I am not one for rigid routines. So it may surprise you that I still talk to people about how to organize their days.
There is an incredible sense of health and clarity that comes out of working through
your day with a sense of meaning. When I struggled heavily through burnout and the anxiety surrounding it, one of the first things my doctor prescribed was a ‘skeleton’. A basic rhythm of things necessary for my mind and body to work well together, on which other items could grow as they should. Without the ‘skeleton’, the body falls apart and awaits death. Sounds harsh, but it is the reality. Eating, sleeping, moving, thinking, dreaming, working… all elements of the skeleton that need to be holding together in an orderly manner for life to thrive.
I hold to my skeleton true to my personality, with a measure of fluidity. But I know when I stress, I begin to flop around and loose track of time. That is a little dramatic, but you probably know the feeling.
This is part of where my book and method came to life: http://www.7431book.com
A method, and a system that can be adapted to the way you do life, no matter what that may entail. 7 days in a week, 4 weeks in a month, 3 months in a term, and 1 year of vision. It is a form of skeleton beyond the moment and helps me incredibly for seeing with clarity through the year, which aleviates stress in the moment, and creates a base for me to work with as I look to the future.
So how do you schedule your day?
