|Fiction is a nice break from |
the harsh realities of nonfiction.
This weekend's theme is PRODUCTIVITY!
I just picked up a fiction book in the middle of the four nonfiction books I am attempting to get through. Such a nice change of pace. I'd like to try to read this novel for at least 5-10 minutes every night before bed.
2. Thank Yous
I've got a few thank yous I want to write, and plenty of blank thank you cards in my stash. I didn't grow up writing thank you cards—my family just didn't do that—so the discovery that it was an expectation of adults has taken some getting used to. But I do enjoy it, even if I don't always remember to do it, and this weekend I'm going to get a few sent out.
3. More Catch Up
This queen of procrastination hasn't even come close to catching up on my to-do list. Time to get cracking!
4. Reset My Sleep Schedule
I don't know why I think I'm twenty-something and can stay up late, but I am not and I can't. I tend to start to get ready for bed at ten. This often involves walking the dogs, doing the dishes, reading, etc. and it is usually nearly midnight before I drift off to sleep. And the next morning? You guessed it—I bound out of bed with a smile on my face and proceed to be a productive joy to be around. Oh, wait. Nope, that's not me.
This weekend, I'm going to make a goal to be in bed at 9. After reading in bed, I should have no problem falling asleep by 10. That way I can get a full 8 hours of sleep and still be up at 6, and start my day out on a good note rather than a sleepy one.
What are you doing in the next seven days that won't cost you an arm and a leg? Any productivity tasks you are planning to cross off your to-do list?
