My new rule: No more talking about #productivityporn! No more! Cut it out! No more talk about pomodoros, to-do apps, paper planners, just get on with the doing.

I don’t know how long this has been going on, or when it will stop, but I have really noticed lately that I am unequivocally happy. This keeps coming to my attention when I’m around strangers, especially staff in shops: I’ll be ordering a milkshake, and I’ll have the biggest smile on my face, and I’ll say something to the shop-person and feel like I really care about them and their day and their world… and if anything goes wrong, it washes off straight away.
I’ve decided to do a 30-day meditation challenge, where I swap out my morning pages for 20 minutes of meditation. Morning pages clears my mind and helps me to get (and feel) really organised (and sometimes very inspired), so I’ll be interested to see how meditation differs. I can’t fit both into my day at the moment.
Just a quickie – here are some little things I’ve bought over the past year that I’ve really liked.
1. Watercolor Flowers iPhone Case
Bought this from Etsy, love it, so cheerful and I like the way the iPhone shows through.
I wanted to do a shout-out to some friends who have wonderful skills as visual artists. I used to think if I worked hard at it, I could build skills as a visual artist too, but then I started teaching myself “how to draw” and realised I don’t find it enjoyable at all. But I’m very glad these people do.
