Implementing the Routine
The routine I created above was a response to the time-management self study we did on our daily lives. I noticed deficiencies I had in many areas and then made a plan designed to help me get better where I am struggling.
This week is the first week I have implemented the routine and it has started out working great. I get all of my work done throughout the day so after I go to the gym I have a couple of hours to kick back and relax.
The second week is when I really felt like I fell into my routine. Knowing what I was going to do everyday when I woke up in the morning helped me manage my stress and my studies. I go to bed tired and wake up refreshed and ready to go again.
Looking into the future
As the semester ends it is important to notice that our routines are about to change big time. Next semesters classes and workload are going to have to require an entirely new routine around them. Now that I have been set into my routine for a couple weeks I don't think it'll be hard to fall into another one for next semester.
To help myself ease into next semesters routine I am going to try and develop a soft routine over winter break and then reevaluate after the first two weeks of school. After some time has passed and I have a feel for what the semester is going to bring
