This whole concept feels like a really shitty pregnancy update. But it’s okay because I’m not pregnant and I get to update you on my stationery habits.
Having used my Happiness Planner for 4 months now (check the blog post here talking all about when I got it!), I’ve got a good feel of what the book is like now.
I’ve been through phases of remembering to fill it in then weeks at a time where I just didn’t fill it in because I forgot or I was busy or I was tired. I kept getting really frustrated because considering how expensive it was and how I want to keep it as a memory so I want to have decent memories to relive!
But I’ve now put it in my boyfriend’s bedroom so I can fill it in every night before we go to sleep. So I’ve been remembering to fill it in every night for a few weeks and it’s making me happy and more organised!
I find it really useful – it makes me focus on something in particular and it makes me think about the six things I want to get done the next day, six things is such an achievable number, especially when I put ‘go to uni’ on that list.
It also pushes me to find something positive in every day, even if a day is majoritively negative it makes me find something happy that I did in each day, even if it was that I had a long cuddle with my boyfriend or I enjoyed the walk to uni.
It also makes me hyper aware of when I’ve had bad days, it really makes me realise when I struggle to find something that’s made me happy and if I’m going through a down period, which is both a good and a bad thing because I can monitor my mood more but it can be even more depressing to notice these trends.
But primarily, The Happiness Planner makes me feel way more organised which in turn makes me feel so much happier!
I’m working on being happy and cutting the people and things that make me sad out of my life and the planner is helping me to do this a lot and I can’t wait for the next eight months of using it.
