Tips & Tricks: Mid-year Motivation!

WashiGang team member, Bec, planned a month of study/work/life, using the new Happy Planner release, Out for Adventure, Student Sticker Book. We've come up with a few tips for planning, using a monthly planner layout, however we think this could work well for your weekly planners, too! Instead, use the same tips to plan week by week. We recommend picking a sticker book/colour scheme and a monthly or weekly planner layout before you get started. 

Here are our tips for organising your monthly planner: 
1. Create a layout plan. 
Where will you put your goals, quotes, mood trackers etc?

2. Start by adding your important dates such as, exams, due dates, class times, work deadlines, special events, meetings, birthdays etc.

3. Think about your goals for the month. 
Do you want less screen time, to prioritise exercise, to schedule time in for family and friends, etc?

4. Schedule breaks and fun things to look forward to, so you don't burn out!

5. Check in with yourself at the end of each day, using a mood tracker. 
This is a good way to track your study and work/life habits and reflect on how you're coping.
