As we engage in various situations in our home and work lives, there may be situations that occur that bring a sense of heaviness. Though our days as adults may not be filled with such simple moments, I wonder if we might be able to map out time to have similar ones? Whether it is the list of things that need to be done or the emotions that are circling us, clearing a path is important for our own energy and that of those we encounter.
These lists can be anything from doing laundry to composing a financial plan for yourself and will elevate the mind chatter and help alleviate missing things. I know some people who create a list with hours/times added to it. Personally, that's a bit restrictive because there are times during my day that I know I need to get a shopping list together and balance my financial record, but my energy level may be drained that day. So, for me, having a general to-do list within a week highlighting deadlines is a more effective solution.
Your days can get hectic and time doesn’t always allow for all of the things you’d like to get accomplished. Planning opens up time, energy and gives way to mental clarity. Calm mind - happier heart.
There is no denying this has been a trying time, but we should not allow ourselves to become pessimistic for the future. We should instead focus on the positives that have also come out of it.
Meal planning may not seem to be the first thought when it comes to self-care, but it really can be a time and stress saver!
Remember when your days were simple? Would it be the Monopoly game or Twister that would get pulled out of the closet?
Pay attention to what your heart is seeking. Eliminate a stack of to-dos and moments of regrets.
When it comes to daily living, your schedule is often full of your own tasks and needs, coupled with those of your loved ones.
