Today was the first day with my new mindset, new routine checklist and my new way to structure/reflect on my day.
Today’s routine checklist:
Wake up early: 5:45 AM Meditation20 minutes. Today’s meditation wasn’t as peaceful as yesterdays/day before. But I was able to focus and control my thoughts for the most part 🙂 Thinkright.me“I am in charge of my attitude, and hence in-charge of my life” : Watch your attitude. Your attitude is your biggest asset. A positive attitude gives you the power to overcome your circumstances. A positive attitude will lead to positive outcomes. Gurbaninitnem, rehras sahib GratitudeToday I am the most grateful for being able to have an early start to my day. Today’s Food Intake
- Lemon water
- fresh juice
- greek yogurt with some maple syrup walnuts and berries
- leftover pizza
- 6 pieces of Portfolio Home Trends chocolates (these are too tempting but my goal for tomorrow is to avoid having these and making myself healthy chocolate oat balls instead)
- mango shake
Organizationorganized all the notes on my notes app, organized my to do’s for work (halfway done) Walkwalked Mayhem twice today, total about 30 minutes Yogare-started the 3 week yoga retreat. Completed week 1, day 1 today. I will definitely have to repeat this again next week as I have lost a lot of my strength (it’s been a while) and couldn’t properly keep up with the routine for the entire time today ExerciseTodays exercise was a bike ride for 30 minutes WorkI clocked in once I reached my desk and clocked out once I sat in my car to leave work. It was a full 8 hours today all in the office Self-care & relaxationI feel like I took good care of myself today and although I was very productive, I am also feeling very relaxed. I didn’t have to cook since lunch was already prepared and I haven’t cooked dinner yet – might just eat something quick and easy and call it a day 🙂 FamilyI dropped by to my moms house after work, I went to my cousins place after that and then spent time chatting with my sister while biking Blogworking on this right now Sleepwill probably go to bed by 10:15 PM Positivity & Productivityexcept for a slight annoyance that disturbed my peace of mind slightly, the rest of the day was positive, productive & peaceful for the most part.
So I am feeling very content with today. I’ve found a way that I think can work long-term to find some normalcy, balance and discipline in my life (which I’ve realized time and time again is what I really need for my internal peace and happiness). As I was preparing for this reflection, I came up with the above format to do my reflections while completing my daily checklist. It’s been a win-win in all aspects today!
Thanks for tuning in. I’ll be (hopefully) back again tomorrow! Hoping for the positivity and productivity to last long-term this time.
