In the May 2011 edition of the Real Simple Magazine the editor's notes introduces the idea that there is a formula that each of us needs to follow in order to stay energized all day. I love this approach to time management. By focusing on what will keep you motivated and energized you will continue to get closer and closer to your goal of freedom.
8 hours of sleep
+ a strong cup of good coffee while reading my daily meditation
+an hour of early morning yoga
+light breakfast followed by a healthy mid-morning snack
+a trip to work with no distractions
+a good laugh
+lunch with a friend
+no boring meetings
+a glass of wine when I get home in the evening
+a planned out dinner with little prepwork
+a nice walk with my dogs and husband in the evening
+a bubble bath or ½ hour of reading with a cup of tea before bed
Here is my formula, I guess it is not too much different than the editor's list. What is on your list?
