The other day was a nice embodiment of a successful day full of productivity and grace and for preservation of tips and tricks to ensure more of them, I thought I'd blog about it. Specifically, what goes into my ideal schedule:
Early to rise: I love waking up before my alarm. I've read before this can be a sign of being well rested and I can attest this is usually how I feel when it happens. At 6:45am, I am stirring to get up and on to my day.
Sip and smooth: hot lemon water for the win. This is not groundbreaking insight because this is a common beverage of choice for many for varying reasons. I love it early morning, it just makes my whole body wake up and induces a calmness that clears my mind to take on the tasks before me. I try to meditate at this point as well, nothing too crazed or in depth, mostly simple thoughts and intentions I set forth while taking time to breathe.
Start 'er up: I get my work station and computer going and my to do lists in front of me and I align on what will be completed first, later, tomorrow and so forth. I'm a big fan of crossing off items on lists and completing and updating them actively. It really is the little things. I love spending hours organizing, creating and working to bring client visions to life.
House of mmmm: I absolutely love being able to cook fresh meals often due to working for myself from home. I take pride in creating healthy and flavorful meals and it's such a good feeling to be able to do so.
Work it out: In Florida, especially during summertime, rainstorms in the afternoon are quite common. I loveeeeee hitting the pavement for a good sweat sesh after this glorious occurrence. The smells, feel in the air, and yes, the coolness it helps drop over our sunshiny existence. The timing lines up where it's around the end of my standard workday and it's pretty glorious to step away and enjoy good old exercise.
Tuckered: when work and play are done, a strong hot shower and bed are where it's at. We like to watch news programs in the evening #bcwereover30 now and honestly I like staying informed. We enjoy Tucker and Hannity the most and I also factor in some Blue Bloods and Criminal Minds because I like my world problems in the form of resolution within a 53 minute window.
Things also worth mentioning regarding an ideal day for me:
I am highly optimistic and full of gratefulness for every day I wake up and my friends and family and loved ones wake up happy and healthy. I appreciate all aspects of what a day may lend including client meetups, running errands, grabbing lunch with a friend, I even love grocery shopping. Actually, I really love grocery shopping. This post just outlines what I consider an exceptionally awesome day.
What's your ideal day?
Until we meet again,
