Creating a DAILY Schedule

If you struggle with "getting everything done" on the daily…👇🏼

...first, bump the book "Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less" by Greg McKeown up on your reading list (it's great as an audiobook as well!)

But today I want to give you some immediate tools to help make your life feel a little less like a nonstop hamster wheel and a little more PROactive.

If you're constantly feeling behind on life, how effective will nutrition and lifestyle habits be? How motivated will you be to add YET another thing to your life?

Step-by-step guide to creating a more effective daily schedule

😉1. Dump your day

2. Anchor your day

Choosing morning and evening anchors is the first step to creating order and becoming proactive creators of our lifestyle.

AM anchors:

  • Make your bed
  • Drink a big glass of water
  • Five minutes box breathing
  • Five sun salutations
  • Coffee/tea time unplugged
  • A daily devotional
  • A short walk
  • AM 3:1:1 Journal
    • Three gratitudes
    • One way you'll care for yourself
    • One intention for the day

PM anchors:

  • Dim lights once the sun sets
  • Short guided stretch
  • Guided meditation
  • Five minutes box breathing
  • Gua sha
  • Read (for enjoyment!)
  • PM 3:1:1 journal
    • Three wins
    • One way you recovered today
    • One way you can be better tomorrow

3. Identify your blocks

Organize daily tasks into overarching categories - then you'll block your time off for those categories. This results in less energy wasted switching tasks and helps you get more done by using the same kind of brain power.

Example daily block categories:

  • Kids/morning prep
  • Work/study
  • Movement/exercise
  • Housework
  • Mealtime
  • Meal planning or prep
  • Re-energizing/play
  • Free time
  • Enrichment

Example work block categories:

  • Admin
  • Email tasks
  • Project creation
  • Writing
  • Content creation
  • Studying/learning
  • Tracking & metrics
  • Planning
  • Financials

4. Experiment and PRACTICE

"The hardest part of any important tasks is getting started on it in the first place. Once you actually begin work on a valuable task, you seem to be naturally motivated to continue."
