Research has shown that moving houses can be one of the most stressful experiences! Sometimes, more than a relationship breakdown, divorce or even a new job... And since I happen to have done this quite recently, I admit that the stress levels can be really high! 😬
When it comes to organising and planning your week, a lot of times it feels like the weeks fly by so quickly that you can’t help but ask yourself “Where did the time go?”.
I know. I’ve been there. Many times!
I used to constantly complain that ‘I don’t have enough time!’ and wish for more hours in the day.
Bullet journaling has helped me set up a process of effectively planning my week.
I have a thing for notebooks, planners and to-do lists. I like to collect them, write in them and keep them on my shelves. It makes me happy to keep all those memories in each notebook and be able to go through it any time I want.
Also, using pen and paper automatically sets my brain in a focused mode! I don't know why, but it does!
When I write things down, I put my head in order and it makes me more productive.
Today I'm going to talk about a subject that's very close to my heart. And that is breast cancer. Unfortunately, cancer has affected many members of my family. My mum was diagnosed with a very aggressive type of breast cancer in 2008 and after a long battle she's cancer free for the past 7 years and I'm so grateful for that. That wasn't the case for her twin sister... My aunt was diagnosed in June 2016 and she lost the battle to cancer in May 2017... It has really affected all the family and we miss her so much...
I was contacted by Julie, who is a breast cancer survivor, to create a weekly spread with the pink ribbon. I was very happy to create one for her, and I thought that, since October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I could share it with all of you.
I like to make to-do lists. They keep me focused, organised and more productive. I prefer using pen and paper for my lists. Call me old school if you like, but I find that my brain functions better this way. I remember things easier and I'm more productive. I also like my to-do lists quite detailed, to make sure I don't forget anything. I'm always on a quest to find the best ways to create the perfect to-do list that will help me achieve my goals and be very productive. Today, I'll share with you some of the ways that I found to work for me.
