Day 77: Make a Shiny New Schedule

Posted by J. Rose Allister at 6:00 AM 0 comments

Sundays focus on enrichment for the mind, alternating between right brain creativity, left brain logic/education, and general acts of personal positivity.

Important Note: Today's theme is something I had to take to heart myself after feeling overwhelmed lately. I realized some things had to be put aside, and I'm sad to say this blog is one of them. I will not be posting new daily challenges for the foreseeable future, but I encourage you to keep going with positivity! This blog will still be here, with a year plus 77 days' worth of challenges. Pick a post at random and follow it each day.

Today's Positivity activity:  Get organized with a new planner*/daily schedule.

One thing that's easy to get away from when you've been super busy, feeling depressed/overwhelmed, or both is your daily schedule. Sometimes, the routine just feels too bogged down, and we give up. Making a fresh start can give a boost--and motivation to get more of the things done that make one feel accomplished at the end of the day.

*I highly recommend Passion Planner for this. You can download loose pages for free and put them in a notebook, or purchase one already bound.

For your journaling today: Write down "left brain" and the today's theme. Did you make a new schedule? What tools did you use--a calendar? Organizer? Note your thoughts. You can be as detailed as you wish, or you can simply jot one or two sentences about it.

Day 74: Walk 10,000 Steps

Posted by J. Rose Allister at 6:00 AM 0 comments
Thursdays are all about health and nutrition positivity!
Today's Positivity activity: Walk 10,000 steps
Today's challenge is to get up and walk! Exercise is great for health and positivity. A simple pedometer, phone app, or wrist device can help keep track of activity.

Does 10,000 steps sound too daunting? Have no device to monitor progress? Set a smaller goal for yourself--say 5,000 steps or 30 minutes. (And as with any exercise program, it's a good idea to check with your doctor when altering your activity level.)


For your journaling today: Record today's health theme. Did you get your steps in? Note your thoughts about how it went. You can be as detailed as you wish, or you can simply jot one or two sentences about it.

Day 73: Clean Out Your Purse

Posted by J. Rose Allister at 6:00 AM 0 comments

Wednesdays are all about household positivity! Cleaning, clearing, organizing, and embellishing...your living space needs a boost of TLC too!

Today's Positivity activity: Clean out your purse. (Or alternately, the car/glove compartment, your laptop case, backpack, or briefcase)

Clutter in the purse/car is one of those facts of life, like death and taxes. Today, clean out and organize that catchall. 

For your journaling today: Write down today's challenge. Did you attempt and complete the activity? Note your thoughts about how it went--or not. You can be as detailed as you wish, or you can simply jot one or two sentences about it.

Day 72: Enjoy Soothing Tibetan Singing Bowls

Posted by J. Rose Allister at 6:00 AM 0 comments

Tuesdays are all about ambiance, or boosting positivity by adding something nice to your environment at home and/or at work.

Today's Positivity activity: Today's ambiance features 6 hours of  tibetan singing bowls coupled with some peaceful imagery. Great to pop up on the big screen in the living room or, as I like to do, on the tablet at work.

For your journaling today: Record the name or theme of today's ambiance. Were you able to include this in your day? Note your thoughts about how it went. You can be as detailed as you wish, or you can simply jot one or two sentences about it.
