Last year, I learned a lot of things about myself – good and bad. However, I appreciated each lesson and plan to use them to better myself this year. Basically, your girl is ready to flourish and I’m reclaiming my time in 2020.
Keep reading to see three ways that I’m reclaiming my time this year.
Reclaiming My Time in 2020 – Sticking To The Schedule
Last year, I finally figured out the ideal way to schedule a hectic life. For me, writing down everything has been the key for me to keep things in order. Occasionally, I might add a date here or there in my Google calendar, but I mainly write them down in my planner. Yes, I was able to get my Create & Cultivate planner that I mentioned in my January Lust-Have List. I had to visit 4 different Target and finally found one 30 minutes away, but I got it. However, it was totally worth the wait and drive – it helps me keep everything in order and motivates me. It’s so good and I can’t see myself not using this planner all year. Actually, it’s the reason I wrote this post. 😛
Reclaiming My Time in 2020 – No Means No
For most of my life, I’ve been a “people pleaser”, which I now cringe about. However, always saying “yes” caused me to stress and spread to thin. It was the worst feeling, because I was still having to deal with my own things. So, I’m definitely making “No” a complete sentence. I’m not heartless – if I can help, I will. However, I can’t bend over backward anymore. I’m sure some people will not be happy about it, but they will understand if they truly love me/you. #TrustMe
Reclaiming My Time in 2020 – Dedicated Self-Care Moments
I love any moment that I can find time to squeeze in a moment to treat myself. Still, I didn’t have that many opportunities last year to have some self-care moments. This year, tho?! Oh. I’m going in! I’m going to create a standing nail appointment to refresh my gel manicure every 4-weeks. Also, I plan to get back to my 6-8 weeks hair appointments and I would like to add monthly facials, too. I can’t wait and I don’t plan to look back.
