I think that is a great idea! One thing I have been doing lately is drawing out the full month schedule as a grid with all of my habits on the left column and all of the days in the top row and filling in the boxes with a different color for each day. It is kind of like that Jerry Seinfeld tip about making a long chain of Xs every day he writes. Kind of nice to get a break from the phone too. And then accounting for all in the app once a day.
I think you’re on a great track by establishing your routine before entering your new environment. I’d reflect on that list and anticipate any roadblocks and identify tasks. Do you need to find a new gym? Do you need to find the right grocery store? The sooner you can address those items, the easier it will be to stick to your routine. But also, don’t be afraid to be flexible and open to the new things this change can offer. Keep your goals in mind and enjoy your new opportunities.
- 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??
