Having the energy to engage with work, young family and looking after myself
My Living Life Better Goals..
Create moments of reset during the working day
Increase level of exercise
Changes I will make to achieve my goals
Consider the today / tomorrow list if brain is active before bed
Consider using an eye blind - this helps create 'darkness' and is also a good psychological cue for sleep
Reset - working at home creates a challenge of getting up and just jumping straight into work. Think about how you can reset:
Physically - short walk mid morning or afternoon
Nutrition - have a cuppa away from your desk mid morning and mid afternoon
Intellectually - if you feel the day is taking control of you think about the concept of a micro win - what can you do in the next 60 to win the next hour. Take control back of the time.
Exercise - think about exercising in the morning and set a goal of x many sessions per week.
Who will support me and hold me accountable for each of these areas?
I guess this is going to be your partner and you! You could consider making a diary for exercise, sticking it up on the fridge door and ticking it off when done. This sounds simple, it is simple, but seeing what you have done / not done can often be motivating. Ideally get someone else to tick it off when done!
How will I measure whether I have successfully made these changes?
In the pre questionnaire part of the assessment your subjective response to 'I don't feel stressed' was to strongly disagree - it would be good to shift this to a more positive stance.

If you want more info on sleep this is a really good book 'Why We Sleep' by Matthew Walker
