Keeping a Schedule – Covid-19

Good Morning! These are definitely interesting times. I am currently on Day 6 of Self-Isolation, as much of the world is, and living alone, keeping my sanity through all this is of key importance to me. What has worked for me is having a daily schedule.ย  So far, I am fortunate enough to be able to work from home which does keep me busy 5 days of the week.ย  However, the weekends I wanted to remain somewhat productive. I’ve included my schedule below for my weekends.ย  This has been pretty good so far and my spirits are up, at least thus far. ๐Ÿ™‚

Saturdaysย 

9:00am – wake up and work out (I never get to sleep in until 9am so I’ve decided to take advantage of this! – no getting out of bed until 9am!)

9:30am – make breakfast and get ready for the day (this has been important to me – keeping some form of routine)

10:00am – Blog

11:00am – morning healthy snack – usually fruit (trying to maintain good eating habits)

11:15am – Go out only for needed groceries/supplies. (I also check with my parents to see if they need anything)

12:15pm – Lunch

12:45pm – play some games to stimulate my brain on IPAD/continue learning language (I am currently learning Italian on the app DuoLingo).

1:45pm – Free time to do anything that needs to be done or just to sit and do nothing/facetime family and friends

2:30pm – pm snack

2:45pm – walk outside ( I think its important to continue to get fresh air, just stay away from people lol)

3:15pm – clean/organize

5:00pm – Supper

6:00pm – Online Course – I’ve decided I’d like to take advantage of free time (something I don’t have much of in my “regular” life and learn something new. check out www.Alison.comย  for many free courses in all areas!

7:30pm – watch some tv

9:00pm – Yoga

9:30pm – Read

10:00pm – Bedtime

My Sundays are similar but I swap out a few things, do some teaching prep (I teach dance) & working on something creative etc. Hopefully this helps or gives those who live alone some ideas on how to fill their days so not to get bored and/or lonely. ๐Ÿ™‚ Stay safe everyone and keep healthy!

National Blood Donor Month!

January is National Blood Donor Month. This is something that I truly believe every one should do, or at least try to do, once in their lifetime and hopefully, if successful, many more times afterwards. It truly is the easiest thing to do and is so needed. So many patients across the Country require this life saving donation. I highly recommend you visit your local blood donation clinic and give it a try, for about 30-60 minutes of your time you could be saving a life!

In Canada, you can visit www.blood.ca for more information. If you are unable to physically donate, you could consider donating financially or with your time as a volunteer. As I am unable to donate blood in January I decided to donate a small amount of $10.00. I also plan to book my next blood donation appointment for February 4th!

Happy to say that on the 4th it will be my 11th donation! Have you ever donated blood? Ever thought about it? Let me know in the comments below โค๏ธ

53 Weeks Of Change : Week 1

Hello everyone!

First of all I’d like to apologize for the lack of posting – it’s been incredibly busy and I have totally lacked any kind of motivation. However, after having a break over the holidays and having some much needed downtime, this last point leads me to my goals for 2019. I’m attempting to start a New Years resolution or more aptly a challenge for 2019. My hope is to make small (<- key word) changes or to begin forming some “new” habits. My end result is to hopefully end 2019 in an overall healthier spot and to create small habits so I can continue for years to come ๐Ÿ˜. I’m also doing this as I go, so here we go.
