Balancing a Crazy Life

Life can just get crazy right? The semester is about to start up and I am just anticipating the business and the stress. Since some of my my new years resolutions were to stay organized and stop procrastinating I plan to stay ahead of everything (hopefully). In order to do this and to help Neil out I made a plan. There is still things missing in it since I am not sure my schedule for one of my graduate assistant positions or the 40 hours of volunteering I have to do for one of my classes. This is more for me to know what I am doing or what I need to do to stay on top of simple things like the chores so I don’t get overwhelmed.

Here is the rough outline. There are many more things that could go into it like small group for church or volunteering in the kids program. But I’m trying to keep it simple. So here is what it looks like so far:

I wish I could make it bigger :(. O well! The blue is obviously chores I should do and the Thesis/Hw is hopefully to inspire me to work on it so I can get that thing done! Its terrible to have something like that just hanging over your head all the time.

My daily schedule is a little different. This is my goal:

6:30 am: Wake up and pray

6:50 am: read bible and eat breakfast

7:10 am: Workout (more on this on Wednesday)

8:00 am: blog and/or do chores

9:00 am: start the busy day

I am hoping that by doing this my stress levels will be way down and I will be more productive each day! Tell me some of your tips to stay organized and less stressed! I would love to hear them!

  1. sounds good! I hope you get everything done, especially your thesis so that way you can feel more relaxed knowing it’s done! 🙂 Praying for ya girly! :)Nice blog background btw! I like it! 🙂

  2. Good luck to you in the New Year!

    I find that having routines for things, but not necessarily locking them down to a specific time works better for us. (Obviously some things simply ARE locked in time.) That takes a bit of the pressure off of ME and gives us a little more flexibility. Of course, our days are so full and tight everything pretty much DOES have a time, but we don’t have to feel as restricted about it. And knowing the routines actually speed things up for us too.

    1. Yes I completely agree. If I don’t have a schedule or a list of things to do there is a good chance nothing will get done. My mind is every where most of the time so knowing what I have to do works for me. Being flexible with time is also a good thing! I couldn’t agree more with you! Thanks for the advice/encouragement.
