Coachella pics are coming...5/27/2014
Whew, it's been a busy month since I got back! I've finally had a chance to sort through all of my pics from the US and now I'm just waiting on my disposable camera to be developed. It's been my birthday month so lately I've been doing giveaways, getting to all my emails and working on a side project as well as getting ready for a crazy June that's going to be packed with posts. I've stopped going to every event because I found myself burning the candle at both ends which left me completely unproductive. The more you have on your plate, the less you actually get to do well. It's important to remind ourselves that we have to do things at our own speed and say 'no' to some things so we can say 'yes' the others. It was good to get away because I have a fresh perspective.
Something that keeps me organised is lists. I'm so obsessed with them! Every month I write a list of things I want to get done for work but I also include personal to-dos. I break things down into small steps so that I don't stress out or feel like I'm not sure where to start. I've tried doing this on my phone but I have to say, the old-fashioned way is a lot better. Phones are great for appointments and events but nothing beats a good old piece of paper and pen to cross off tasks. It's also really important to carve out personal time. For me a great way to switch off from work mode is to play a game on my phone or read something. I like to get away from my phone though because I even read on that so one of personal to-dos for June is a little sewing. It helps to put your head in a completely different space so that you feel like you're getting a real break.
Can't wait to post more! Gonna go work on the next one ;)
