While I’m trying really, really hard not to meticulously plan it all out – because that never really works, does it? – I’m anticipating happy times.
I have this beautiful vision of what I want my life to look like, and I believe that consciously making choices is the way to get there…even if the “there” changes every now and then.
There are several resources available that address this very concept, a few of which I’ve listed below:
To me, it’s all about knowing why I’m making the choices that I am.
Am I doing something just because I think should be, because someone else is doing it or because it’s moving me towards the life I envision for myself?
And my goal is that my answer would continually be the latter. So I’ll keep you posted.
As for me, I feel like I can finally breathe. And I’m ready for 2014. In which we plan to make very few life changes.
Right now I don’t have a tradition schedule to force me out of bed in the morning, so it’s important to me that I find ways to combat potential laziness. For the past two weeks it’s really helped me get my day started right when I sign up to attend a Pure Barre class in the morning.
Sometimes it’s at 6 a.m., sometimes it’s at 8:30 (or okay, some days even 9:30), but regardless of the time, it’s helps me to set a schedule. If class is at 6, I know I need to get my butt to bed early the night before, and if I’m not going until 9:30, I make sure to get up a little early (as in the 7 o’clock hour) to get some things done beforehand. I’ve read a lot of research regarding the benefits of early morning workouts, and I know for me it just helps to start my days off right.
I’m also a big planner, so every Sunday I make time to sit down and plan out my week. I set some goals, list some to dos to be accomplished and make sure I have an overall good balance planned for the upcoming week.
I found this list on Pinterest & thought I would share. You know I love me a good list.
