Welcome to the first post in the June Planner Choices Blog Series here at Createyou86. My posts have been a little sparse, and that is because i am just finishing up school classes for my CDA (Child Development Associate). I have been working on it since November 2016, and it has been taking up a lot of time, but i am excited to keep blogging through it. This series conveniently (or maybe not?...) will be all about planner choices. The choices that we make relating to planning can make or break a planning system for us. It can also make or break us when it comes to being consistent in our planning routines, and planning in general. This first post is about distractions in planning. Do you ever find yourself planning, and all of a sudden............................SQUIRREL? I do! So i wanted to let you know some of my top distractions when it comes to planning anything. Keep reading to find out.
Having classical music playing in the background at lectures or while studying create a heightened emotional state that makes you absorb information better. (2014)
4. Having planning related items on my desk while planning such as my box of stickers, or other planners can be very distracting. I need only the planner that i specifically need to work with, or my brain will wander to the other planner which has no significance, or start to think......"OHHHH stickers!"
5. The last thing that causes me distraction is Television. If i am planning i can't even be in the same room as a television. I am also one of those people who when i sleep need to be in complete darkness, not be touched, and have a decent amount of blanket. I watch more Youtube than Television, but if i decide to sit downstairs instead of in my office i can't be near the Television!
I hope that you have enjoyed the first post of this series!
