New Routines

New year, new routines?  Or am I still trying to find one which works well for me.

Having been on the road much of the end of 2019, waking up to a home which wasn’t mine, I found it hard to be grounded in routine.  What exactly should I be doing and when?  What was the number one thing I should get done today?

With the lack of routine and no looming deadlines, I found it hard to be as productive as I would like.  Or near as productive as I was when I was working full-time.  Which makes no sense to me.

I have cut 2-3 hours of driving from my life.  This is 2-3 hours I figured I could use to exercise, work, do projects which needed to be completed around the house.

But with no deadlines, I found I wasn’t exercising, cooking, finishing projects and my business was not where I would thought it would be by now.

So, back to setting up a routine for me.  Back to getting ready for the morning, even if it means I shower and head back to my home office.  Using my early morning before work creative time to be creative again.  Writing and then editing photos.

I also have discovered the daily routine of interacting and talking to people is something I miss.  I miss coming into an office and saying hi to my coworkers.  I miss catching up with people on their lives and finding out how their kids are doing.

It is time for me to schedule time to be around the people I love.  Or maybe just schedule time to be around people in general.  ?It just isn’t right to spend quite so much time in my own head.  It is kind of dangerous in there.

So, finding routines which will work at home and while I am on the road is what I will be working on over the next few days.  But not early in the morning, that is my time.  And I vow to not spend time working in my pajamas anymore.  Time to get up and ready for my day.
