I had to convince myself that I deserve the results of dedicating time to my health. And that’s what I did.
Furthermore, do not only exercise when you are 100%. It is ok to not demand a personal record. See exercise as an investment in yourself, like your pension. Give a little to yourself each day.
2) Another thing I've noticed is that friends, family,etc bring different energy with then which makes it very difficult to stick to your routine, even when I have the time. The majority of the battle for me was realising this + verbalising it for me. So they come with energy = fun / anything else but exercise. Your energy (focus) = exercise. Realise that there's a battle of energies and you have to push yours to ensure you achieve your goal.
For example I routinely cycle to work. But also travel overseas with work. In this instance I develop a routine o can commit to under those circumstances (I take a folding bike!)
I also have a few apps available that can be done in a bed room when can’t head out.
The last idea is to gamify the situation and do extra chores, like vacuuming, and be very deliberate with the extra chores due to the guests!
Where there is a will there is a way!
- How could I effectively use my time without laziness
- I need this to be so simple. And struggle to now what to include and what to leave out. Too basic and they seem pointless. Too detailed and they seem to take up too much time I could be focusing on other things… any suggestions on how to prioritise and discriminate between tasks to include and task to accept as given.
- Do you write the small and mundane tasks like cook, go for a walk etc on your list?
- What do you include in your most basic routines- what is something that simply must be done no matter what?
- Do you write only a few tasks on your to do list, or do you write everything that you have to do and then pick the top three or so to get done today? I’m never sure which approach is most effective.
- Do you check and adjust your to do list throughout the day? How do you remember?
- Do you ever feel like you write to much stuff to do for one day?
- Do you write down your routines too or skip them since they are ‘routines’?
- Which order do you accomplish your tasks? Due date? Importance? Fun making it?
- what are some things you always put on your to do? do you find that having the same activity at the same space everyday makes you more likely or less likely to actually do it??
