Habit Tracking

It’s really easy to start a bad habit, but very difficult to start a new one! Mainly because usually when a bad habit is formed, it wasn’t an intentional action. Bad habits are formed when we aren’t being intentional with our actions. Forming a new good habit can take some time. There are several studies showing it takes 21 days, 30 days, and some even say 90 days. Seems no one can really come up with a universal time frame. Which seems right, considering we are all different!

Tracking your new habit can be an excellent way to make sure you are continually working towards it and being consistent in forming your new habit. I say, track the new habit until you don’t have to think about it everyday! Need to drink more water everyday? Track it until it becomes a habit and you don’t have to intentionally make yourself drink more water.

I have create a simple habit tracking sheet to help you build up the new habits you want to form! It is a 30 day tracker that you can put up in your bedroom, on your bathroom mirror, or wherever you will see it most to remind yourself to keep working on that habit and checking it off when you have completed it for the day! You can print off as many as you need!

Daily Affirmations/Mantras

Positive self-talk is so important! Did you know, 90% of our daily thoughts are repeat thoughts? That means, if you tear yourself down and think negative things about yourself often, chances are you are thinking them everyday. We can sometimes be our own toughest critic.

Now, imagine if you changed those negative thoughts into positive thoughts? Wow, what a difference that would make! I’ve created a download of simple daily affirmations to choose from to help you get started with positive self-talk! I recommend putting this up somewhere you will see it first thing every morning and/or evening. Preferably by a mirror so you can actually say them out loud to yourself.

Once you’ve gotten used to talking to yourself in the mirror, you can create more personalized affirmations/mantras for yourself!



Social Media

Looking to learn more about using social media for your business? I have a FREE mini course teaching you how to evaluate where you are at and what steps you need to take to create more consistency, relevancy, and community!

The Full Focus Planner


The planner that changed my life. True story!

The Full Focus Planner by Michael Hyatt is perfect for tracking business tasks, goals, events, milestones, and more. It;s the first planner I have ever stuck to and actually used daily! Now, it does take some time to set up the quarterly planner, but it’s totally worth it! A friend of mine recommended it to me, and now I am recommending it to you!

Everything is set up in quarters, which if you are a business person, is quite handy! There is a section for goal tracking, daily tasks and notes, morning and evening rituals, weekly reviews, monthly calendars, and so much more. Go check it out and see if it’s a tool you could be using to move in the right direction with your business (and personal life).
