Create a routine which you know you can stick to. Start extremely small. 1 or 2 activities. Think about the small steps that add up to the big goal. Don't put too much pressure on yourself. Tomorrow is the next day in the rest of your life. Make it a good one.
That has always been one of my struggles. I find that whatever I do as my very first thing upon opening my eyes, sets my day. If I simply fall to the floor and do Yoga, it’s going to be a good motivation day or if I start picking up and decluttering, I will continue with productivity. If I start with a passive meditation, it doesn’t work as well. However, if I wake in a high anxiety state or panic like state which is simply a hormonal surge, if I immediately do breath and calming work, my day goes much better. Also, long term, I find breath and meditative yoga or contemplative prayer almost always give me a calm, focused day. Hope that helps.
It takes being excited about something I’m doing that day. Wanting to be awake doing a thing… a good book, an adventure, friends coming over. (I wonder if there’s a way to make every day have something I’m excited to get up and do…)
- Which techniques have you found successful to stick to your to-do list as the day goes on?
- do you often empty your to do list?
- I’m a freak when it comes to organizing and etc. but since I started my own company. I always seem to have so many things to get done which was expected but a to do list becomes so overwhelming when I have a ridiculous amount of things to get done. Does anyone else have the same issue?
- Do you ever find that you’ve put more on your to-do than you can handle? What do you do when that happens?
- What’s a main reoccurring thing on your to do list?
- Do you prefer handwritten to do lists or digital ones?
- Which one do you think is more effective? A written to do list or through an apps to do list?
- How do you get started on a task when you’re not motivated?
- Yeah what do you think would be my best option to writing a to do list easiest to hardest longest to shortest how do you do yours and how does it help you
- Do you give your to-dos a time frame or exact time to do them at? Or do you allow yourself more flexibility?
