One of the first things I did in the new year was tear apart my bedroom. I was feeling unproductive being sick and stuck at home and for not making any official resolutions. I thought that it would be good to try and get rid of one item I no longer needed or wanted per day to help clear up clutter. Then I ended up with an entire trash bag full. Oops. That's the pile that started it all...
While I'll still try to get rid of unwanted clutter throughout the year, I want to focus on making new resolutions as they come along. New habits don't always have to start and end with the new year, so I devised a new way to help me keep track of my life.
It began with an attractive looking binder from Walmart.
I bought one that felt extremely sturdy, so hopefully it will last all year!
I would like to give special thanks to my new bath mat for providing a lovely backdrop.
Then I grabbed my favorite markers and color-coated all the categories I'll need for the year.
While writing I forgot how to spell color...
Then I printed monthly planning sheets from Word and created my own weekly planning sheets and started writing all my stuff down. I printed off enough to last the entire semester.
On my weekly planner I included daily slots to write down assignments and meetings,
A spot for specific goals, such as work on a long-term assignment, birthday recognition, and contact with family and friends,
A spot for 10 daily or multi-weekly goals,
And a spot of miscellaneous things about the week such as thoughts, quotes, or Netflix reports.
The entire blank page.
Putting my goals and daily reminders in the same place as my assignments will remind me every time I look at my planner that I need to do them. If they don't keep appearing I'll just forget about them!
Things I hope to work on this year are: good GPA, drinking enough water, able to run a 10k (by September), practice yoga, and not weigh myself. I'm going to focus on feeling good!
