I need to figure out exactly what is important to me and what I really want. I know I've done this before, recently, but we are now back to school and the entire schedule has changed. It was easy to stamp my foot and say that is it when I am on break and have all the freaking time in the world. Now that I am back to school, it is time to rethink it all.
I need to dissect my schedule/routine and see what I'm working with:
4:15 am Wake up, bathroom, brush teeth
4:20 am Empty dishwasher, make coffee
4:30 am Wake Hubby, meditate
4:40 am Bathroom break
4:50 am Shower, dress for walking
5:05 am Walk Mavy
5:30 am Get dressed, pack lunch, make more coffee, etc.
6:00 am Leave house
This puts me at school at around 6:30 am. My contract states that I need to be there by 7 am. So I theoretically have an addition 30 minutes in the morning. What if I set up a quick routine to do for say 15 minutes every morning? I dress to walk Mavy, I could use those clothes to do a quick workout.
Let's look at the evenings:
5:00 pm Get home
5:15 - 5:30pm Hang out in pool
5:30 - 6:00 pm Lay on couch and color or maybe do some Johns Hopkins
6:15 pm Eat dinner
6:30 - 7:15 pm Lay on couch and color
7:15 - 8:00 pm Clean up kitchen, prep for tomorrow, get ready for bed
So I easily have an hour in the evenings to do something. I don't need to lay on the couch and color over and over and over. Yes, it feels good to lay down and relax. It also feels good to shut my brain off and just do something mindless. But is that really necessary? No!!!
Okay, I'm going to put together a short routine to do in the morning. And I'm going to get back into Supernatural in the evenings. I'm going to shoot for 20 minutes of Supernatural every day.
Okay, we have friends coming over, so tomorrow I will put together a plan for the week. I just have to make it a habit. Once I work it into my routine I will be fine. But I may have to force it for a little while.
