Vacations, they mess with your routine and have you doing things a bit differently – all for the best. After a few days I’ve come back refreshed and looking to turn my regular schedule around. To prevent the inevitable “Groundhog’s Day” feeling, I’m doing a few small things to unstuck my rut.
1. Rearranging my schedule. From grabbing coffee later in the morning to making sure I make time for a walk of some type outside. I am finding ways to break up my day and shuffle tasks around.
2. Doing something for myself. Not to sound selfish, but I typically rush home from work only to fall into my regular evening routine of dinner and house chores. I’m making sure I add some mid-week errands in, which will also help free up the weekends. Lookout Target!
3. You snooze you lose. I am a morning workout gal, no doubt, but if I could actually get out of bed within the first 10 minutes of my alarm I’d be making up some serious time.
4. Making a daily to-do list. I love me some lists and putting a few must to-dos on a list will help me refocus during the day. If I know I have somewhere to be at a certain time I rush to make sure I get it all done. Adding a sense of urgency to things.
These few tips should help me inch out of the rut of routine.
What do you all do to make daily tasks less mundane?
