I want to be more productive. I want to create healthy habits. But there is something stopping me.
I will grasp at the littlest excuse to not do something I know is good for me. Like following a routine. I know that my day goes so much better when I follow a consistent routine.
And there’s another problem. I keep forgetting!
I need discipline and a brain. While I will keep working on the discipline, I can at least put my brain on paper.
My Brain on Paper
The main section has four parts. A place to write down your routines, a box to mark if you did it, a place to plan what you want done that day and a place to write down what actually happened.
I added the “I plan to” and the “I actually” sections after getting discouraged not getting things done like I thought I was going to be able to do. Now, when I don’t get something done I was planning to, I can write down what I did instead. Later, I can make a decision about whether I was wasting time, or if life just got in the way.
The page is broken into sections based on meals. The top section is before the kids get up and we eat breakfast. Then: lunch, snack, dinner, and bedtime routine.
The bottom section is for reviewing the day. I have found it encouraging having a place to write down what went well and brainstorm my struggles. I use the bottom right corner to write down important things that need to go in tomorrow’s plan.
I made four different versions of this tracker. They are all black ink. I see adorable beautifully colored ones and would love to make one but cannot sacrifice the ink or the writing space.
