It is important to have a plan for you week that is written down. This is different than having your schedule in your head. When we keep our schedules in our head, we tend to achieve less in a week. This is how we can begin to feel like all we do is work, or we never have enough time to get things done. Plan your week with your priorities in mind. Follow the steps below to plan your week, everyone has to find what works for them. Try the steps below and see if they work for you, you may find that some of them work for you but not all of them, take what works and leave the rest.
1. Make a list of everything you need to get done this week
2. Make a list of what you would like to do this week
3. Make a list of some goals you would like to achieve this week
*It may be helpful to be sure the following appear somewhere on your list as well:
-exercise, reading, budgeting, cleaning, eating and socializing
There are several ways that you can schedule your week. Some people use their phones or apps for calendars, others simply use a notebook or you can use a paper planner. You can make it as simple or complicated as you want or need it to be, the goal is to just get started. Once you decide on the method you wish to use, you will need to add in hours for work and for school. Once you have accounted for that period of time, you can start delegating other events from your list of priorities. It's good to get a routine. For example maybe you go to the gym on Mondays and Wednesdays, or you vacuum Tuesday and Thursday.
Planning your week would also include meals and the time when you plan to get your meals.
Take care everyone, we hope that this is a start for you and that you are motivated to start planning your life.
