Scheduling Free Time

Schedules are important, whether it’s a long weekend, summer vacation, or even a global pandemic–organization keeps the world running. Here are three super easy steps to keeping a ~tiny~ bit of structure in your life!

  • Don’t sleep all day! Maybe take a little advantage of it, sleep until 9:30 instead of 7:30, but keep it reasonable. I know you want to sleep in, but I promise you it will benefit you and your family in the long run to keep a little bit of consistency in your days. 

  • Keep taking regular showers! This seems so trivial and unnecessary to say but everyone has those days where you shower on Monday and then all of a sudden it’s Thursday and you still haven’t changed out of your pajamas. Don’t let that be you! Normalcy is key! 

  • Plan your meals. Eat breakfast, eat lunch, and eat dinner. If you like to snack, pre-portion snacks and have one between breakfast and lunch and one between lunch and dinner. Even plan dessert if you’d like, as long as you aren’t eating Ben & Jerry’s straight from the tub and watching Hulu, I count that as being mindful. Don’t snack all day and mindlessly eat while binging Netflix. Keep yourself accountable.
