NEW HABITS TO MOTIVATE

Updated: Apr 13


Create Muscle Memory for Productive Daily Routines





MAKE YOUR BED


  • sets the tone for the rest of the day

  • makes the entire room look tidy

  • if your pet gets on the bed during the day, add a throw blanket for them to lay on - it's easier to toss into the laundry

  • helps create a nighttime ritual of 'turning down the bed' to signal sleep





CREATE A 'TO DO' LIST


  • keep things simple and don't spread yourself too thin

  • start with 3-5 tasks

  • make one simple task (ex: change sheets on bed, make 5 folders for emails)

  • highlight 1 item as priority

  • cross off completed items - this promotes a feeling of accomplishment and helps establish the 'list' routine





OPEN MAIL


  • sort mail near recycling bin

  • separate into categories: Action/To Pay, Recycle, Shred

  • put action & shred into marked bins or baskets to separate (shredding is a great task for 'to do' list)

  • write action step on small colored post it notes and attach to paper

  • collect catalogs to unsubscribe (this is another great project for 'to do' list)








START A JOURNAL

  • there is no right or wrong way to journal - forget perfection

  • don't make it sound good - self consciousness is the enemy of writing

  • relieves stress & provides clarity

  • keeps memory sharp

  • helps set & achieve goals

  • Journal ideas: goal setting - positive self talk - dump for days stress - ideas for work, vacation, play - food journal - dreams - self reflection - gratitude - diary of the days events

  • have fun - you can add several elements - you don't need to choose just one










TIP: add a stylish open top container for dirty clothes in your bedroom - toss them in as they come off
