Finding What Works For You
by Dr. Dale V. Atkins, August 2008

We have a lot going in our lives these days. Carving out time to fit in activities we value but never seem to find enough time for can make us feel out of sorts and drained. How do we rejuvenate ourselves when our daily lives are filled with addressing seemingly more pressing matters?

Before summer ends and schedules go full tilt, try to think about the fall and what it looks like for you. Make a conscious effort to focus on how you want to shape your schedule. Think about what you want to have in your life. This can prevent you being in a situation where you find yourself reacting to all sorts of unplanned or unanticipated events which fill up your calendar.

Now, in this last month of summer, is a good time to be proactive with works for you and soothes you NOW. Think beyond the old standby solutions. Just because something worked a few years ago it may not work for you now. Be creative. Find new things that contribute to your comfort level.

It may be appropriate to reset priorities. Focus on relationships to create time and opportunities to be with people you care about.

Go outdoors. Enjoy your environment. Look at things differently. When you do this, you will be refreshed, rejuvenated and stimulated. Turn off technology for a few hours a day to give yourself more time and energy to absorb that which is around you.

Whatever the new schedule looks like, the important thing is that it fits your needs.
