A Comfortable Corner
When I have a comfortable corner that is all my own, a place to think and plan my days and weeks, it allows me to settle into my comfy chair and focus on the task at hand.
What exactly do I mean? I like to get a coffee and a candle for my lamp table my favorite ink pen and my favorite planner. When it comes to planners I do use a very specific planner aka as The Happy Planner.
The most wonderful thing about this planner is, it comes out twice a year and that makes me so happy (pardon the pun). First, it comes out in January next, it comes out again in July. For me, this was perfect because I have kids in school. I prefer the school year planner. I have to keep up with tests and quizzes, field trips and school functions and all the school events that go on throughout the year.
Mom and More
My mom hat is the hat I wear the majority of the time. I’m also a 52-year-old blogger. A planner helps me plan my posts, jot down my ideas and contemplate productivity and efficiency.
Up Next, Physical Fitness
Going to the gym is a priority. I am fortunate that I have 2 gyms to go to these days. My first love is the YMCA. I try to plan my gym schedule and go 3-4 days a week. Next, when I can’t get away from home because I’m blogging or just busy doing the mom thing I have a gym here at my apartment complex. This is so convenient and makes it easier to stick to a schedule. I actually just now got back from the gym. Since it’s Saturday morning my son who is 18 and very health conscious said, “Hey Mom take a little break from blogging and workout with me.” So I did and it was a really good workout. I had planned on going later today, but, since I got an invitation to go, I took my son up on his invitation and now I can mark that one off the list.
A Comfortable Corner on Sunday
I am so looking forward to my planning time tomorrow morning. I’ll have my coffee, planner, overstuffed chair, and my favorite pen to plan out my next week. I also love using some of the motivational stickers you can get to go with the Happy Planner.
Try switching up a few things to make a place just for you to collect your thoughts and make plans. A nice fragrant candle reminds me to meditate or pray about my upcoming week. The chair needs to be comfy. Add a pillow or a super soft throw to make your corner extra cozy. I choose Sunday mornings because they are quiet and peaceful. But if you don’t like it too quiet try to put on some of your favorite music to listen to as you make your notes and plans.
Here’s to this upcoming week, I hope you enjoy your time making plans and thinking of ways to do all the things you love to do better and in a timely way.
