Yesterday all of us Coaches shared some of our tactics with each other for managing our lack of structure. Yes, we even struggle with this.
Coach Heidi shared with us her hand-drawn color coded schedule and it inspired me to make the one below. A schedule needn't be detailed down to the minute, it be can very coarse. Sometimes all we need to is know that in this block of time we do these things and in that block of time we do those things.
Coach James shared that he makes lists of everything he needs to do and then prioritizes the list. I also use this technique and I follow the Eisenhower Matrix. This system prioritizes based on the 4 levels shown below. I think of them as:
A strategy that Coach Kendra uses is to set a timer for important things. She allows herself time to eat each meal. She gets up every morning, doesn't press snooze, and leads the 6am Zoom class. She sets aside time specifically to do things that are important to her.
You can also do this for important habits like drinking water. One of our Bingo squares is drinking 1/3-1/2 your body weight in ounces of water. Who cares how much this make you pee! You're working from home anyway:-) You can set a timer to ensure you drink enough water. Set your timer for every 30 mins and drink 4 ounces of water.
You can even download a free App for your phone to help keep your hydration on track. Click on the image below to learn about 8 free hydration apps recomended by TheQuench.
Coach Dover struggles with motivation to workout alone. I think we all share that struggle right now. You have your Coach and your Quaranteam to help you be accountable and motivated. Our coaching team is doing that for each other.
We all have shared struggles and each of us has a strategy we can share.
Share with us a strategy you use for a struggle you have in the comments.
