Sit down with myself with pen and paper in a quiet location. Sometimes before going to bed to ready for the next day/week.
Write the PERSONAL activities I wish to enjoy (by myself, with family, friends, etc)
Plan each day starting with my morning good habits and time block the activities you listed for NOW
Consider a business or household taks to complete first then REWARD myself with time for to relax and regroup
I take time to feel good about my progress and TAKE ACTION on the next important task to complete.
