Remember what it was like to be a kid in school day-to-day?
We didn’t show up to a desk and simply sit for 5-6 hours straight. Our days were broken up.
There were times where we learned stuff and other times where we could play and move. A designated time to nap. Best of all, we had set times to eat!
An added bonus was that our food for the day was already planned out.
A child can’t grow and develop properly without a variety of activities in their lives and some structure around it. So, why is it that once we reach adulthood we completely abandon this concept?
It’s easy to get into a lifestyle where sleep is considered optional. Food intake is ad-hoc and unbalanced. For some, it’s non-existent which is another problem altogether.
Days can go by without any sort of physical movement, even just going for a walk.
Think back to what your childhood days were like, and how you can bring back some of those ideas to your adult self.
Prep your lunch and some snacks. Go for a quick walk during the day. Schedule some gym time.
Pretend you actually have a “bedtime” once again and stick with it - else you will get in trouble!
There will be more time tomorrow to get back to work.
But there is only so much time you have today to something good for yourself.
Your future “adult” you will be grateful.
