Steps To Take:
Pay Attention To The Things You Have Within Your Control
See what you do have control over, and form your routine around that. Have a base structure to follow throughout the week. You should manage your own behaviour, because it will help you feel more in control over your day and what you do with it! This helps ensure you finish your tasks for the day.
Create A Routine That Benefits You In All Ways
When building your routine, you should create one that helps you, not one that drags you behind. That means including elements that will help you be healthy both physically and emotionally. Include time for exercise, enough time to cook food at home and some time to relax away from work.
Set Realistic Goals
Set realistic goals when making your routine! That way you will actually be able to accomplish all of your tasks while not being too overwhelmed. Nobody likes to be left with an uncomplete to-do list!
See What Works Out For You
You will not find your perfect routine in the first try! It takes practice and time to figure out what works out best for you! So don’t give up easily. Shift around the timings and the tasks according to how you feel! The purpose of a routine is to make you feel calm and stable, not stressed and anxious to complete all tasks!
