What To Do... When Plans Fall Through

No comments:

Today is one of those days where you had to be productive, made plans and then none of it ends up working out. To say it was annoying would be an understatement or maybe I'm just grumpy. My daughter got sent home from school today so it kind of changed things.

I didn't want to waste the whole day so here are some things that you can do to make up for the plans!

  1. Do something nice for yourself. Why not? If your schedule finally frees up and you have the time you can have a nice meal, make yourself look super nice for yourself, or any number of things that make you feel good.
  2. Make lists. Some of the plans for the day may have been pretty important and had to be postponed, so make a list of what you have to get done and break it down by importance, see what can be done in relation to those events. Or make a list of things you would like to do later in the week for fun. I love being able to organize my thoughts when things seem out of whack and lists really help me with that.
  3. More organization. Personally, there is always something in my house that needs organized, especially with a rambunctious little five year old. I hate cleaning but I love organizing our things and make them a new home. Usually, that means me rotating my art supplies around my desk and shelf to what I use most at the time. It always leaves me feeling accomplished.
  4. Reschedule. If first you don't succeed... See when you'll be able to do it again. I was supposed to see a few friends this morning and wasn't able to push it with what was going on, but I was able to reschedule for later today at their place. If that didn't work we made plans to meet up tomorrow. Just because something doesn't happen now, doesn't mean it can't later. Be proactive.
  5. Relax. When there are big changes in my day I don't know about I get REALLY bad anxiety. I know its like that for quite a few people, so do something to relax and get you in a good state of mind. Read a good book, go to the park, or get some coffee or tea. A guilty pleasure of mine is watching art videos on YouTube.

What are something's you like to do when plans change? Let me know!
