the day around 10pm, ready to go to bed.
I have to admit, it’s not always easy to wake up that early, some people work late, kids yelling or other things.
Just try to set up your daily routine, not the one that works for the neighbor or your niece. It’s your life, design it yourself, make it your masterpiece!
Make sure you add time to work, to commute, to eat but most important: time for yourself.
Make yourself the promise that, as of now, you will do everyday something for yourself. Something that makes you happy. It can be something small like walking home from work through the park, or taking a relaxing bath, reading a magazine, yoga, a 30 minute work out or even just listening to music or reading a blog.
Are you married, living together with the love of your life? Add time for the 2 of you. Just to sit together, to ask each other: Honey, how was your day?
Take some time to really set up your routine.
Remember there is 24 hours in a day and if you start to manage your time correctly, you will find a lot of time to do more fun things!
The moment you have your routing, stick to it. It will take you at least 21 days to get into your new routine. Motivate yourself to keep going, after a while you will be able to do whatever you want to without thinking about it.
– The key is not to prioritize your schedule, but to schedule your priorities –
