A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Meal Planning and how putting a little time up front planning the menu for the week can save a lot of time and reduce emotional stress throughout the week. It takes out the thinking and negotiating of what to eat down to pure execution (bonus if shopping is already done for the week), which is helpful when you are tired and want to choose the quickest, easiest and most cost effective way to fill the stomach.
Similarly, when our core UYC team members talk to each other about the planning of the upcoming week(s), one of us might say something like, "I'm meal-planning my blogs."
Life happens, and front-loading your most important commitments (the stuff that really matter to you) can mean the difference between making them happen and making excuses (legitimate though they may seem). Meal-planning can mean the difference between continuously experiencing a sense of accomplishment or of failure; of experiencing feeling in control of your life or of feeling like life is controlling you; of seeing intentions manifest versus intentions fade. Unintended life occurrences can be looked at as a sign that it "wasn't meant to be," or we can decide that we are our own self-authority, and we can meal-plan what's important to us. It offers us flexibility and a better chance at flow with a lot less emotional stress and drama.
