Australia Sports Foundation

Over the past 30 years the ASF has distributed hundreds of millions of dollars to thousands of Australian sporting clubs, organisations and athletes to help develop an inclusive and active sporting nation, strengthening local communities.

The Sports Foundation is classed as a ‘Type 1’ Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR), meaning we can give a tax deduction AND spend funds on the cause/purpose/project intended.

Routine Helps – Create a New Daily Routine

 The National Mental Health Commission has come together with mental health organisations, experts and leaders to launch #InThisTogether – a national conversation that everyone can join in on, sharing practical tips online to support the mental health and wellbeing of Australians during #COVID19.

For many, our daily routine has changed, and we need to set a new routine, especially in isolation. This is a great opportunity for us to look at what we do when on autopilot and see if there are areas we can make changes. Keep it simple, small changes can grow into life-changing outcomes. Here are some tips to help you create a new routine.

Start by writing down all the things you do when you wake up…Wake up, lights on, brush teeth, walk the dog?

Here are some questions you can ask yourself to get started:

  • What things should I do before going to work?
  • Which tasks should I do to get the children ready for learning?
  • What should I do to exercise?
  • What meals will we have today?
  • What can I do for me today?

Break your list of tasks up into these 4 main areas- In the morning, During the day, Getting ready for sleep and During the night.

It is important to include something specific for yourself- such as meditation, exercise, phone calls with friends, listen to music. Your routine and expectations might not fit in nearly as perfect as you expect, and that is okay. The point is to make use of your time and help to introduce activities that bring you joy.

If you make just one change that saves you 10 minutes per day, you can regain 60 hours of your precious time back each year. Why not introduce something new to your life, by allocating that 10 minutes, we’ve got time right now!

Over the coming weeks we will bring you information to help you develop some healthy habits that will influence your wellbeing and ability to reach your full potential. (Click here to download template)
