How I Spend Every Saturday.
“Productivity is never an accident. It is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning and focused effort.” – Paul. J. Meyer.
Having a solid and consistent routine is something that I cherish. I love the days where I rise early and accomplish so much before 9am. It’s days like this where I truly feel like an unstoppable force!
I’ve often spoken about and have previously shared my morning and nightly routines. However, one thing that I have not previously shared in detail is how I spend every Saturday. I wanted to write this post as I often receive questions as to how I manage my side hustle with a demanding full time job. In addition to spending time early mornings and evenings on Boss in Heels, I also try to utilise every Saturday as effectively as possible.
Choosing to sacrifice brunches and other social events on Saturday to work is a personal decision I have made. The reason I made this decision was to be able to dedicate the time necessary to work on my goals and my dreams. I am not saying that everyone should sacrifice part or all of their weekend to work. I simply wanted to share the way in which I schedule my day, if working on a side hustle is something you wish to do and struggle to find the time.
Here is what a typical Saturday looks like for me:
6:30am: Wake up & make the bed.
6:35am: Gratitude practice and meditation using the Headspace app.
6:50am: Get ready for the gym. My workout clothes, shoes, towel and water bottle are already laid out the night before.
7:00am: Complete a one hour combined cardio and weights class at the gym. I train at F45 training.
8:00am: Shower and get ready.
8:30am: Eat breakfast whilst working through emails, responding to messages etc.
9:00am: Write a blog post (or two) for Boss in Heels. This often depends on my writing flow for the day. I am usually much more productive writing articles first thing in the morning rather than later in the day, so I like to tackle this task first.
11:00am: Walk to the local cafe for my daily coffee.
11:15am: Continue writing for Boss in Heels and producing other requested content.
1:00pm: Lunch break: I usually have lunch either at home, or walk up to my favourite local cafe for a healthy bite to eat.
2:00pm: Prepare social media posts, podcast interviews, work on my financials and other related tasks.
3:30pm: Tea break. I usually have peppermint tea and snack on some nuts.
3:45pm: Continue working through any other projects or tasks.
5:30pm: Wrap up for the day. If I have an event or dinner to go to, then I start getting ready for that. Otherwise, if there’s no where in particular I have to be, I may use this time to cook dinner and prepare my meals for the week to save me having to do it on Sunday.
