Quick blog today because I’ve had a busy couple of days at work and want an evening off to relax!
I say I’ve been busy, I’ve actually been pretty productive with what I’ve got done. When I set to do a job I’m good at focusing and not distracting myself until it’s done. This week I’ve boxed off a fair few tasks that have been sat on my to do list for a while and were at the point they HAD to be done.
That causes a bit of stress though, leaving things until you HAVE to do them.
What I much prefer to do is plan stuff in and get it done in comfortable time so I don’t feel that stress.
What has held me back from doing this has been my routine, I’ve not allowed my self the time to be in control. This means on occasions I’ve had to be reactive. That’s not how I like to work.
This in turn has a knock on effect on my training and nutrition as I’m rushed and sometimes some things have to give.
So my plan for the next few weeks is to nail my morning routine. Alarm goes off and I get up, no snooze button, no waiting until the last minute then having to rush around. By allowing myself time to stat my day right I know the rest of my day will fall into place as I’m generally good at time blocking my day, I just need to avoid the domino effect that happens if I start the day on the back foot.
To be honest there isn’t really a point to this blog, it’s more just my internal musings…. but if you are feeling overwhelmed at the moment, take a look at your week and pin point why, then work out what one change you can make that would improve that situation.
