Establishing routines is a way to make sure you have consistency in your life. And who couldn’t use a little bit more of that??? Think of a routine as a repeatable to-do list. There are so many things in your day, week or year that you can create a routine to simplify, that will help everything run more smoothly. An extra bonus…with today’s technology you can do most of this on your PC or phone. You will reap the benefits within a short amount of time after implementing any of these routines.
Weekly & Monthly Routines
Monday- Desk Day- pay bills, write blog, meal plan
Tuesday- Errands- grocery shopping, post office, pet store
Wednesday- Projects- home, work, or seasonal
Thursday- Clean- deep clean one area of the home/office
Friday- Catch up Day- finish projects, tasks or contacts
There are so many more routines that can be created or referenced on the internet; Yard maintenance, Holiday preparation, or Party planning, just to name a few. Anything you can have a routine for (to-do list), will feel like a big change in the beginning, but I guarantee that it will be worthwhile in the long run. **Just remember, if you don’t get to all the things on your lists, you DID NOT FAIL, it’s not “All or Nothing.” Just start fresh tomorrow!
Wishing you an Uncluttered Life!
