My week was filled with the usual activities. Going into my nine to five job and working on the side hustle that is my blog. One thing stood out though, it was filled with loads of sunshine. There’s just something about great weather that sets a pleasant mood. It’s apparent in the way people interact with you and just seem generally happier than usual which is always a good thing. The clocks moved forward and we lost an hour. We’re back to longer days and shorter nights. Feeling inspired by the sunshine and dreaming of all the shoots I could get out of it, I made a little change to my routine by starting my day an hour earlier than I would normally do and it’s working out well so far.
I shot an ad Campaign for Natural World (if you’re interested in finding out how to get sponsored content I’d recommend getting a copy of my eBook where I go into details). I also shot a creative two minutes video all about spring which you can watch here.
I’ve been thinking lately that it’s time to get into a healthy routine. One that balances work, family and well being. The truth is that I’ve never been a great planner. I’ve always been a “seize the moment” type of girl who sometimes tends to procrastinate. I know being the way I am actually brings out my creative side which I love for the most part. I tend to do a lot things in my head rather than put pen to paper. Right now it’s become more apparent that in order to take my content to where it needs to be, I need to be a lot more organised. The funny thing is that I’m good at writing down my goals for the year but not my daily tasks which are in essence daily goals that would get me closer to my yearly goals. I have so many empty notebooks waiting to be filled with daily tasks and it’s high time I get going. The plan is to go to bed early, wake up early, meditate, deal with emails, work, exercise, eat healthy, spend time with family and friends etc. And hopefully I should have a progress report on how I’m getting on come next week’s post.
