A Day in the life of me

A Day in the Life of Me

It’s a new year, and each January I take time to try to improve my life. I don’t like to call it a new years resolution, it’s more like a new years inventory & assessment. This year I came across fellow blogger Natalie Sissons’s 15 Days to Freedom Blog Challenge and decided to take part. The challenge for Day 1 is to identify our Daily Success Plan and morning ritual, or in other words, what do we need to do to have that best, most productive day.

My Daily Ritual

    Wake up between 5-7am having got at least 7 hours of sleep.
    Feed the dog (Zoe) & take her for a 30 minute walk.
    …By 7-9am depending on the day, either dive right into 1-2 hours of work, go to the gym or aerial class. This just depends on the day.
    I always take a break between 11:30 – 12:30pm to make & eat the lunch on my Emeals Paleo Plan.
    I take a break between 5:00-7:00pm to prepare & eat the Emeals dinner on my Paleo meal plan and take care Zoe out for a walk again.
    After dinner I am either getting back to work or going to an aerial class depending on the day. I wrap up my day by 9pm no matter what so I can relax and get to bed at a decent hour because my body just does not sleep in. I also take 2 Nighttime Recovery to make sure that I get a quality night’s sleep.
    I always use a to-do list to stay focused & on task. Since I have at least 3-4 “jobs” going at any given time, it’s best when I have different “to-do” list with deadlines for each task.
    I don’t leave the day with a detailed list of what needs to be done the next day.

There it is. It took me about a year to really nail down the schedule and systems that work, but so far this is it. I have observed that I function best mentally when each day is different & my schedule is somewhat flexible. It gets stressful for me when I try to get too specific of make each day exactly the same. The only un-moveable things in my schedule are breakfast, lunch, and dinner- everything else is flexible.
