LYSU Ep 84

So this week I talk about resting and reset.
I want to encourage you to find a way to rest and reset.
That may mean that we need to look at our goals reevaluate them or even re-defined them.
Rest and reset can provide a course correction and this is what shipping and airliners do to make sure they are on the correct course and based on the correct data and observation they adjust to course to their destination.
Because life tends to get us a bit off course once in a while.

I think Rest can look different depending on the person, what you’re going through, so let’s not look at the normal idea of resting as not doing nothing BUT could include that.
Thank about what are some ways you can destress or reevaluate where you’re at?
and I also think we need to work this in our daily lives, either weekly or daily spend time in “REST”

Below are some ideas that might help you rest and reset
Suggestions to resting
Take a break from Social media
Getting away alone
Do something fun
Get enough sleep
Spend time with Family & Friends
Read a book
Find a way to de-stress

And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when He rested from all His work of creation.

~ Genesis 2:3

Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the Lord your God.

~ Exodus 20:8-10

And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.

~Exodus 33:14

In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety.

~Psalm 4:8

He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.

~Psalm 23:2-3

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.

~Psalm 37:7

Advantages of Personal Organization

What are the advantages of organization?

  • Reduces anxiety and stress caused by not having control of things
  • Increases your efficiency, enabling you to do more things in less time
  • Frees up time to accomplish more things
  • Creates healthy organization and filing habits that allow you to search for and find things much faster
  • Generates responsibility
  • Induces self-control and discipline

So what stops of from getting organized ?

  • Procrastination, the act of leaving something to be done later when there is no consequence for not performing a task
  • Mental tiredness
  • Physical tiredness
  • Lack of prioritization
  • Lack of definition in tasks
  • Problems with self-discipline
    Tips to think about
  1. A place for Everything and Everything in its place

For everything that you own, designate a place for it.

Something doesn’t have a place? Make one. Then simply put things back where they belong when you’ve finished using them.

It’s simple and effective, but hard to do at first until you consistently form the habit.

IF you don’t like where it is MAKE a NEW HOME for it.

  1. Designate times

One of the best ways to keep your life organized is to create routines.

You probably have a morning routine on working days. What about lunchtimes, evenings and weekends?

Routines mean you don’t have to constantly make decisions about what to do and when to do it. For example, you could routinely check your personal emails at lunchtime.

You can have too much of a good thing though; use enough routine to make a difference, but not so much that you get bored.

  1. Start small

If you want to know how to organize your desk, home or office, you don’t have to conquer everything at once. Choose a small chunk (maybe the top of your desk, or a drawer?) and organize that.

Use the tip after this one to keep it organized, and practice that system until it becomes habit.

Once you’ve got on top of that you can expand your to something else.

  1. Put it away promptly and properly

Done using something? Most people will put it down somewhere nearby, with the intention of putting it away later. But disorganized places are full of these intentions.

Instead of letting things pile up, put them away immediately.

This principle applies for pretty much anything.

  1. Capture it

Information and requests come at you verbally, digitally or on paper.

Use the simplest, fewest and most accessible capture tools you can to act as your inboxes.

Have an in tray and dump everything on that, then choose a regular time to go through it. This works particularly well if you really want to organize paperwork.

  1. Keep filing simple

If your filing system is too complicated or inaccessible, chances are you won’t use it.

  1. Make sure it’s usable

If you’re still not sure how to get organized, ask yourself two questions:
Have I formed the habits I need to get and stay organized, and are my systems simple and accessible enough?
