Re: [CHAT] I'm out of time, all the time!

@lokifish I also think that's really important... using visual reminders. Like if i need to remind myself to take something tomorrow I will put it on top of my wallet, or I will put a note on top of my wallet.

I also heard somewhere that when you do something for 21 days, it will become a habit. I don't know how true it is but I always think, if I do this for just 3 weeks it will become easier!

Re: [CHAT] I'm out of time, all the time!

@Randomness cool I like the idea of having inspiring quotes there as well! Sometimes I just look at what I have to do and go 'ugh' haha. Quotes would really help get the motivation going!

 

What helps you to keep using time-management devices such as diaries, apps or calendars?

I guess knowing that everything is already on the calendar on my phone, I just keep adding tasks to it so that it's all in one place. It's accessible because I pretty much bring my phone everywhere. And the wall planner has been helpful for me with seeing when things are due and how much time until then, so I keep using it. And it's nice and colourful

@Chloee I've heard the 21 days thing too. I definitely think it becomes easier to do things once they're a habit - and it doesn't take that long to create one Smiley Happy

I admire the time that probably took to make 'colourful' colourful and it's a great idea too!

@cupcakes_032 colour is the best! It makes everything seem so much more cheerful to do, and it's so easy to see what needs doing Smiley Very Happy (I'm definitely a visual learner)
