How do you set a healthy routine?
We have all been overworked at some point and it never feels nice. So here is how to set up a routine that works and that won’t get you to the point of exhaustion.
Here is how to set up your healthy routine:
⋒ write down what you do on a typical day, brainstorm
⋒ reduce/remove unwanted activities that drain you or that aren’t necessary
⋒ turn your day into a schedule,
⋒ make enough time for sleep
⋒ make time for eating and cooking healthy foods
⋒ make time for breaks, it is important to regenerate and take time to relax
⋒ give your new routine a test drive, does it work?
⋒ make changes based on your experience, switch up what didn’t feel right
⋒ repeat until you’ve got a routine that works. You can always do 6 months and switch it when it doesn’t feel like that’s what you need anymore!
Let’s keep it consistent!
Don’t we all say that we’re going to do this and that and then we only get half the things done and get discouraged?
Here is how to keep it going:
- be consistent with time
- make it fun
- reward yourself
- be prepared
- set small goals, breaks each large goals into smaller ones
