My Daily Routine During This CoronaVirus Pandemic

My Daily Routine During This CoronaVirus Pandemic

Hello! 

I hope you are having a great time. 

In case you missed my earlier article on My Morning Routine, please feel free to read – My Morning Routine During this CoronaVirus Pandemic.

So let’s begin, shall we?

Topics:

 

Motivation Around Me

At times, I feel discouraged while accomplishing my goals. Do you also feel the same?

I approached a new technique to avoid my discouragement. It is sticking quotes that motivates me to strive for achieving my goals. You can stick it wherever you feel is the place you visit the most. For me, my cupboard is the best one as my study table is right besides it. 

 

Few of My Cupboard Quotes

Having all those motivational quotes in front of me, I am able to go through them on a daily basis and capture these in my subconscious mind. This has led to unfolding the Secrets for My Personal Growth.

A Quote speaks about the deep reflection of life. I have explored them as a catalyst for personal growth. Besides that, I am able to fulfill my requirement for motivation by carving these into my mind.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Frequent Power Walks

Power walk, in my term, is the frequent walk you do after each break of long hour jobs. Let’s say, after the completion of one of my assignments, I play music in my phone and roam around my corridor. With this, I am able to refresh my mind for my later work. 

In this turmoil of life, I don’t have enough time to walk. I have lots of other work to do.

Do you also feel the same?

My friend, which one do you prioritize first? Is it your life, or other things on which you are busy?

If you dare to improve your life, you must make time to rejuvenate yourself as well.

Do you know how effective it has been for me to choose a power walk? I am able to give time to myself keeping all the stuff aside for about 5 minutes. 

Doing this, I am refreshing my mind and in terms of health, body to circulate blood. I am able to come back with a refreshed mind and strive for success.

Give it a try with frequent power walks and see its rejuvenating energy. 

“After a day’s walk, everything has twice its usual value.”  

G. M. Trevelyan   

 

Reading Books

Whenever I feel alone, I have someone to talk with – it’s a book. Reading books has helped me to learn something new regularly. 

Till today, I have read more than 25 books which I started just two years ago. From these books, I have learned about life, goals, and living. All to summarize together tells us to Know About Ourselves.

I get inspired by the strategies and methods the author uses to share their experience and the way to achieve success.

Books have been the main source of my understanding of personal development.

Reading books is on my daily bucket list. I spend at least 1 hour per day reading books.

Currently, I am reading The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. From this book, I am learning about eternal happiness. The simple story of a sumo wrestler in the book has been able to grasp my attention to the principle of radiant living.

Most of the books which I have read reflect on our self-growth. The lessons these books provide are effective in a practical approach. Here are some of my favorite books which have helped me to visualize my future with strong strategies:

So do read any of these books, if you get a chance. I promise, you won’t regret.

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.”

George R.R. Martin

 

Collaboration With the Nearest One

This Coronavirus Pandemic is teaching me about the importance of interpersonal skills for personal growth. As we are in lockdown, I have been able to collaborate with my roommate. 

It could have been impossible for me to track my progress and find out the importance of why I am doing without my friend. I couldn’t have been able to identify The Challenges in my Personal Development. Sometimes or the other, we might be traveling in the wrong direction. Having the friend observe our progress gets us back to remain on the track.

If you are with your family, then you can suggest one of your family members to observe your doing. If you are alone, then no worries! You can self-evaluate yourself.

Furthermore, I want to Invest in Myself. So I and my friend perform tasks that are beneficial for both of us and share the basic ideas about our learning. This saves our time as we don’t have to invest time on the topic on which our friend is learning. 

Besides, we go for a review of our weekly goals, monthly goals, and yearly goals. If one of us failed to achieve any of the mentioned goals, then the other person guides and provides honest feedback.

From the book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, I also get to know about the three mirrors of life. One is how you see yourself, other is how other people see and the final one is the Truth.

When you stick to your points only and don’t try to see from others’ perspective, you may not find the Truth. It’s essential for you to understand what your nearest ones think about you and how that links to your own Truth.

So, find the nearest one, tell them about the benefit of indulging in collaboration, and strive for mutual success.

“None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.”

Mother Teresa

 

My Streak and Productivity Score

In a streak, when we complete a particular daily goal, we add a cross mark on the calendar. With that, the chain extends to the weekly, monthly, and yearly.

It has been nearly two months since I started using streak. At first, I wasn’t able to differentiate the benefit of using streak. I used to think about it as a waste of time. Later only to realize, it is helping me to track which goals do I feel difficult to accomplish.

Moreover, I have been able to divide my daily goals according to the specific time. To say, I have divided my streak time with morning, day-time, and night activities.

 

My Productivity Calendar

Productivity score might be the new term for most of us in personal development.

How do you know about how productive you remain for the whole day?

Considering this, my friend and I found the perfect way to imply productivity scores in our daily life.

The productivity score is the rating I give to myself at the end of the day. We keep a record of our productive time and find the ratio of it with the total time we have. 

Our productivity formula:

Productivity score = Productive time  / {24 hrs – Basic needs (e.g.  sleep, foods, exercise and meditation)} 

This has made me strive for excellence with the start of the new day.

I find Productivity score as the key element in producing vibrant living with creative and visionary goals.

 

Take a Weekly Sabbatical

I learned about weekly sabbatical from none other than Robin Sharma’s book Who Will Cry When You Die.

From this, I learned about my weekly break on Sunday. I find this the most effective way to boost our productivity. I use my break to restore my energy and be prepared for the following week. 

During this break, I start off my day by staying in the garden and enjoy my surroundings. Even, I try to figure out what were the problems I faced during the past week and find out the solutions. 

I also use social media during this break to enjoy connecting with my childhood friends. 

One thing I always remember to do is watching movies. As movies have a lot to offer, I become a part of movies and learn from them. Some of the movies I watched during these breaks include:

  • The Pursuit of Happyness
  • The Shawshank Redemption
  • Life is Beautiful
  • The Intouchables
  • Taare Zameen Par(Like Stars on Earth)
  • The Wolf of Wall Street

I have written a blog post on 5 Must-Watch Movies To Develop Yourself. Please feel free to have a look.

 

Refreshing My Memories with Good People

Last but not the least, it’s inspiring when you are surrounded by people with great thinking. I always find peace when I am with my friends because we talk a lot about our goal setting and planning.

I also contact my family everyday. I feel restored sharing our happiness and establishing a good rapport with each other.

With the uncertainties of what happens when, let’s make our life paradise striving for success every single day.

    First off your cupboard quotes are inspiring. I also love reading and lately I’ve been meditating. Thanks for sharing

  2. mikeyor

    A solid routine man!
    I try to emulate a similar routine, trying to put this free time to good use. I completely agree with the weekly break. If I neglect this I tend to burn out and feel like everyday is the same, a break literally breaks up the week and allows me to appreciate the time spent working on myself in the past week

    1. Pro Investivity

      Hey Mikey,
      Good to see you around.
      Thanks a lot, man!
      Exactly! Without the break, we will burn out, and then everything falls apart.
      I’m glad that you are able to relate this post with your situation, and I hope that your daily routine is also going well.
      Have a good day, Mikey! 🙂

  10. I love hearing other people’s daily routines, so this was a really interesting read! I find your first cupboard quote interesting : stimulus, freedom to choose, response.

    Great article!

    1. Pro Investivity

    Probably the best thing out of all this is that I’ve had heaps of time to read through books and articles that I had been meaning to get around too !
    Carnegie’s book is top notch and I often go back and skim through it

    1. Pro Investivity

      Thank you Kalani for sharing your thoughts. Reading books inspire us and motivated, isn’t it? Even when it is of Carnegie’s book, that’s very helpful.
