Back to School? Back to Office? Embrace the new structure!
Hey there! I hope you've had an enjoyable Summer. As it winds down and some of us will be beginning school-runs again, or going back to the office, I wanted to use this newsletter to note the opportunity that this presents to restore some structure and good habits in our lives.
One of the biggest problems for people with work-from-home has been the lack of set times and structures in the day. It just feels like one big, wide open field. Setting down some pillars and fences (appointments, commutes, picking up the kids) provides direction and structure that can be very beneficial.
See the Monthly Top Tip below for more on this...
Also below, check out my latest news and video interview on procrastination with Jennifer Van Uffelen.
It's an experiment for now, but the plan is to have a new guest each month and release their interviews in 3 (or so) useful parts.
First up, coach Jennifer Van Uffelen, speaking about procrastination, with parts 2 and 3 due in the next two weeks.
FREE Productivity consulting for laya Healthcare App users
In September, you'll be able to find a slot with me any day from Monday to Friday in the morning or afternoon. They are more limited, but spread throughout the day, so you can always find something that suits you.
Book your slot on the laya Healthcare app under 'Remote Work Experts'.
We're also working to bring the service to more platforms and healthcare providers.
The lessons are all complete, but unfortunately the audio recording had to be scrapped because of too much construction noise and echo in the video. I have moved to a new apartment in the last few weeks and audio recording will resume in September!
It won't be long now until the course is live on the Thinkific platform. Also, above is the first draft of the course thumbnail. How does it look? :)
I will also be giving newsletter subscribers the chance to see the course first and take advantage of discounted prices early, so stay tuned!
Monthly Top Tip
Habit Stacking is a very helpful way of adopting new healthy habits by adding a new one to the end of something that you already do.
For example; want to start meditating but never seem to find the time? Well, what else do you do every day? 'Have dinner' perhaps. You could use the idea of habit stacking to start a meditation practice right after you clear the dishes every day.
With the new structures that a school run or back-to-the-office provides, you could stack habits around your commute, or arrival at home. For instance, "when I get back from dropping the kids, I go for a run".
What habits are you trying to adopt? What parts of your new (or old) routines might stack well to help get them done?...
