• 5 *BONUS* Tips for Fighting Fall Frenzy…
1) Sleep Soundly
Don’t cheat yourself out of sleep. Make sure you’re getting your optimal hours. This is a simple step that goes a long way towards keeping you thinking straight, while maintaining patience and peace amidst an increase in busyness.
2) Unplug the TV
TV is more of a distraction than an asset in times of busyness. Your time will magically multiply if you leave the boob tube off. That doesn’t mean you can’t record (or Tivo) your favorites to watch at another time. Whatever you do, don’t sit down with the remote and surf. That’s one of the biggest time stealers out there.
3) Avoid Big Projects
As you transition into a new time of year, allow yourself to make the actual transition a project. This is not the ideal time to paint a room, start a renovation project, or clean out the closets. Set yourself up for success by increasing your awareness on setting up and maintaining a healthy daily routine.
4) Take a Sick of It Day
Sometimes the best cure for a frantic pace is to stop altogether for a day. Sleep in, go out for lunch, rent a movie, read… whatever fills you up. You can even send yourself flowers, if that’s a pick-me-up for you.
5) Create Calm
In the evenings right before bed, spend some quiet time reflecting on the day and thinking about the next day. Light a candle. Have a treat. Listen to your favorite playlist. Create a calm haven that you can look forward to at the end of a busy day.
