4 Tips for Gaining Control of Your Day

Wednesday, 17 October 2018

If you’re anything like me, you flap about everything, and are on the move here, there and everywhere. Sometimes I lose my timings and thing get missed, so I’ve chosen my 4 top tips on gaining control of my day.

When I started drama school, I was introduced to many new methods for relaxation. For me, I found breathing techniques to work the best.  I mean, okay, yeah we all know how to breath, and at first I was a bit like ‘this is a waste of time’ but hear me out! After many hours of lying on the floor breathing, which is at drama school,  believe it or not, is a class *LOL*  I realized that in fact I didn’t know how to breath effectively. Now you can google so many breathing exercises, but that can all be kind of overwhelming, so I’ve narrowed it down to my favourite.
Breath in for the count on 4, suspend the breath (aka hold it) for 7 second, then push the air out for 8. Then repeat this 4 or 5 times.
Give it a try, and I guarantee you’ll feel calmer! I like to do this when I feel my anxiety creep in to calm myself down, or when i’ m lying in bed at night.
Allowing extra time
 Anyone who knows me, will know above all, I hate being late. The thought of being late for anything fills me with dread and anxiety. Whether its for an important appointment or just to meet my friends, an extra 5 minutes to top up my lipstick always puts me in the right frame of mind.
 Having a plan
 Much to be boyfriends distaste, I am a hauuuge planner. When I go to bed at night, I always like to know the plan for the next day. That’s so obsessive, I hear you say! And yeah. Kinda is. But if I don’t I just feel like I’m floating around aimlessly. My brain works at 100 miles an hour, allll the time! So having a plan, allows me to have better time management and much more control over my day!

 Tidy Room, Tidy Mind
 I hate a messy room with a passion. But despite this, as hard as I try, my room always ends up being a little cluttered. I find whenever this starts to happen, I don’t sleep as well, and trying to get things done without distraction is a no-no.  I find looking at a tidy dressing table or freshly made bed, to be sooo satisfying and I immediately feel a lot more calm than then it was a cluttered mess. I always feel like I’ve got much more get up and go, and also slightly smug at how tidy my room looks!
I hope these little tips help you as much as they help me! If you have any comments, drop them in the box below and we’ll have a chat. Thanks Lovelies
