In this podcast series, I will be sharing how my habits, routines, and the different ways I think about time. This week I’ll be sharing my afternoon routines.
I always learn more from listening to real-life stories of how other women are “getting it done.” Thanks for letting me share mine with you!
Afternoon routines are those things we do between our daytime activities (work or school) and dinner.
A Day in the Life Afternoon Routines
Adding an afternoon routine to my schedule in my 40s was a game changer!
Today my commute home from the office provides that natural transition. In my 30s, my transition came at the end of the school day, driving in the carpool, or collecting the kids from the bus stop.
Recognizing your transition may be all you need for your brain to make a switch in priority and production.
Ultimately daily routines add structure and reduce decision-making fatigue.
Listen in as I share how I “bucket” my morning routine to line up with the kind of work I’ll be doing each day of the week.
As a bonus, I added my afternoon routine when my kids were in high school to this podcast episode.
This podcast series is not for you to compare yours and my schedules, but to open your thoughts to explore the possibilities of what could be in your everyday life. My afternoon routine has continued to change and evolve over the years and will continue to do so in the future.
Do you have an afternoon routine? Is it time to add or take something away from your afternoon routine?
