Don’t just use your calendar for work appointments, children’s sports, and doctor’s appointments. On Friday afternoons, I try to take 15 minutes to look at the week ahead and schedule things in my life that are important. Try scheduling things such as:
- Workouts: Research shows if you have them written down at the calendar, you are more likely to workout at that time.
- Lunch with a friend
- “Date at home” dinner with your husband
- Some one-on-one time with your child such as going to the library, a park or playing a board game.
