This weeks routine. Feels good!

I haven't been blogging everyday, but I have been journaling each morning and evening. I have a bit of a routine.

Wake up about 6am (I still haven't been able to wake up without hitting snooze!) turn on bedside light. Stretch. Journal. Journal about night and my sleep. Journal about plans for the day. Spend some time sitting quietly. Meditating if I can.

About 6:30, get out of bed, feed pets. Wash up. (Shower, wash face, brush teeth, whatever). Put on make up, style hair, get dressed.

This puts us right around 7:30. Grab lunch and head out. I'm usually in my car by 7:40, which makes the commute to work so much more leisurely. I don't feel rushed or stressed.

My after work routine:
Grocery shopping (if it's a cooking day) and drive home
Feed pets, get out of work clothes, and cook dinner (or heat up left overs)
Eat, yum yum yum, with Kevin. Maybe while watching a show.
Open time: play or clean or read or whatever until 9:00-9:30.

Around 9:00 - 9:30, I usually head upstairs. I brush and floss my teeth and wash my face. I crawl into bed and Journal about my day, if it was productive, if I accomplished what I set out to accomplish. Then I read or do puzzles until I'm sleepy.

This is the routine I've been sticking to all week. It's been great to have a dedicated schedule! I know what I'm going to be doing. I don't stay up all night playing video games or watching TV because that's not in the schedule.

It feels really good to have a dedicated schedule. I actually feel like I have more time. Although, that's probably also because I've been watching less TV since I started this. I promised K-Swiss that I would watch Supernatural and play AoE with him this weekend, though. We both have to clean for at least one hour, and that's it. Then fun time. That's what weekends are for, right? :)
