Do you ever feel spread too thin? To be honest, I have been feeling this way for quite sometime and it’s time I get organized now!
I MUST GET ORGANIZED NOW
I use to be very organized but what happened? I’m now snoozing the clock a million times in the morning. I’m rushing to get out of the house to get to work on time. I’m always rushing from point A to point B. My cell phone is always in my hand trying to respond to this and that. I’m making calls while driving down the road, checking emails at the traffic light and responding to social media on bathroom breaks while at work.
THIS MUST STOP!
Therefore, over the next 30 days, I am challenging myself to create a life regimen that forces me to get organized now!
BE EFFICIENT WITH MY TIME
I recently changed jobs and I am not allowed to have my cell phone at my desk. Since starting this job, I’ve found it very challenging to get my wish list items done before bedtime. I’m literally hustling from the time I walk in the door up until I lay my head on the pillow. I need to be efficient with my time and limit activities that distract from my productivity. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter surfing are huge distractions for me.
I have an extra vertebrae at the base of my back that partially developed when I was a kid. As I was growing up, it never presented a problem. Heck, I didn’t even know I had that issue. Now that I’m older it has caused a lot of issues. The best way I know to describe the discomfort – it’s that deep soreness you feel when you’ve done major yard work. Yeah, that!
Some days I can barely move and stand upright. I have two options as per the Orthopedic Dr. – exercise and build up my core and back muscles or have surgery. Surgery is not an option so exercise it is.
To be honest, I love lifting weights. However, I keep such a tight schedule from sun up to sun down that time is very limited for exercise. When my day is running long, exercise seems to be the first thing I cut from my daily routine! When I do have free time, I’m usually rushing home to write a blog post.
I’m disciplining myself to focus more on me before making time for other things. Over the past week, I’ve really focused my attention on working out because it’s a must for me to feel better.
GET MORE REST
I am averaging about 3 or 4 hours of sleep per night. I have never been the one to sleep for 8 hours but I certainly need more than 4 hours of sleep. I work full-time so between working, blogging, being a wife, sister, daughter and friend, time is limited. My immediate goal is to increase my sleep hours to at least 6 hours per night. Therefore, I will set the alarm on my cell phone as a reminder to stop what I’m doing and get to bed.
GET ORGANIZED NOW 30 DAY CHALLENGE
Because I am queen of procrastination,I’m giving myself 30 days to get organized now, otherwise this won’t happen! It’s a must. After I accomplish this, my next effort at organization will be my house. It too needs work.
