Good Sunday Morning, glow-getters!
Have you ever had a busy week jammed with activity and still felt like you didn't accomplish much?
This is why I like to write down "savors" in my Daily Action Planner. When I go back to read little successes and gratitudes, I remember the small victories that make a difference.
Want to know which success I celebrate today? I finally got my daughter's shampoo after a week of being out. I know it's a bottom-of-the-barrel success to bring up, but after a week of forgetting, it got done. 💪
In previous weeks, I shared our easy 5-step system to change your life. Here's Step 0 (Brain Detox), Step 1 (Define Priorities), and Step 2 (Savor Life).
STEP #3: STRUCTURE YOUR DAY.
You can use this "Structure Your Day" section any way you want: to outline a schedule, do a brain dump, or write notes.
Here's how I use the "Structure Your Day" section:
- Input daily appointments so I can see my week-at-a-glance.
- Bake projects into the schedule to give space to my priorities.
CREATE THEME DAYS TO BUNDLE TASKS
I have themed days to create a weekly rhythm for recurring projects or tasks, which helps organize my "gorgeous chaos."
Monday: "Money Mondays" for all things finance (payroll, transfers, bills, etc.)
Tuesday: Project day, in-person meetings
Wednesday: Spa Principal meetings day
Thursday: Mama/Daughter afternoons
Friday: "Fun Friday" for content planning with the team
What I love about themed days is that it puts a stop to putting out fires and being pulled in a million directions.
For example, if something comes up during the week that has to do with my spas, rather than dealing with it on the spot, I simply write it down in my Daily Action Planner to handle the bundle of spa tasks on Wednesdays, the spa meeting day.
Dedicating time to bundled tasks brings a sense of rhythm and calm to your week.
Do you have themed days? Try creating some themes this week and play with it. It takes time to become a weekly rhythm, but in 90 days, you'll be glad you started. 😊
Here's to structuring, bundling + enjoying the process,
