Hello and good morning!
How did your week go? I hope you had a wonderful productive weak. Have you started cropping new routines for the new year yet?
I love my routines I actually rely on my routines probably more than what I think I do! Did you catch last week’s blog about why I have my routines. With what routines I will always keep and which ones I can move around more! I will leave a link for that blog make sure to go and have read if you have not already!
Do you have routines already or you getting ready to start one? Maybe you don’t do routines at all and I’m here to tell you you should they are a LIFE SAVER!
When it comes time to the new year is usually when someone is like I need a better routine! It doesn’t need to be at the beginning of the year or, even at the beginning of a week you can create or start a routine anytime you are ready!
When I sit down and look over my routines whether something’s not quite working, I feel a little too stressed at certain times of the day or life is just totally went wonky for a little bit and something needs change! I will always sit down and be ready to move some stuff around on my routines!
Now, with this said I also will say that I have been using routines for so many years now that I automatically know what chores will help me the most on what times of the day without needing to try to move those chores! For an example every morning I unload the dishwasher, start a load of laundry, get the kids with lunch ready, get them up get them going you know the normal stuff!
With that, I have done a bunch of different things and guess there are some things that I would like to put back into my evening routine that have been in my morning routine that I feel would help my morning go smoother however, when things have stayed the same for so long it can be hard to break that routine. This is because if you do a routine for so long it’s becomes a habit and not a routine! This is why I always say keep with your routines it will get better if it’s not helping you then change it. A routine is set to help you!
MAKING A ROUTINE!
When it comes to making your routine I always suggest to start small. This is because we tend to throw a whole bunch of stuff on to our list and wonder why we didn’t get it all done!
I suggest we start with 3 tasks that you have to do in the morning. This can be any three tasks it can even be tasks that you already do and don’t really realize it this will help you see the times and the different ways of making your routines!
I also I suggest you start with you’re basic routines at a time! This will allow you to see your time and your ability to do certain tasks at a certain block of the time! Let me explain this a little more!
Let’s start with a morning routine! And I tend to start with a morning routine because that is the time of day that everybody seems to be the most rushed most frazzled in the most stress.
The first thing you need to decide is how long is your routine going to take you from. Is your morning routine from when you get up to when say your kids go to school if that’s what they’re doing oh, maybe it’s when they’re going for their first nap maybe it’s when you were heading out the door to make it to work on time! No matter what your morning looks like everybody has a morning and that is why a morning routine is important for anyone!
When starting your morning routine start small! Start with between 3 and 5 tasks to get done in that certain time frame that you have! These tasks may just be to make your bed, get dressed and maybe unload the dishwasher. The chances are your mornings have more tasks already involved in it. There’s probably more tasks but you’re doing out of habit than what you realize you were doing.
I say that you are probably doing more than what you realize because when you are doing a habit you don’t think about doing it it is just that I have it now. Think about some of the habits that you do in the morning that would probably be on somebody else’s morning routine. For example when you get up a lot of the time you are probably on autopilot not realizing exactly how much you were doing when you were doing it. It is like that for I think literally everyone just because you don’t think about it doesn’t mean you’re not actually doing. Do you might not need to put some stuff on your morning routine but it could just across the the off wink wink 😉 😜.
Some of these tasks could include something like making your bed, getting dressed, brushing your teeth, making lunches, making your coffee Etc you get my point. Just because it isn’t a big cleaning task or organizing task doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be on the list! Not everything on your list needs to be a big task just because it’s not a big nagging task doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be done.
This is where I was saying but it doesn’t matter what is on your routine because it’s your routine. This is meant to make your time frame that you were working with more productive more calm and making more time for what you want to do.
So for this week’s blog I’m going to leave it at that. I have plans on doing routine talks, planning talks, organizing tips all of that fun! It’s going to be a fun, balance year here!
I hope you will join me for all the different topics that I am planning on sharing and learning about and just trying to get better at. I will leave the links to my other social media pages I have high hopes for myself to have much more daily posts on the pages.
Got something that you would like to talk about? Did you want to see more of my daily focus chores? Maybe some daily post on the cleaning tools than I am using! Leave a comment down below I would love to hear what you would like to come out of 2022 this year.
Until next week week!
Have a wonderful day, a great weekend and a productive week!
Bye for now!
