So, I actually did some studying today. And I also did my laundry and some yoga. Just wanted to tell you.
I deserve to cry a little now.
Joined the zoom lecture meeting early and now I’m awkwardly watching the professor shred papers
Take Control of Your Time
After a three week vacation, and returning to the office in the midst of a “crisis” my schedule has been all off whack. I have definitely been avoiding doing anything, instead of doing something. Over the weekend, I have been up all night, sleeping until the afternoon and allowing my day to get away from me.
A change needs to happen. There is no day like the present, so I’m going to use what I got to get back on track.
I have never been big on using a planner, even though I buy one every year. However, it’s time for a change. I’m using what I got. If you have a daily planner, thats a great tool. If you don’t you have a phone, email, and even your tv can help create a routine to help you capitalize on your day. Check below for some tips, to help take control of your time.
Tips for Creating a Routine
1. Make a list of all the things you need to do daily or monthly
2. Be detailed in your routine, allocate enough time to each task
3. Have a set end time to take a break and move on to your next task
4. Refer back to your daily list throughout the day, checking things off the list can create a since of accomplishments
5. Make your routine and to-do list enjoyable
6. Try it out and change it up if you need to
How to Use Your Phone, Email, TV to Create a Routine
1. Use your calendar and make sure you add an alert (phone and email)
2. Use the Reminder App (already on IPhones) it allows you to schedule and set alerts
3. Download apps to support staying on track such as: Productive Habit Tracker, Habitshare, and Done to name a few
4. Schedule a timer on your tv to automatically turn on and off in order to aid in productivity
5. Use apps like YouTube/Spotify/Apple Music on your phone or tv to play white noise or music to help you be productive in the background
Like with anything it will take time to create a routine that works, be patient and give yourself grace as you take control of your time.
Share your tools and tips for an effective routine!

It’s hard having a mental illness when you’re high functioning, It’s hard having mental illness ANYWAY but when you’re high functioning it’s like people believe you even less. Just because you work, leave the house and make money doesn’t mean you aren’t suffering.
Today i had a pretty relaxed morning and then i went for a walk after my dinner. I sat down to complete my work after the walk, i’m working on my major project collecting the methodology and literature survey. Hopefully i will be ready for the presentation on time.
End of day 4 🌸

Mind is a weird place to be in, if you don’t have anything productive to do. Because i am responsible for what i do, not what you think.

I’m finally done with writing the question and answers of two chapters of English. I have been procrastinating it since last week but had a sudden boost of motivation today. Thank goodness I finished it before my motivation bar went down. I hope ya’ll are having a productive day too because for me it’s really rare.
planners never really worked well for me because I would forget to fill them out and always felt constricted by the formatting. I’m also a big doodler and don’t like having something so formal. However, I’ve always been intimidated by the neatness and dedication of bullet journaling (and applaud anyone who partakes in that hobby). Recently I got a beautiful little sketchbook from my friend for christmas and have been experimenting with it since I lost my planner. I think I’ve really started to find a system that works.
having no system.
Essentially I just use different colors for each main idea (schedule, homework, to do lists) so that I can tell them apart and write it wherever and however I want to on the page. It’s very freeing and I am willing to sacrifice ‘neatness’ for productivity.
It was a not so productive day today. But nevertheless did get some of the work done and hopefully will finish it tomorrow.
List of things to get done tomorrow
Hey guys! Sorry if the drawings on the pic look weird… Idk y it’s happening but I’ll try to fix it tomorrow. So, for the update, I spent most of my time attending meetings/other extracurricular stuff. Then, I also spent a lot of time doing my Math homework. After hours I’m still not done!! Uggghhhh…. (;´Д`) Anyhow, I was able to work on some tasks but I just wasn’t as productive as before. Maybe I should try drinking a Frappuccino tomorrow???
AND YAYYY I FINALLY REACHED THE 20TH DAY OF PRODUCTIVITY!!!! ╰(✧∇✧╰)
