Magical Monday Braindump: Pick Me Up List

To change things up a little I thought I’d do a video post!

This week why not braindump your….

Pick Me Up Activities List

If you’ve got a Life is Crafted starter pack planner, or the List & Planning pack (I’m taking down the PDFs soon so if you’re interested in them get them now!) There is a page called ‘Life Up’ that has a place for these things.

This is your go to list for times when you’re feeling out of sorts and need to help lift yourself out of these moods. Trust me, the next time you’re feeling weirdly uneasy or down you’ll be so happy you have this list!

Take action now!

Write your own list of things that will make you feel better when you’re feeling BLEH! You can keep adding to it as you go. Put at least two things on the list NOW!

On my list

My pick me up activities include:

  • Going for a walk with Zander
  • Doing a yoga class
  • Calling my sister Liane or my bestie Chloe
  • Dancing around to loud cheesy, sing-a-long music
  • Reading ‘The Nice Files’
  • YouTubing funny videos
  • Reading my personal mission statement

What’s on your list? Share one goal with us below!

If you have a lot going on in general , here’s a post I wrote about creating your own Magical Monday Braindump party and get all the ‘to dos’, ‘somedays’ and ‘gosh, darn it, I REALLY have tos’ in a list.

Magical Monday Braindump: Things to do in May

May Dreams Monthly Goals

It’s almost the end of the month. Yup, April’s almost behind it and it’s time to look ahead and make May gloooooooooorious (that last word was said in an annoying high-pitched sing song tone).

This week why not braindump (and plan and organise)….

Things to do in May (aka May Goals)

If you’ve got a Life is Crafted starter pack planner, each month begins with a Monthly Dreams page. If you have got one of my little lovelies, no problem, just grab a page and title it May Dreams (perhaps washi tape the hell out of it first – love washi, it is addictive ;)…..

Then list down all the things you’d like to accomplish in May. If it makes it easier break it down into categories like:

  • Work
  • Social
  • Family
  • Self
  • Finances
  • Fun
  • Health
  • Anything else that is relevant to you

Take action now!

You may want to just jot down short points and then nut them out when it’s time to focus on that goal. Or you may want to craft them into real actionable goals. It’s totally up to you, but I challenge you to have at least one thing on the list that inspires and stretches you and you write out fully.

I recommend reading this list everyday and planning in times to accomplish them and then doing that magical ‘tick off’ when it’s complete.

On my list

I generally do this every month. Over on my other blog I write out my monthly dreams and do a review on last month’s progress. I normally do it on the last day of the month (and being totally human I’ve missed a couple of months along the way!) but it is another nice way to maintain progress and see what I’ve achieved (and have an excuse to pat myself on the back or reassess my priorties!).

I often jot stuff down on future months when I come up with ideas in the present.

On my list so far is:

  • Celebrate my birthday
  • Archery with friends
  • Complete designs

Just call them! Photo found on weheartit

It’s Monday and I’m leaping out of bed because I’m loving what I do! Happy Monday to you all, it’s time for the (drum roll please….) MAGICAL MONDAY BRAINDUUUUUUUUUUUMP!!!!!!!

This week why not dream braindump the….

List of people you want to get in contact with again!

Those girlfriends you haven’t seen for a year. That old neighbour you want to reconnect with. The distant family member you think of often but haven’t actually reached out to in a while. Most of us probably have a few people we’d love to say hello to but have been too ‘busy’ to or feel that too much time may have passed.

Let’s take this opportunity to make a list of those darlinghearts that we are wanting to hug in person, speak to over the phone/skype or pen a letter to. Life is too short and time moves too swiftly to just think about them. Take this opportunity to make it happen! I bet they’d love to hear from you.

Take Action Now!

Use five minutes now to jot down the names of the people you want to reach out to. Then put a day down that you’ll take that action. Feels good doesn’t it?!

On My List

My childhood BFF
Aunty Ursula
Cousin in the states
School friends in Perth

Magical Monday Braindump: To Do in the Kitchen

Master To Do ListWelcome to the Magical Monday Braindump Party!

Get all your To Do’s for the week out of your head and on to paper – If you think it, Ink It! Here’s the steps to creating your own Magical Monday Braindump party

Then, this week why not dream braindump your list of things you need….

To Do in Your Kitchen!

The Man and I had a big (and very needed!) cleaning day yesterday. We’ve both been slogging away at our desks for days on end and had really neglected all those mundane cleaning jobs…

So we blasted some music, divvied up the tasks (amongst smaller things, him – bathroom and vacuuming, me – kitchen and mopping).

While working in the kitchen I noticed a bunch of things that could benefit from some loving attention and decided to start a list that we can tackle at another date.

On My Kitchen To Do List

  • Organising the pantry (and checking expiry dates!)
  • Clean fridge
  • Clean and organise utensil drawer (can’t find anything at the moment!)
  • Reorganise glasses and plates
  • Scrub kickboards
  • Go through and see what’s in all the high cupboards and that mysterious place the junk drawer
  • Clean the hard to reach areas – ceiling corners, exhaust, above fridge

One of my Master To Do lists is categorised as ‘Home’ and I’ve titled one of the columns ‘Kitchen’ and put all the to dos there.

I’m not beating myself up about not having all these things done and spotless right now. I have other priorities, but my brain can rest easy knowing that I have these tasks listed in an easy to find place for when the time is right.

That is the beauty of having well organised lists! Peace of mind :) Yay for that!

What do you have on your Kitchen to do list? Share with us and make me feel not so alone!

Magical Monday Dream Braindump: Wishlist

Wishlist

Hope you had a happy Easter Monday! I just learned that this is not a public holiday in many places including the US…I certainly enjoyed a 4-day weekend (totally not rubbing it in or anything…ahhhhh, 4 days…..).

So this is coming out on Tuesday instead during this 4 day week!

This week why not dream braindump your….

Wishlist!

We all have those thing we want to have – lipsticks, gadgets, a new yoga mat, a book – but just can’t justify going out and getting them immediately.

Why not start a list of all those things and add to it when ideas come up. You’ll be such a happy camper the next time your partner/mum/friend asks you what you want for Christmas/your Birthday/just because you’re fabulous, and you can whip out your Wishlist rather than ummmmming and ahhhhing and just asking for socks!

This is also a great list to refer to when you’re working on a big goal and looking for something cool to reward yourself with when you reach that hard worked for place.

Take Action Now!

Use five minutes now to brainstorm or add to this list. Jot them away on a new list page or, if you have the Life Is Crafted List & Planning package, there is a dedicated list there!

On My Wishlist

My Wishlist currently includes a KeepCup, a Kindle, a yoga block, a camera that can video HD (the camera that shoots my current videos is an old camcorder that has to be connected to power to work as the battery is shot!).

What’s on your list? Share with us below!
