How To Memory Plan

Memory planning is a term used in the community to describe a cross between planning and scrapbooking.  It is typically more artistic and involves looking back on events rather than planning ahead, and incorporates a bit of journaling.  Personally, I like having one as a decorative planner to document memories, since I have a separate functional planner for tasks.   

If you have a planner you'd like to use but don't necessarily need, this might be a setup to consider.  You can use your craft supplies, photos, doodles, and anything else you can think of to embellish your days.  Even the smallest details, such as your outfit or a song you heard, can be interesting to look back on.  When I'm filling out a planner spread for days that have already happened, I like to think about what future me would be curious about.

How To Set Up Goals For The New Year

The New Year is right around the corner, and with that comes a bunch of new possibilities! One of my favorite things to do the last week of the year is to set up my goals for the upcoming year. 
You've probably heard of SMART goals, and while they sound kind of gimmicky, there's a reason they are a thing. 

SMART goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely 

By setting SMART goals, you force yourself to be more definitive, which makes you more likely to achieve your goals! 
Before we get started, let's review what each of these terms means concerning one of my most important goals - GETTING IN SHAPE!

How To Use Planner Cards

*guest post from @kristensplanner

I love planner cards because they are such a cute way to keep personal mottos and reminders where I can see them. My collection ranges from quotes, verses, and word definitions to simple, beautiful images that inspire me.

Every month, Gena from Gilded Press sends out an e-mail newsletter with printable freebies. It correlates with her word of the month, and November's word was "grateful". She attached printable planner cards with that theme, so I wanted to show you how I'm using them!

Planning Self-Care in 2020

What do you think about when it comes to self-care? Self-care is literally taking care of yourself, and there are more opportunities in a day than you may realise. It can change daily; some days it may be lighting a candle, treating yourself to your favourite drink at Starbucks, or perhaps getting your nails done. Other days, it may be writing out a schedule of bills that need to be paid and chores that you want to get done so that you have peace of mind when you get into bed that evening.
