What time do I wake up – 6 am
The first thing I do in the morning – Drink 2 glasses of water, and then a glass of water with lemon and the mutha vinegar. Then I head to the gym UltimateBodiesby Carlos where I train with Melody Melton twice weekly at 7 am. She helps to keep my body and mental health in the best shape it can be.
Breakfast – same thing for years, yogurt with oats, blueberries, figs, nuts, and other good stuff with coffee or tea. Why change if I love it.
Best habit – Being positive with people, no one would ever guess I am having a bad day because that is not what I like to present to people. Why spoil their day?
Worst habit – I need to give people a bit more time to relax, I like to be everywhere on time and get everything right.
How Covid changed my routine – I worked from home already, so I just kept doing that. Actually, I became a bit of a recluse, so I realized I had to get out and socialize more, it has been a learning experience just getting out of the house again. My home became a sanctuary, my family and my plants and I loved it.
Productivity tools – Writing, I am using the Artist’s Way as a guide, so I try to write my three pages almost every day. Lists, I write my week out on a large artist’s pad that sits on my desk every Sunday. I plan out the week making notes for each day. Then I try to stick to that list every day. It helps me to clear my head on Sunday and try to start the week fresh. I also have my pocket-sized Franklin Planner, I have been using it for over 20 years and it keeps me grounded. Tech tools, I use Slack and Basecamp for projects and communication. I use Teachable for clients and Microsoft OAS for presentations.
Three words to define this new year – Health. Family. Job
The last thing I do at night – Watch a show on my tablet on Prime first (Danish, French, and English series are my favorites) and then read, that gets me to sleep very quickly. Reading became hard the last few years but I have come back to it and It feels great. I sketch sometimes too, that is a treat.
Bed time – 10:00pm
