- Packing lists for clothing, medications, toiletries, and makeup so that I won’t forget important things that would be difficult or time intensive to replace away from home. Look at the list when I come home, add what I needed and didn’t have, and subtract what I brought and didn’t need.
- Leaving home list: What needs to be done to close up my house and be gone? Mine includes fill up the car’s gas tank, take out garbage/recycling, change sheets, do laundry, close windows, tell neighbors, confirm toilet isn’t running, turn down thermostat, turn off Wi-Fi, water plants, and have food in the pantry and freezer ready to cook quickly and eat.
- Coming Home list: My list includes turn on router/Wi-Fi, pull food from freezer, tell neighbors I’m home, check the thermostat and unpack.
- Activity lists for hiking, swimming, biking, jogs/walks: I have some dedicated bags with everything I use for a specific activity. For swimming, I have a bag with a towel, goggles, swim cap, ear plugs. For quick hikes I have a backpack with pepper spray, multitool pocket knife, wet wipes, and a ready to fill water bag. I have a hiking list to help me pack my backpack quickly and not worry about forgetting anything when I decide on an impromptu hike.
- Keep makeup and toiletries minimal and store them in cases that I grab and go.
- Use online banking and stay current with bills so that I don’t have a huge amount of work to do before I can leave.
- Organize medications and supplements in single serve packaging that’s ready to take with me.
- Create a daily fitness practice that includes stretching and strength movements that can be done anywhere and don’t rely on equipment, location or good weather.
- Have snacks on hand that meet my dietary preferences and I can bring with me.
