Anonymous asked: Any tips for getting on a schedule? I can't work due to a health issue & I'm self taught in my career field so I've been stuck in one place for a while. My life has been overcome with procrastination & even laziness at some points. I want to get back onto some kind of routine that I can fill my days up again somehow til I get my life figured out. I've taken to sleeping during most of the day til late afternoon as my 'days' go by faster at night. :\ Any ideas?
Make a literal schedule with small and big goals. My dry erase calender has saved my life for everything from working out, to college projects, to life goals. Get one or an organizer and fill it up. Fix your sleep schedule - in bed by 11 and up by 8am - and then once you’re up, do something. Make a big breakfast and go for a walk. When you get back, do whatever you need to for your career field, whether that means working on something, or looking for a job. Then lunch, then grocery shopping, then more work, whatever it is. Even people who work or do school from home need to treat it like a job. Even if you write, you have to treat it like a job. John Green gets up and writes from 8am till noon, then works on vlogbrothers projects in the afternoon. Just because you aren’t in an office or classroom doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be filling your day with learning or work.
