How should I structure my day for a happy, organized life?

Ms. Ashley Koff, RD
Nutrition & Dietetics
To structure your day, set boundaries -- specific time periods during which certain tasks get completed while other, less important tasks wait. If you're prone to distractions such as e-mail, phone, or the television, put a system in place for blocking out these intrusions and addressing them only during certain times of the day. This may mean checking e-mail only once every four hours, or allowing the television to be on during specified time periods. Structure will help you to manage your busywork and place importance on things that are indeed important. Structure will also give you the motivation and inspiration to take charge in ways that will pull you out of a miserably inactive, inert, and indifferent life. You'll begin to feel happier and more in control, too.
