I am a huge fan of documenting, what works and sharing it because I believe that we learn something from one another. Today, I would like to share with you my personal daily routine, how I wake up, work and wind down each day.
It’s no secret that the routine you follow and the activities that you do every day greatly shape your life and your overall happiness. That’s why it’s so important to have a daily routine that works for you.
In this article, I’m going to share with you my daily routine and how it’s helped me to achieve greater levels of productivity, creativity, and focus. I hope that by sharing my routine, it will give you some ideas of how you can create a daily routine that works for you.
So, without further ado, here’s a typical day in the life of me!
Kickstarting My Day at 5 am
I have always been a morning person; I love nothing more than getting up early. It’s no secret that having a daily routine can make you feel more productive and motivated.
For me, my daily routine starts with waking up between 5am and 5.30am. After waking up, I spend some time reading my religious book and doing my devotion.
6.15 am – 7.30 pm
Breakfast / Dropping girls to school
After this, I am on my breakfast table at 6.15 am with my daughters. As we have our breakfast, we indulge in a little chit-chat and then I drop them to school. On the way, I catch up with what’s going on at their school and how they look forward to their day.
Work out / Reading Audible
Working out is important for me for a number of reasons.
- First, it helps me to stay physically fit and healthy
- Second, it helps me to relieve stress and tension
- Third, it helps me to focus and concentrate better
- And last, but not least, it helps me to feel good about myself
When I work out, I feel like I can take on anything that comes my way. I feel strong, confident, and capable. I know that I am taking care of my body and my mind, and that is a very good feeling. While working out I like to read Audible.
Working out is an essential part of my life, and I make sure to fit it into my schedule every week. I highly recommend that everyone makes time for a workout, even if it’s just a quick walk around the block. Trust me, you’ll feel better for it!
9.00 am – 11.00 am
Job sites / phone calls / emails
As an entrepreneur, I manage my three companies, Gordon Grigg LLC, The Premier Media Group and The Premier Builder Group. I have to be on my job site, meeting with clients or working on estimates. I spend the morning working hours on projects and deadlines. But even when I’m not working, I’m constantly thinking about new ideas and ways to improve my business. I’m always trying to learn and grow so I can be a better entrepreneur.
11.30 am -1.00 pm
Lunch Meeting / Networking
At 11.30am I take a break for lunch, which lasts till 1 pm. In between I do networking with different contacts and discuss business. My afternoon is spent meeting with clients, brainstorming ideas with my team and working on proposals.
2.15 pm – 3 pm
Pick Up Daughters
I am always happy to pick up my daughters from school. It is a great way to spend time with them and hear about their day. However, there are a few things I always keep in mind when doing so:
- First, I make sure to arrive on time. I know they are excited to see me and I don’t want to keep them waiting
- Second, I make sure to have a fresh, healthy snack for them. I want them to have something to eat before we head home so they don’t get too hungry
- And last, I make sure to ask them about their day. I want to know what they did, what they learned, and what they enjoyed
Picking up my daughters from school is a special time for me. It’s a time when I can bond with them and learn about their day.
3 pm -4 pm
Social media/ Clients calls
At 3 pm every day, I take some time to do social media for my business. This usually involves posting on various platforms, engaging with my followers, and planning future content. I also use this time to answer any customer questions or comments that comes in.
In addition to social media, I also use this time to attend a few client calls. This gives me a chance to check in with my clients, see how they’re doing, and see if there are any updates or new projects that I need to be aware of.
4.00 pm- 5.45 pm
I have some free time for myself. I can do whatever I want for the next hour and a half until dinner time. I know that I should use this time wisely.
No matter what I choose to do with my free time, I make sure that it is something that I enjoy and that I will benefit from.
5.45 pm-6.35 pm
Dinner / Life
Dinner time with family is a great way to catch up on the day’s events and to enjoy some delicious food. But it can also be a time to bond with loved ones and to learn more about each other.
If you’re looking to make the most of your family dinner time, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- First, try to keep the conversation light and positive
- Second, focus on the food and the experience of enjoying a meal together
- And finally, take the time to truly listen to what your family members have to say
By following these tips, you can make family dinner time a fun and meaningful part of your daily life.
Cardio / Audible / Office Work
I am often asked how I find the time to do my cardio given my busy schedule. The answer is simple: I do my cardio at 9 pm.
This may seem like an odd time to do cardio, but for me, it is the perfect time. I find that I have more energy at night, and so doing my cardio at 9 pm allows me to get a great workout in. Plus, it helps me wind down before bed and gets me ready for a good night’s sleep.
If you are looking for a time to do your cardio, I highly recommend 9pm. It may take some time to get used to, but I think you’ll find that it is the perfect time for a great workout.
I usually do a combination of running and HIIT, and I find that I can push myself harder when I do it at night. Plus, it’s a great way to wind down before bed.
I have recently taken up the audible subscription and have been reading while I do some office work. It is a great way to pass the time and also be productive at the same time. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a way to multitask and be efficient with their time. If you’re looking for a way to improve your focus and get through more books, I recommend giving Audible a try.
10.00 pm-10.15 pm
I have been writing in a journal nightly for many years now. I typically write for about 15 minutes before bed. This has become a ritual for me – a way to clear my mind before sleep and to reflect on my day.
I find that journaling helps me to process my thoughts and emotions. It gives me a chance to review my day and to set intentions for the next day.
If you’re thinking about starting a journal, I would encourage you to give it a try. It can be a helpful way to process your thoughts and gain clarity on your experiences.
10.15 pm -11.00 pm
Wife / Talk-time
During this time, I spend time with my wife talking to her. This time is important to me because it allows me to connect with her and catch up on what’s going on in her life. It’s also a time when I can share my own thoughts and feelings with her. This is our regular time to catch up on each other’s day and to talk about anything that might be on our minds. We also use this time to plan our day or week ahead. This time together is important to our relationship and helps us to stay connected. With this I wind down my day and go to sleep between 11.00 pm to12 am.
That’s my daily schedule!
