 Your Step by Step Guide to Creating a Routine for Success

wake up early

  • Get up Early

I don’t know about anyone else, but ever since this #lockdown my sleep cycle has been all over the place! I don’t fall asleep until 1 am and I wake up at 1 pm. Sad right?

The worst part, I’m actually working from home and was usually an early riser. This week we are shaking things up and we will not ignore the alarm when it goes off.  We will turn off all distractions at a set time per night, shower and create a nighttime routine that involves going to bed early so we can wake up early.

Your Task: Set your alarm clock for the entire week (including weekends) and wake-up when it goes off. Do not snooze

make your bed, morning routine

  • Make your Bed

Listen, as a Jamaican, this is something that has been ingrained in me since I was a child so making my bed is not a new concept. There are, however, millions of people who don’t make their bed since they believe they will get in it a few hours later.

If you want to be more productive, make your bed and if you have kids who are of age, tell them to make their beds too.

It is believed that the world’s most successful people start their day by making their beds as it gives them clarity.

how to give yourself an at home facial

  • Do an at-home Facial

This is for the males too, so not to worry! Reach for that beauty product you bought a long time ago that you never got around to use. It could be a face mask, a scrub or even a plant that grows naturally in your yard like Aloe Vera.. my Jamaicans know this as “Tuna” or “Sinkle Bible” .

This has anti-inflammatory properties and can be used to reduce the size of pimples and smooth the face. Now is the perfect time to pay attention to your skin so you don’t look at bad as what is going on in the world.

Other things to add to your routine:

  1. Make a list of your daily tasks. The first step is to look into what you need to do every day. …
  2. Stay active during the day. At this time, your energy levels have dissipated. …
  3. Have an evening ritual. …
  4. Test-drive your new routine.

You are now on your way to Creating a Routine for Success!
