It could be discouraging if you’re having trouble identifying your personal vision given all the discourse about it. There are many different factors to think about when attempting to answer the question, “How would you spend your ideal day?” It’s perfectly fair that you might not know where to begin, but if you take into account these several aspects, you’ll be on the right track.
Do not overburden yourself with the need to have the “correct” vision. It’s crucial to learn what isn’t the proper thing as well as what is; life is truly an experiment in personal growth through failure.
It’s possible that your ideal day includes a component that you’re not even aware of yet. Consider that.
In the coming weeks and months, it will undoubtedly change as you move closer to your original concept. Keep in mind that everyone will see things differently and that your vision is malleable.
Have you ever given thought to your perfect day’s schedule? Perhaps you’ve experienced your ideal day more than once. I regularly consider my perfect day, especially as an entrepreneur building my calendar from scratch. Making the “perfect” daily routine, though, can occasionally feel unattainable, like making the “perfect” fitness programme.
I’d like to give you permission to let go of the notion that ideal = perfect before we move on to discussing how to plan your ideal day. As you go through life, your vision of the perfect day will inevitably evolve. You won’t live out every item on your list of perfect days because no two days are alike. It’s the little changes you make to your day.
You should envision your ideal day in your mind’s eye first. I find it useful to complete this activity for a perfect workday and weekend separately. Prepare a notebook and a pen before you start. There are two ways you can do this exercise. The first choice is to read the questions I’ve provided below, close your eyes, and spend five to ten minutes imagining your ideal day before writing it out. If you’d rather just start writing, respond to each question in your notepad in a stream-of-consciousness fashion.
In whichever approach you decide, give yourself permission to let go of any “restrictions” you may feel your schedule or day “should” have at the moment. The logistics can be thought on later. Feel through each minute from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep for the time being. What comes to mind? In each of these circumstances, how do you want to feel? Your notion of ideal should be used, not anyone else’s. If your body prefers to move in the afternoon, ideal doesn’t imply you should exercise for an hour every morning. Follow your instincts and your rhythms.
- How do you wake up? What time do you wake up?
- How do you spend your morning? Do you move your body in the morning, do you listen to a podcast, do you spend time with a loved one or making your favorite breakfast?
- What’s your environment like?
- What are you wearing?
- What does your workday look like? Where are you, what are you doing, who are you working with, what does your work schedule look like?
- What time do you stop working? What does your evening look like? Who are you with, what are you doing?
- Do you do any of your favorite hobbies during the day?
- How do you spend your night? What’s your bedtime routine like?
- Most importantly: how do you feel while you move through this ideal day?
