How lots of you may have a selected order of merchandise you utilize once you take a bathe?

Here’s mine:

  1. Shampoo
  2. Conditioner
  3. Body cleaning soap
  4. Face wash
  5. Shave

I bathe so as of most necessary to least necessary in case there may be an emergency mid bathe. (You by no means know!) Washing my hair is high precedence as a result of the suds drip over my physique so if I didn’t get to physique cleaning soap on account of an emergency I might no less than be a tiny bit cleaner. In all my years I can’t keep in mind ever having to actually finish a bathe mid-way by way of, however there have been occasions after I’ve needed to rush or the new water runs out, and it’s simpler to skip shaving than it’s shampoo!

Prioritize Your Day

Whether you’re employed at a desk all day, chipping away at a job record, or are house together with your youngsters maintaining the family operating, do your most necessary duties first. The sense of accomplishment of getting the Most Important Task accomplished propels me by way of the day. Maybe that job is hauling the youngsters to the grocery retailer or perhaps that job is writing 5 pages of a report. Whatever its nature, sort out it when your mind is recent and you might be nonetheless energized out of your morning espresso. (Unless you’re a night time owl and work finest after 10pm. You odd hen, you!) I are inclined to get drowsy between Three-5 within the afternoon so I save my most enjoyable duties for that point and do those I’m wanting ahead to the least after I’m recent.


I’ve been utilizing an app referred to as TeuxDeux for years to arrange my duties. I assign duties to every day after which prioritize them from most necessary to least necessary. If any are left on the finish of the day, the seem on the following day’s record. I even have future planning lists on the backside for various tasks I’m engaged on: weblog publish concepts, website positioning audit duties, Beautycounter. I’ve these ranked by precedence too, and I can drag and drop duties from the longer term lists to the day of as wanted. (Note I screenshoted this on 9/13 – I additionally prefer to work forward after I can!)

Mixing Workouts In

Outside of “work tasks” I’ve been experimenting with doing a exercise first vs. center vs. very last thing in my day. Some days my exercise is a better precedence than others, and I’ve been attempting to let it movement naturally as an alternative of planning it out, though admittedly meaning some days it will get bumped to tomorrow. I get pleasure from my exercise a bit extra if I’ve achieved one thing first. It looks like extra of a deal with or a break than if I putz round after which go for a run or to a category. I at all times neglect that I can take each youngsters to Kids Zone within the late afternoon, so that’s really an excellent time. The “best time” for me to train appears to vary every day!
