Make it easy for yourselfMar 15, 2021
What's the one thing you can do today to help you achieve today's goals?
What can you do that will make it easier or more fun?
This question is a great way to start looking after yourself.
I know at 2 pm I will be HANGRY, and it won't be pretty unless I'm prepared. I can work through, up to a point, and then I start falling apart.
To make it easier on myself and to achieve my goal of eating foods that are kind to my body I can simply pack lunch. This is the one thing that will make tomorrow much nicer.
On Sunday I can plan my lunches so that this week is sorted.
This is kindness. I am looking after my future self.
Let's try another example:
I have lessons to prepare and assessments to complete this week. This week was tax preparation time, therefore, my office at home was looking a little .... neglected!
Today I asked myself this same question... What's the one thing that will make this week easier and nicer?
I spent 15 minutes arranging my office - trash taken out, pens away, items cleared away that didn't belong
The space feels more conducive to getting work done. I feel like I have room to think. It's easier to find things and nicer to be here.
Try it out this week.
What's one thing I can do today to look after myself?
How can I make that task easier or nicer?
Recently in Charting Champions we were working with burnout coach Ana Blake. We were learning all the great ways to look after ourselves with kindness.
You can join in, we would love to have you inside Charting Champions.
Learn a new way to work.
Create time for the things you actually want to be spending time doing!
Have a great week!
