8 Reasons to Start a Daily Routine

8 Reasons to Start a Daily Routine

As most of you that know me, know I like to maintain a daily routine. Yes, not all days run smoothly but you do your best. It makes life in the end a little less stressful.

Do you want to get more done with your life? Does there not seem to be enough hours in the day? Do you constantly find yourself behind on all the projects, tasks and jobs you wish to achieve? Just imagine what you could do with increased time and efficiency from an improved daily routine.

Creating your best daily routine. Reasons why (and how) to create an unstoppable daily routine. This infographic is going to help you create the perfect daily routine for success in all aspects of your life.

Find Work-Life Balance with a Powerful Daily Routine

Have you ever imagined what your life would be like if your days were filled with purpose, productivity and time to enjoy the little things, rather than the chaos, confusion and anarchy that may be part of your life now.

You can make this happen by building a daily routine that perfectly blends your personality with your career and personal obligations.

Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to stick to a day-to-day ritual. You might be so busy that you can’t add anything else to your crowded schedule. Or you might be following advice that doesn’t match who you are. (Like forcing yourself to wake up at 5 a.m. when you work best late a night.)

So what’s the secret to creating a daily routine that sticks? The answer: Build one that matches your natural energy levels and gives you the flexibility to meet all of your day-to-day obligations.

All you have to do identify these activities and focus on them instead of worrying about time-wasting activities. The great thing about this principle is that, once you’re mindful of it, you learn to focus on the 20% that yields the best results.

Baby Food Guidelines

When can your baby start eating solid foods? What about meat? Pediatricians answer all your baby food Qs. This guide gives you all the information you need to know on what to feed your little one(s)!

We can all agree that gauging when to start a baby’s first solid foods can be stressful, but Fisher reminds new parents to focus on the signs of readiness as a top priority instead of focusing solely on age. In her practice, she’s seen some babies who are ready for their first taste at 4 months, while others do better with solids at 6 months of age.

You can consider it a win once your baby has successfully kept down 2 to 3 tablespoons of food. Transitioning a baby from liquids to solids can take some time, Curtiss advises. “The first few times a baby is offered solids, she may spit it out, get it all over and not really know what to do with it. I generally recommend that parents take it slow and just have fun with it.”

If your child meets the criteria listed by Curtiss and Fisher above and has the approval of their pediatrician, you can move along to the next stage of feeding. “Usually, the first food to be introduced is a single grain cereal, such as rice, mixed with breast milk until it is the consistency of pudding and fed on the spoon,” Curtiss explains. But you can also start with a vegetable such as sweet potato or avocado. Fruits are also a popular choice for little babes developing their taste buds for the first time — and they’re easy to mash.

Remember: The most important thing before starting solids is getting your pediatrician’s approval. Both articles breakdown age groups and recommended foods.

Managing Cravings

An important question to ask before eating – am I hungry?

Eating when stressed happens to all of us. It is a normal part of life, however if it happens too often, it can lead to even more stress and no one needs that!

I’ve also included a great guide to all our favorite “bad” food cravings, which breakdown the why behind the craving and what “healthy” food we should reach for to help us conquer this battle.
