Creating Daily Habits

Watch on YouTube


I have been highly motivated in 2017.  I have many goals I want to accomplish.  I realised I needed a daily routine in order to get everything done.

I started off setting alarms for everything in my to-do list.  Ranging from:

  • 6am – Wake Up
  • 6.30am – Pack Work Out Gear
  • 7am – Pack Lunch
  • 7.30am – Journal
  • 6pm – Work Out
  • 7pm – Write
  • 9pm – Read
  • 9.30pm – Ready for Bed
  • 3pm (Sunday Only) – Meal Prep

I had these alarms going off everyday for a month.  As time went on, I started doing these tasks before the alarm prompted me.  They had become habits!

As I showed in a previous blog, I started a habit tracker.  This is good for at the end of the month to see if you actually stuck to your routine or not.  Personally, I could see I fell off the wagon on weekends.

I tracked:

  • Writing
  • Twitter
  • Reading
  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Laundry
  • Exercise
  • Water Intake
  • Coffee Intake

I plan ahead using my happiness planner.  If you have been following along – you’ve already seen this plug!  I use colour coordination so at a glance I can see my to-do list for:

  • Writing
  • Friends & Family
  • Exercise & Self-Care
  • The Day Job

I now have an air-tight schedule/routine and I am accomplishing my tasks on a daily, weekly, monthly basis.
