Make Over Your Evenings: Day 5

May 12, 2016

I confess:  I have fallen off the Make Over Your Evening bandwagon.  True, Just a little fall. But a fall. Lesson 4 was SO hard for me.  I set the goal to turn off social media at night, but embarrassingly enough, that is a HUGE challenge for me.  I am still working on it.  And even with my time off between lesson 4 and lesson 5, I am still not perfect at this goal yet.  But I’m jumping back up and heading in the right direction.  Starting with reading and working through lesson 5 last night. Besides, I’ve decided I really DO need this course – the last couple days have been crazy!  I need to really spend some time getting my evenings in order!

I loved this lesson – so it was a good one to jump back in with.  I am a HUGE list maker. Crystal talks bout “brain dumping” at the end of each day.  She writes down what she needs to do on a google calendar.  I go almost everywhere with a notebook.  I always have a notebook with me and have constant lists going at all times.  I have a notebook I keep in my purse and notebook I keep on the kitchen counter.  I am not in the habit of “brain dumping” or making a list every night for the day before, I tend do make my list first thing in the day.  But I can see where writing this down in the night would be helpful. I think I would sleep better if I knew I had already made the list and got rid of those items from my head.

This year I’ve been trying to convert from a paper calendar to using our phones and google calendar.  It’s a challenge.  I do like that it is everywhere with me, but I don’t always see the visual reminder everyday, which is one big reason that I love paper calendars. But I think moving towards digital will be a good move for me and my family. With 5 kids we are starting to really need one calendar everyone can access and see from anywhere. I obviously haven’t converted my to-do list yet since I just admitted to carrying a notebook with me at all times.  🙂  I have downloaded Evernote to my phone and played around with it every once in a while, but not ever found anything that has really stuck with me yet.

Do you like to keep to-do lists?  Do you write them every day?  When?  Do you prefer paper or digital?
