For me, the rituals come partially from the recommended steps in the particular in-app Journey I'm on, sure. But I also read self help books, try to follow empowering social media accounts, and am in therapy and actively have habits I'm trying to fix or build in. I try not to go overboard and fix everything at once, but grow steadily with my habits and changing my mindset. Some habits from a particular journey I delete from my checklist because they're so ingrained or unnecessary to do anymore.
I think a big part of it is being forgiving and constantly re-evaluating how things are going. It can be tempting for me to ignore stuff when I start missing goals, but constantly checking in with apps or calendars or a professional has been good for building up focus and rearranging goals/rituals necessary.
Over the years, my lifestyle has changed dramatically too. re-evaluating has been absolutely necessary for moving around my habits as my scheduling and lifestyle kinda needs change. I meditate on the bus home instead of before work now that I work earlier shifts. Things like that.
- 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??
