People have their ways of staying organized, what works best for me is using a highschool planner. It sounds weird. But it works. For the first time in a long time due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my planner is full of absolutely nothing. As of today, I am going to write down daily goals to find accomplishments to maintain the right balance of mental and physical health. People say writing down goals is the first step in achieving them, and not many people actually do it. I realized this morning that I need to continue to do it to keep that habit.
Usually, my highschool planner is filled with appointments, tasks, and advertising portfolio work. For two years, I’ve worked on my advertising portfolio to obtain a job in advertising, putting my blogging on hiatus. Right now, I am placing portfolio work on hold as I’m trying to work with art directors to polish it finally. Now, I can go back to doing what I love the most, which is journaling.
Now, my goals for the days to come will look something like this:
- Write 300 – 500 words.
- Leisurely activities.
- Work out.
- Walk Cooper.
- Cook and clean.
Writing down my goals keeps me sane, and it is a good habit to have during the times of imprisoned isolation. You see, we have the freedom to do what we want while we are trapped in our homes. It is quite the catch 22 and is quite similar to how prisoners feel in certain aspects.
When Franco was king of Spain, everyone was afraid, and when he died in 1975, everyone went absolutely berzerk.
We have the opportunity to explore new avenues, re-evaluate our life goals and ambitions, and to do new things such as playing chess. I can finally fix that lighting fixture and paint a hockey goalie mask.
I’m trying to figure out how to find a balance of interests with my fiance, how to stay busy, how to keep good habits and to keep in contact with close friends and relatives.
My late grandfather baked bread until his late 70 because it gave him a purpose. Maybe I’ll finish one of my three books, whatever it is, we all need to find some bread to bake right now to keep us moving forward.
