It’s the first of September so time to start a fresh list.
I’ve decided to colour code my tasks and treats, I had a bit of time on my hands today because I am stuck at home with a stinking cold. If you fancy giving this a go you will need several differently coloured pens and a notebook. Following the usual method in a previous post I started writing out my September list but this time I colour-coded the type of activity. Here are mine but you should choose your own categories –
I don’t think it needs very much explanation, green for things I want to buy, entertainment is for things like reading books, watching a film or finding a new playlist on Spotify. You will see the orange craft category fills up quite a lot space in my organiser because it’s my favourite treat. Housework/Admin in pencil includes things like paying bills or having a bit of a tidy-up. Red for places to go, whether it is a day out or somewhere different to go shopping. Social/online to remind me to update all the various social media I’m not in the least bit addicted to or even to remind me to actually speak to a real life person using my voice. Health & pamper in red for exercise, manicures and supplements.
So this is what it looks like:
It makes it much easier to see what’s on offer if you know you should really be doing more or less of a particular activity. I’m thinking about housework and adminny things like doing my accounts, but there are times when I need to focus more on exercise and health.
The pink and the red are perhaps a bit too close in colour for the difference to be obvious in evening light so perhaps next month I’ll swap the red for purple.
