I don't know about you but I find myself writing the same tasks week after week at the bottom of my planner (and let's be honest not doing them). I have good intentions at the beginning of the week but somehow life gets in the way, then the following week the same thing happens.
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.
I have two planners and a journal at the moment. A passion planner pro, hobonichi weeks and a B6 TN. I use the passion planner and the Hobonichi for the same thing. I put the same appointments, to do lists and trackers on each week. I put the same photos in my passion planner as I do my TN and I recount my day in my TN. Why Katie? I hear you ask. Surely you can just put this all in one planner and be done with it? Probably... but I don’t want to and here’s why.
