5 Ways to Get Back to a BETTER Routine
We aren't even close to the new year and here I am already talking about getting back to routine. School has just started and things kind of feel normal again except that I need to get back into my own routine so that I am more productive. There are certain things that I usually do everyday except in the summer I do these things sporadically. We hope that you enjoy this 5 Ways to Get Back to a BETTER Routine post.
For instance, I make a water bottle every single day at home and refill that bottle a lot. I use the same types of water bottles every day and all I drink is water. I also attend a yoga class twice a week and I realized a few weeks ago that I was getting a little bored. While I need to get back to my regular routine of exercising every day, I realize that I could make my routine a little more exciting or at least give it a little variety.
5 Ways to Get Back to a BETTER Routine
Here a few things that I started doing to change things up a little and to get back to an even better routine. This routine works well for me and I am finding that I am even more motivated.
1. Take that water and make it flavored.
We all know that we should be drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day but there is no rule that says you cannot add a little flavor to it. Cut up fresh fruits like lemons, strawberries oranges or apples and add them to your water for flavor. Add some cucumber for a refreshing twist. Try this Water Recipe.
2.Become a morning person.
Did you know that it takes 7 days to start a new habit? For the past year, I have been slowly trying to transition to a morning person and it's taken quite a while for me to get used to this habit. I used to stay up late every single night to work late into the night/early morning. I loved the quiet of the house but I did not love that I couldn't wake up easily before 10am. I would never get a great night's sleep because I never slept for that long. I started by going to bed an hour earlier each night for one month. The next month I went to bed another hour earlier. I kept repeating this until I was going to bed at a more reasonable time and now it's hard for me to sleep past 7am.
Already an early riser? Consider getting up 30 minutes earlier and spending that time on something you love or something just for you. I read a book.
3. Ramp up that exercise and/or find something new.
Love yoga? I know that I do and this year I looked for some alternate ways to do the exercise that I love the most. I have taken yoga on a beach and on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Next week I am trying Stand Up paddleboard Yoga for the first time and I have an aerial silks yoga class scheduled for the week after. Looking for some new and exciting ways to try yoga means that I get to do something I love in a completely different way.
4. Get dressed immediately in the morning after waking.
This is something that I started doing a few years ago. Working from home makes it pretty easy to get stuck in that rut of not getting dressed and sometimes not even wearing shoes for days or leaving the house. Every morning, as soon as I wake up, I take a shower, get dressed and get ready for my day. Even on the weekends. I have found that I am so much more productive and I tend to get a lot more done each day. This is one of the best things that I have done for myself.
5. Snack mindfully and switch it up with goodnessKNOWS snack squares.
