Tracking my Anxiety and Migraines

May is Mental Health Awareness month so what better time than now than to share how I track my anxiety. There are many different ways that people do it. For me, I’ve begun tracking it on pen and paper in myΒ planner. It’s been working thus far and I’ve been able to pinpoint when it happens and really monitor it as best I can.

Planning In My Ring Planner

Cheers to another blog post. I’ve finally figured out a schedule. I will have a planner related post to share with you all every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Of course I’ll have other post sprinkled in here and there, especially my Sound Off series. I hope you all stay tuned and if you have any particular requests, just leave a comment.

I previously shared a flip through of my ring planner and I wanted to share how I plan. This is not like my Happy Planner in which I had an overload of stickers. This is a bit more simple with decorative touches.

Hobby Lobby Clearance Haul | Over $30 in Savings

Hey there hey! I’m back with another Hobby Haul and I have 2 more hauls that I want to share that will be coming soon. I’ve been shopping a hell of a lot these past 2 months, but at least everything I purchased was on sale, right? I purchase what I know I will use. I’m the type of person to walk around with a cart/basket full of shiz before making a purchase. I also calculate and compare any clearance deals to the regular price to see if it’s truly bang for my buck. Anywho, enough rambling. Let’s get into the haul with the full price breakdown.

Plan With Me: B6 Traveler’s Notebook

November already? I wanted to share a spread of how I’m currently planning. I’m using a B6 traveler’s notebook filled with 3 mini journals (lined/dot grid/grid) and other goodies. The one I use for weekly planning is a lined journal that can be found anywhere. With stickers, washi, and my handy dandy pens, I turned bland into grand (cheesy, I know).

Sunday Rant (V.4): Getting Organized

As I get ready to head out to my nephew’s birthday party I went out to Staples to pick up something that I’ve been eyeing that I came across through a post byΒ Play.Love.Laugh.Respect. I know I might be new to this M by Staples Arc System,Β but I absolutely love and knew it was something I would need. I recently just posted my Home Management Binder + Filing System post with my planner organization being a bonus in that post. Well, truth is, I wasn’t happy with my planner. I was making great use of it, but it wasn’t neat like I wanted it to be, color coded how it usually is, and I didn’t really like to take it out. Plus it was only being used for my blogging schedule, and I wanted to expand and what better way than with a customizable planner. There are plenty of people that can design their own. I came across a unique one here. Me on the other hand I found this M by Staples Arc System collection perfect and customizable enough for me to add what I want. Here’s what I purchased:

20140126-131055.jpg

I picked up the 8.5″x5.5″ customizable notebook system along with the 2014 weekly & monthly refill, the to do refill paper, and the poly tab dividers. I also needed a legal pad for meetings so I snagged one of those for $1 on my way to the checkout.

My planner before was from Target and although it was functional I just didn’t like it.

My new planner is much thicker than my other one, but I added more things to it. I did not use all the dividers, I only used 3 out of the 5. I divided mine in: ‘To Do,’ ‘Planner,’ and ‘Notes.’ I put the ‘To Do’ before the planner section just to keep track of the tasks at hand for the day. I love that this planner does offer extensions in stores and online in either 1″-1.5.” The other two things that I would like to add are the business card holders and the poly zip pockets. Check out everything about M by Staples Arc System here.

My new planner organization will consist of organizing by color for my events/appointments/meetings, birthdays, pay day, etc. I will also be sure to use my To-Do list on the regular. Also the notes will be for miscellaneous things I want to keep track of such as confirmation numbers from bills that are paid. I did not use all of the paper because I did not need to so I have plenty of refills for the time being and will be adding those to my stationary stash.

My main dislike about this planner was that the stickers for dividers keep raising up. If you would like a cuter design check out the Martha Stewart Collection: Discbound Notebooks.

Yes I will be tossing my old planner and yes I will be spending my day organizing my new one.

As for what’s coming up this week stay tuned for my Grammy Review, the latest music, and all things football leading up to Super Bowl Sunday next week 2.1.14.

Happy Sunday Everyone!!!
