July 1, 2022

To plan your day it is crucial to end the previous night right. Sleeping on time allows your body and mind to rest and rejuvenate, assuming you get the required amount of sleep. Plan when you'd like to sleep and keep in mind that building a relaxation regimen or a nighttime ritual can help.

Create a bedtime routine that includes activities like reading a book, singing or listening to soothing music, lullabies or sleep podcasts.

It's vital to acknowledge that the time you go to bed and the time you sleep may differ. This demands going to bed an appropriate time before your desire to sleep.


Planning your day is a management strategy that not only helps you work more efficiently but also removes stress from juggling multiple tasks. Plan your day first thing in the morning to ensure a successful day. This involves scheduling your sleep time and preparing all your meals for the day. Plan your meals preferably a day ahead so you get enough time to gather the materials and other resources. You can also plan for the upcoming week and buy all of your groceries during the weekend, which can help you manage your time.


On a workday, eating proper meals might be a chore. Also, during your work you tend to munch of unhealthy snacks. To avoid unhealthy munching start keeping healthy snacks on hand throughout the day. It can help you avoid a variety of potentially harmful ingredients. Prepare and keep finger meals on hand so you don't have to rely on takeout or packaged processed foods.


Exercise and mobility are crucial for the body's optimal functioning. Increasing strength and power helps prevent a wide range of ailments and health problems. Planning your workouts for the week ahead gives you a checklist to help you stay consistent. Make sure you get plenty of rest the night before your workout because recovery cannot be neglected. Exercising does not have to be a chore; adding variety to your activities, such as walking uphill or joining a fitness club, can make your regular routine more enjoyable.  Remember, “Exercise is not a punishment, it is a celebration”.

Meditation + Breathwork

Regular meditation and breathwork improve physical, mental, and emotional health. It also helps build your attention, self-control, and gain happiness. Meditation should be planned ahead of time similar to any other daily chore. The reason to plan ahead for meditation is that you need utmost silence and peace. Start by setting aside 2-5 minutes each day to sit in a peaceful spot or simply focus on your breathing. Attending a guided meditation session that leads you through mantra meditation, relaxation, or mindfulness-based techniques. Developing this practise benefit us in the long run.

Holidays (Weekends)

Plan the responsibilities and chores for the following week on weekends. Write down everything that has to be done for the week and make sure to set priorities. Keep in mind to include both personal and professional details.

If you're a homemaker, it's advisable to buy fresh fruits and veggies every other day. For other dry groceries, you can keep a month's worth of food stock on hand to avoid buying in slots. Making a to-do list and placing it in accessible places such as the kitchen, living room, or bedroom might help you feel more productive.

The most challenging yet rewarding element of planning is execution. Even an ill-planned strategy performed well can be successful. Enjoying your tasks encourage you to complete them quicker, demanding an incentive to keep you motivated. Rewards can include a variety of activities such as taking a break, eating your favourite food, watching a tv show that you enjoy, or taking a quick pleasant walk, among others. Being open and honest about your efforts and triumphs might motivate you to keep going. It can also make plan modifications easier and identify changes that affect your objectives. The only thing to keep in mind is to never give up. Modify your strategy until you find one that works for you rather than the plan working for you.

Time is valuable because it is the finest element of human existence.
