It is hard to believe that it has almost been 2 month since the last time I sat down and took the time to blog something.
I am sorry.
As a Wellness Coach and Mental Health advocate, it is my job to be consistent.
And I am sorry I have failed to deliver consistent content but I am not sorry for the fact that these last two months were focused on improving myself.
With that said, It is all about finding a balance…. something I suck at.
It is difficult to find a harmonious balance when you are trying to juggle work, personal obligations, relationships, school, starting your own business and your own mental health wellness.
Lately I have been in a state of equilibrium. Mainly, just going with the flow of life.
I am happy, content, and in-love….. with myself.
What have I been doing to manage my life? (besides blogging)
A list of overall goals has helped keep my life organized. My current goals focus on:
work, school, starting a business, my mental wellness and relationships.
Daily task list
A list of daily tasks and obligations keeps me focused. A typical day may look like:
Gym, Study, Rest, Social Media, Blog, Rest, Self-discovery, Rest. (Rest periods are typically 15 to 30 mins in length, and sometimes I have to throw in annoying personal obligations (obviously) into the mix, like laundry and groceries). I use Google Keeps for creating Goal and task lists.
Prioritize the day
What is the most important thing(s) that needs to be done now?
What can wait? What can be delegated?
Sometimes things come up that may need to be prioritized into your day, like a family member or animal falling ill, or a friend needing someone to talk to. The most valuable piece of advice that I can give you is LEARN TO BECOME FLEXIBLE WITH CHANGE.
Establish a routine and schedule
Having a routine is an essential part of my mental physique. It keeps me calm, enhances my focus, decreases my anxiety, and keeps me consistent. A routine is a sequence of actions that flow regularly. My daily routine typically looks like: Wake up by 8am, Post to social media, eat breakfast by 8:30-9am, hit the gym by 10am, shower, lunch by 1pm, study or read (to enhance my knowledge) for 2 to 4 hours (sometimes longer). dinner by 6pm, evening self-care (personal leisure reading, painting, journaling, hang out with friends), bed by 10pm (always).
Self Care seems to be a growing trend that coaches are really emphasizing the importance of these days, why? Because it keeps you mentally fit. Self care doesn’t always need to mean extravagant things like pampering yourself with $200 spa days. It simply means to take time out of your day to focus on your personal needs, which can mean anything from personal hygiene, eating a nutritious meal, exercising, engaging in self’discovery journaling, to spending time with loved ones.
Most importantly, Keep life simple.
Stop over complicating it.
