One tool that has been helpful is The Daily Checklist. I learned about it from Leo at Zen Habits (an incredible resource in cultivating healthy habits). Put 5-7 things you want to do on a daily basis. You can change it any time. Allow it to help you stay focused on what's important.
Here is my Daily Checklist:*
- Spend time with God
- Spend time with family
- Eat fruits and vegetables
Simple, right? I've been using the Daily Checklist all week, and have experienced so much peace and contentment. Each day, as I do these tasks, I am confident that I am tending to the important things.
* I use the to do list app Any.DO, so have easy access to my Daily Checklist from my iPhone and computer. It is my favorite productivity app. Get it.
