Morning Routine Problems employer cycling exercise routine Tiimo qigong own weight exercise coffeemachine

Only a few days until I start at the new
. Time to figure out a new morning

Yesterday I discovered "
", an iOS and Android App designed to create a plan of your day based on minute-wise scheduling. I tried some things and was immediately hooked.

I started planning my ideal workday, and since I'm on paid vacation for the next three days (before starting at the new employer), I thought I should try it. I want to do
own weight exercise
right after breakfast so I can start the day with feelings of happiness after achieving goals early.

My plan was as follows:
06:00 - 06:01 Waking Up
06:01 - 06:02 Turn on the

06:02 - 06:03 "Make the Bed"
06:03 - 06:20 Eat Breakfast & Brush Teeth
06:20 - 06:40

06:40 - 07:00

07:00 - 07:20
own weight exercise

07:20 - 07:40 Shower & get ready for the day
08:00 Start to Work

The plan fell into pieces right after waking up. :) It turns out I need more than three minutes to get up, walk to the coffee machine and make the bed. Also, breakfast in 15 minutes isn't really possible. Besides that, eating breakfast before working out was a bad idea altogether.

At least I did
before heading to the shower at 08:15 today. And now I'm sitting here writing about it. :)

So, I have to change up a few things and maybe cut the
part into two pieces. One day
and the other
own weight exercise
. But I'm not sure about that yet.
I something I want to do every day I'm at home, so that won't be moving for now.

I also need to integrate writing into the morning routine at some point. I'll update you again tomorrow.

For the curious, this is the Qigong Video I'm using, and this will be the 20-minute workout. I'm cycling on an Indoor Cycle IC6 on Zwift.
I learned a Qigong breathing exercise last week. It was incredibly powerful. Can you share the one you used? I don't see a link.

This high resolution planning ahead seems to work for some people. I really looked up to this ability in the past but I've since come to actually see and accept that it doesn't work for me. Maybe it'll work for me in the future, but it doesn't work right now.

For me it's because the planner-me doesn't actually know what the present-me wants. So whenever i'd try a time-boxed practice run of scheduling my days and then following them, i would never feel as joyful as if I took a more meta approach... plan the week in general, and then let the present me figure out the details in the moment.

One cool thing i'm curious about is: is there any way for us to follow your live schedule? Does the app publish it anywhere so we can subscribe?

i dislike scheduling myself but love seeing how others schedule themselves lol

 As far as I see I can only share one day at a time. But my general progress will be shared when I've got the page for the tracking I'm doing currently (Life Change Posts) finished :)
