Something I love is the feeling of accomplishment when ticking off something on my to do list. For me, it means that no matter how busy my day was, I still managed to find time for myself and my priorities which I think is very important. It’s what’s helping me feel motivated, and keeping me on my journey of personal growth; which is why I decided to create a 3 daily do’s list that can be accomplished every day and not leave me feeling unaccomplished or overwhelmed.
What is a daily-do list?
A daily do list is a list created for an every-day-doing. It’s made up of tasks that can be done in a reasonable amount of time, basically any time.
This isn’t a list that will contain things like “paint the kitchen”, “wash the car” or “clean out the closet”; because those aren’t things you will do every day (or maybe you do and that’s cool too!). This list should be made up of the things you want to accomplish every single day.
For me, my 3 daily do’s include: drinking X amount of water/taking my vitamins, working out for a minimum of 10 minutes, and reading for 20 mins. Sounds pretty simple, right?
Why make a daily-do list?
The truth is that sometimes we let the small habits that are simple to do kinda slip past us. I sometimes forget to take my vitamins. Sometimes I don’t realize how little water I’ve consumed by the end of the day and sometimes a 10 minute workout feels dreadful, to the point that I don’t even want to start.
Creating this list for me to look at every single day serves as a reminder of the habits I want to adapt and in turn help me grow by applying them into my everyday routine.
Why only start with 3?
Here’s the thing guys, you don’t want to start this list off with 10 different things; and let me tell you why. By starting off small, you’re giving yourself a good chance at accomplishing all 3 things on that list. If you decide to start your journey of developing new habits by creating a list of 10 things to do on the daily, you will most likely end up feeling overwhelmed. Creating new habits takes time to adapt into an every day routine. So start small; and when you feel you’re able to master your 3 daily do’s, then you can start adding to the list.
I hope by creating this list you will start to see the positive changes that a simple 3 daily do’s list can have on your everyday life. I hope it will bring you one step closer into the direction of your journey to personal growth. And finally, I hope your days are filled with an abundance of bliss. 😊
