10 ways to get into routine (or back on your routine)

DSC_0259

It has been very hard for me to get back into my routine.  I have moments when everything feels like it is getting there and then there is a breakdown and I feel completely disconnected again.  Does Hawaii do that to you or is it something else?  When we come back from summer vacation it can be a releif that there is more routine in our lives.  Use this time to re-establish your personal routine to a better you.

To get back into routine there are some simple steps to take:

  1. Be sure to eat the right foods and get back on your schedule of eating. (5-6 meals a day)
  2. Force yourself to go to bed at the same time and get up at that same time.(even on weekends)
  3. Begin your physical regimen as soon as possible.  (begin with physical activity with a partner / teammate)
  4. Add your personal physical activity day by day. (include a stretching routine)
  5. Start a reading routine again.  (be sure to get at least 30 minutes to one hour of reading in everyday)
  6. Stay in touch with your mentors or teammates on a daily basis. (this adds accountability)
  7. Journal your results everyday.  (this is for you to see where you can adjust and make improvements)
  8. Limit & schedule time spent on email, internet activities and television.
  9. Schedule time for doing charity work in your community
  10. Be sure to celebrate your successes by allowing yourself to do something special for yourself.

Daily working on yourself is a part of living your best life, setting a great example for those watching (read our kids), keeping up both our mental and physical health.  If you are feeling tired or worn out all the time – something is missing in your life.  It may be a good routine of great healthy, ‘Living Like a Champion’ activities.   Join with me in the activity of routine and watch what I am doing to live the best life I can.
