MAKE A TO-DO LIST
Hello there! Hope ya have a good day.
Sometimes, I like to have a nice list of stuff I need to do/remember for a day. And it can't hurt if its quirky and prrrtty. So, here we go.
Include things that could improve you daily productivity and health.
I'm not always great with sticking to schedule. So starting off early in the day with a planned schedule helps me a lot! In the top right column, I have a heart (for saying if you are exercising that day or not), a dish (what you are gonna have to eat for the most important meal of the day), a calendar (upcoming appointments within the next week), and a little exclamation thinga-ma-jiggy (for important things you have that day).
Make it pretty. If you like.
For me, making a fun-looking schedule is kinda important for my productivity. Next to the titles, add little illustrations. I put a teacup next to my "TO DO" category, because tea is da best.
Practice. Have options!
I had a whole separate page of options. I had a list of blues that I was debating using for the teacup. The painting of the sandwich was an alternative to no illustration by the meal column in the bottom right. I also had color options for the title. For the exercise section, I was arguing using weights or climbing gear. I went with the climbing gear.
MY TO DO LIST
Top Left Column: Top 3 most important things to do that day.
Top Right Column: Health stuff and appointments.
Middle Left Column: A specific list of times things need to be done that day, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Middle Right Column: A checklist.
Bottom Left Column: Exercise! I like how this part of the schedule turned out the most.
I painted a pair of climbing shoes and a red coiled rope. Climbing is one of my favorite means of exercise. So, this would inspire me to be active!
Bottom Right Corner: Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack (or sweet), and water. I'll write down what I had and how much water I drank.
I encourage you to make a schedule that works for you! Plus, its really fun.
