Unfortunately, when you are late, it sends a message
The truth is that you are in complete control of being on time. You can choose to create patterns that allow you to get where you need to be without chaos. You are worth it and important enough to prioritize – and so are all the things you want in life, from functional and healthy friendships to being successful at work and in recovery.
Here’s how you can get started making changes in your life that allow you to live without the chaos of always being late:
When you get organized about your life and work on being on time to the things you want to do, you will find you have more time to accomplish the things that need to get done in general. Additionally, actively managing your time can help to decrease stress and limit negative interactions with others that are based on others’ perceptions of your lateness, which can remove triggers for relapse.
The best way to get started is to pick one thing on the above list and implement it to the best of your ability. How will you begin the process of improving your time management this month and showing up on time for your life?
