Why You Need Multiple To-Do Lists


I love a good list. I love them so much I have them everywhere. Having multiple to-do lists means that I can keep my ideas in different places for different things. Important tasks, not so important but still need to be done and plans for the future. Why do lists work? Lists work because it helps tremendously to get the ideas out of your head. Once the items are out of your head, you don’t really need to keep remembering them because it’s on your list. Lists provide a simple structure for everyday things like general groceries you need to [...]

My 2020 Word of the Year


I did it in 2018 with great success. I did it again in 2019 with average success. And I'm doing it again in 2020. I've picked a word of the year. My 2020 word of the year is... Environment This year I want to focus on environment. And I've taken that to mean the physical environment of my house and the actual environment. I already know of a few ways I can improve this but I'd love to hear your suggestions. So far I have switched to more ethical and environmentally friendly versions of a few products. Ideally, I'd like to [...]

How one declutter challenge helped me get rid of 465 things


I don’t know about you, but I have tried so many decluttering challenges. Every man and their dog seems to have one.

But when I found this challenge I knew it was something I could achieve. This one decluttering challenged claimed it would help me get rid of at least 465 things in 30 days. I learned about this challenge through Shelley from Let’s Live and Learn’s Instagram account. Now, that’s a [...]

19 for 2019? Not Quite


So much for 19 for 2019. It was more like 14 in 2019 for me. Which isn't too bad really. But at the same time, I did pick relatively easy items, that were once-off type things. 19 for 2019 ○ Have a legal will drawn up - I have enquired about this. But I left it a bit late in the year for it to fit into the budget around the end of the year. It's certainly something that will get done in the first half of next year. ○ Transfer house ownership - We are still debating whether we [...]

The One Minute Rule


I first learned about the one minute rule while listening to the first episode of the Happier with Gretchen Rubin podcast. Since implementing the one minute rule into my life it turns out that I usually spend more time thinking about it than it takes to actually do it. The one minute rule If something will only take one minute to do, you should probably do it straight away. Put your shoes away when you take them off. If you have a task that can be done in less than a minute, do it without delay. If you don’t read [...]
