Add the important stuff - Deepstash

Add the important stuff

  • Put in your schedule activities that match your priorities. Make sure they are feasible. For example, if you feel you still don’t have enough time to go to the gym for an hour, then don’t put that in your schedule.
  • Start by doing something that is in the vicinity of where you are but in the direction of where you want to go. For example, if 20-30 minutes of daily exercise is your plan for a better health, but you are currently at point zero, then start with 5 minutes.

  • Some “urgent” activities will just need to go. Maybe you can wait until later after all to check your picture on Facebook.
  • Some “urgent” activities will need to be delegated. Your assistant, if you have one, could actually pay that bill.
  • Some others will be better organized. You could actually make a batch of lunches every Sunday and Wednesday.

Run a test week

Try your new life for one week to see in practice what works for you, and then make appropriate changes.

It might take you a couple of weeks to clear the clutter from your life, testing what activities should go, stay, be delegated, or better organized.

Exercising At Home

Our lifestyles have since then changed and in order to adjust to our environment, there are things that we cannot do at the moment like go to the gym.

The good news is that you don't need to go to the gym in order to exercise at home.

Balance is not the same as rest

It’s not about rest and finally getting that much-needed break, though it does include these aspects.

Balance is about distributing demands so we can stay on track. And sometimes that takes a lot of work.
