Good Morning everyone and welcome to my midweek Wednesday Blog. I hope your all having an amazing week.
Today I'm going to be talking about "Time Blocking and Routine"
We all have busy lives or productive ones depending how you look at it. When your sat there on a Sunday Evening (or whatever day you choose) thinking how am i going to fit in everything I need to this week?
You then think what about the kids or whatever else you have going on as well it can be a very over whelming process.
STOP BREATHE You got this!
Firstly Time Blocking...:
When I first launched my business I was finding it very hard to find time for my and my daughter, was almost like I felt I couldn't stop and breathe for 10mins. My daughter then start playing up a lot more and I didn't know what to do.
A very good friend of mine advised me Routine and Time Blocking will make life a lot better, more productive and less stressful. Oh how right she was!
So I Took my Diary out and started planning my week, blocking in time for everything, school run, food, time with my daughter, specific tasks for the day, shower time, bath time, appointments everything.
Soon my diary looked rather full and organised, using pencil then at the end of the night when the task had been done gone over and ticked in pen. This then became routine and generally the business task end up becoming set of certain days and times.
So an average day for me could look like this...:
7.30am Get up, Dressed, Washed and get Ruby ready
8.40am Take Ruby to school
9am till 11.10am Work - Blogs, Order, Posts,
11:20am Pick up ruby from school
12pm - Lunch time
12.30 till 3pm - Work and Set Ruby tasks (blogs, orders, videos, images: ruby: Practise numbers, writing)
3pm till 7pm - Play with Ruby, Do Dinner, Bath and Ruby into bed
7pm till 10pm - Work - Social Media
10pm till Midnight - My time - read, tv, shower, chill, pamper time
This becomes daily time slots so the same times everyday I follow the layout the tasks may change depending on what orders or coaching etc i have on the day, but the time slots stay the same.
My daughter needs high stimulation to keep her occupied or she is a bit full on and misbehaves. So this time gap between 3pm and 7pm is a must every day.
