As a child, I looked forward to August more than any other month of the year. It’s my birthday month and it’s back to school month — a duo of perfection in my world. August was, and still is for me, the month of new beginnings.
As an adult, I’ve tried to use August as my month to start new habits and routines (or as a time to improve old ones). These routines make it easier to keep the clutter out of my schedule and free up the rest of my time to do what it is I really want to do.
This August, I’m re-introducing my exercise routine now that my foot is healed. I have really missed running, and I’m glad to have the go-ahead from my foot and podiatrist to start moving.
Listed below are all of the routines we’ve written about in the past on Unclutterer. If you’re struggling with time management, or just looking for a more streamlined way to get through the day, one or more of these routines might have something to offer you:
- Morning routine
- Exercise routine
- Weekly planning routine
- Weekly meal planning routine
- End-of-workday routine
- Evening chore routine
- Bedtime routine
