Hobonichi Techo for work

I’ve been using an A6 Hobonichi for my day to day personal stuff and didn’t really want to add work matters to it, although I do put my freelance HR work meetings into it. I acquired another A6 (yay for destashes) and started using that for work. It means I can bring it home with me and jot any “day job” tasks or bright ideas in it immediately. I like to set the work Hobo up a week in advance and that means adding stickers of course. Just because it’s for work doesn’t mean it can’t look pretty!

Recording Gratitude in my Hobonichi

It’s all too easy in this busy world in which we live to forget the little things that make us smile, think, reflect  and generally appreciate how much goodness there is all around us. Remembering and recording how much it means to us and how much the smallest things can brighten the dark moments.

One way to make sure we get our daily dose of gratitude is to follow a Gratitude challenge. For those of you not familiar with these they are a set of prompts, one for each day of the month that encourage us to ponder for a few moments. The prompt might be a phrase or just a single word but it is designed to make us take a few minutes out of our day and record what the prompts make us feel thankful for.

Erin Condren Hardbound, STM, planner process review

Last year I discovered the concept of “proper” planning and excitedly purchased my first ever Erin Condren planner, a vertical hardbound edition. However, I found that I was still in a planning rut, as you can see in the first photograph. I’d spent quite a bit on the planner so I wanted it to be visually attractive and user friendly but I didn’t know how to do it. Shortly afterwards, I came across a YouTube of Rachel Blundell talking about  EllieBeth Designs UK stickers and that’s when I had my light bulb moment!
