It’s past midnight. I’m exhausted, and have so much more to do.

I’ve been working all day, then taking care of my family. After everyone goes to sleep it’s me time, or at least I think it is. Honestly though, it’s the time I try to cram an entires day worth of chores into a few short hours. Then drag myself to bed and stare at the ceiling thinking of ALL the things I haven’t finished yet. Sound familiar? It’s bad time management, horrible daily routine, and I’m extremely guilty of it. I used to think it was because I’m a night owl and have always been that way. Can’t teach an old dog new tricks yada yada yada. However, now that I’m getting older and the my body CRAVES sleep I’m feeling it’s time for a change. Enter the personal time audit. I jotted down what I did every day, and for how long. Was it obnoxious and eye opening? YES and YES. What I found was that I was spending way too much time doing mindless jobs and tasks, that didn’t actually fulfill my goals. I needed to change. I needed a new routine! That was 6 months ago… here I am back to my old habits again. I could rattle off excuses as to why my routine failed (fluctuating childcare, season change, life!) but its my own fault and lack of accountability. When I was consistent it was great, but I lacked a back up plan for when things went wonky. Once things were too off the rails, I couldn’t find a way to bring it back in. I’m ready to get back on track! Want to join me? I’ll be walking my Waste Knot Studio Community group through some exercises to get a daily routine set in place. With help and support from others we can stay more aligned and accountable to our goals. Come join us!
