5 Things I Bet You Did Not Think To Do While Staying At Home
For those of you who don't know me, I need to proclaim: the use of the "B" word is one of my biggest pet peeves! Isn't it funny that we always say we are too BBBBbbbusy?
Time...how often can we say we have it? Now that some/most of us do have it, we don't know what to do with it! I have some unique ideas to help fill in the void!
1) Write a Nice Review: Maybe this seemed like a chore pre-Coronavirus....but now, this could be such a nice way to brighten someone's day! Let's spread some love, shall we? (PS - I love nice reviews)
2) Take some Continuing Education: This is one of the things on my to-do list. I'm not going to lie to you...this is still considered a chore in my book. But while I have some time to spare, it makes sense to get it done now.
3) Goal Setting, budgeting, and review time: It's April now...we are already into the second quarter of the year. Have you looked into the goals and budgets you set back in December/January for 2020? It's possible you may need to revamp those goals. It is also time to start getting creative on how to meet those goals! Personal, professional, budgetary: it is important to review your goals often and keep at it!
4) Organize (I didn't say clean, but hey..while you are at it): I am the organization queen of my castle. If I don't know where it is - that means it is gone forever! Now is a great time to develop a system, and don't be afraid to throw things away that are not needed. Move stuff around, clean under it while you are at it...I ALWAYS feel good about myself after a good organizational and list making session (especially in my office).
5) Turn Your Internet Off: Okay, Okay...maybe don't turn it off. But put the phone down and free your mind. Do some yard work, go for a walk, sit and enjoy the spring birds chirping. The point is to not be interrupted with the outside world for at least an hour per day. This is a great habit to get into now that you may not have the stress of being constantly on call. And honestly, this 1 hour of internet freedom should be done even when you are back into your normal schedule when the time comes.
I want to give a HUGE thank you to all of the doctors, nurses, grocery store workers, truck drivers, delivery people, mail people - and anyone else I may have missed who are on the front line and are clearly "the B word". You are more than appreciated and I genuinely thank you for your service.
Stay at Home! Stay Safe!
