Weekly Spread: February 24th to March 2nd

Last week I introduced you to a technique I am using to work on my relationship with time for the purposes of mental health and self care. You can check that first post out here: http://www.crazycatnerd.com/meowing/2019/2/18/weekly-spread-february-17th-to-23rd

Last Week

Here’s the completed version of last week’s spread:

It looks like I was pretty negligent on my hobbies, so I need to aim for a bit more balance. I ended up adding things to my weekly to-do list, but I checked off more than I thought I would. So, I’ve made a few more slots on the list, but left some of them blank to be filled in over the next couple days. I met my goals for steps, level up life and page views, so I can up my expectations on those a bit. It seems my EBT skills (the graph) drop off on Thursday/Friday which is something to be mindful of.

This Week

Layout:

Overall, I think last week’s layout worked pretty well. I didn’t use the schedule area (Sun, Mon, etc… beneath the calendar) so I shrunk that area and added a larger sticker. I added an “email” goal bar as I’m trying to clean out my inbox.

I shortened the Self Care area, as I had too many goals. I also increased the blog area.

Goals:

  1. Reduce E-mail Clutter: My inbox is overflowing. This week I want to drop the Google-labeled “important” e-mails from 560 to 510. So handling 50 e-mails.

  2. For my work-based health programs, I plan on walking 52,000 steps this week, doing three sessions of 11 minutes of stretching exercises, taking three mindful walks, getting at least six hours of sleep on five different nights and completing one activity for my Hooswell “Journey”.

  3. In my hobbies, I’d like to spend time playing The Sims, practicing doodling, organizing my Disney pin collection, and working on my next session of Dungeons and Dragons.

  4. For my self care goals this week I’d like to do:

    1. One meditation exercise

    2. 3 extra “5 minute pickups” to help with decluttering

    3. Play a game on Steam that is not Civilization

    4. Complete one task for tax preparation

    5. Start keeping track of my water intake in the Fitbit app

  5. I still need to give you a post about the “Level Up Life” app, but my goal in there this week is to earn 300 additional XP.

  6. I’m starting my next class series with EBT from a local provider, so keeping track of my check-ins and joy points (two EBT techniques) has become a priority. I’m hoping to get more of each this week.

  7. I’ve made a more specific list of things I want to achieve this week. In future week’s, I may do each task more than once per week, but for now I’m setting my goal at just once per week and see what happens.

Thank you for being my accountability! ;) What are your goals for this week? Are there any topics/tasks/goals from above that you’d like to hear more about? Let me know in the comments!

Mail Call: An Advent Calendar with Journal Supplies!!!!

Yesterday, I received the package containing the advent calendar I ordered from one Mrs. Brimble. I’m SO EXCITED.

I adore advent calendars and I typically have a couple to open each season. In the past, I have done Lego calendars, Tsum-tsum calendars, and others. This year, I wanted something more practical…something useful that wouldn’t create more clutter (currently a focus in my home) but would still make me gleefully happy and childlike. Thankfully, I stumbled upon this calendar!

Mrs. Brimble’s Advent Boxes are individually wrapped gifts of planner supplies. I got the washi tape box, which I found on Etsy. However, they have one with general planner supplies too. You can bet that if I like this one, next year I’ll be getting both!

I will post updates with photos of my treasures throughout the month of December.
