Buying a Diary is something that you need to tackle if you want to be organised throughout the year – but there are so many diaries to choose from, so where do you start?! I have done some diary shopping (its a hard life!) and have picked my favourite 6 diaries to hopefully make your diary choice for 2014 that little bit easier.
This month I am getting into the planning mode, and this post is all about offering you a free printable monthly calendar for 2014. Having a monthly overview of certain things can really help, and this monthly planner does the job for you!
When looking for any type of presents for people, I like to decide up front on whether its going to be a present of “wants” or a present of “needs”. By that I mean that its always lovely to open something decadent, something that you don’t really need and would maybe never buy yourself – thats a “want” – and they are fantastic gifts to get of course… On the other hand, theres “needs”.
December! This month is all about – Christmas of course!
Theres absolutely no getting around the fact that the festivities will totally dominate whatever you are getting up to, and you want to be prepared so you can enjoy them too!
I love quotes, and inspirational quotes are a way to get a little positivity into my day quickly and easily. They can really help to give a boost to the day, as they enable you to see things from a different perspective, especially if you are having a tough day – which, lets face it, we all have! So – lets get a little inspiration into the day right now! Here are my 3 favourite inspiring quotes at the moment, and I hope you get inspired from them too!
I have always loved books and reading.
My favourite times as a child were when I was tucked up in bed with my torch, reading under the covers so my parents didn’t know I was still awake – I suppose I should have known then that I was a night owl!
However, there was always an issue with reading
Have you ever wondered why some things seem to stay organised when others just refuse?!
The more stubborn to keep organised items are usually things that you also use more often, and therefore have more need to be organised.
You can live with systems that aren’t working because you are used to them and have often found workarounds that will suffice. You may barely even realise that theres an issue anymore – so deeply ingrained is your way of doing things.
The problem is that some things that could be done more easily and with less pain to you are never dealt with head on – because its a perceived waste of time to sort it out.
I was at the gym the other week, as usual, and while I was putting everything into a locker, the last thing I always do is grab a routine list from my bag.
I have several different routines that focus on different things, and I try and change them around frequently so I don’t get used to them and they make me work as hard as I can.
However, on this particular day, I had forgotten to re-pack my lists after taking them out over the previous weekend to make changes etc….
One of my favourite times of the year is when I get my hands on my new diary.
I love the feeling of anticipation of what the year ahead will bring, starting with a clean slate so to speak, and the idea that I can make things work even better for myself and my family over the coming year, and make the most of it.
