Hey there!smiley How are your New Year's resolutions? Are you still pursuing your goals? The majority of people forget about them in a couple months. One of the reasons for that is unrealistic and unsustainable goals. Today we will teach you the SMART(ER) planning methodology to make sure you achieve all your goals!

 
As you may already have guessed, SMART(ER) is an acronym. It stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely.  (ER) is for evaluating your goals and rewarding yourself for achievements.
 
So, your goals should be:
Specific: Clear and well defined. Let's say, you want to be healthier. What do you actually mean? Eating healthy? Exercising frequently? Maybe you want to gain some muscle or lose a bit of fat? Or do you want to focus on your mental health instead? Define your goal. If you know, what you really want, you'll find ways to achieve it.
 
Measurable: with a specific criteria to measure your progress easily. For instance, you want to improve your diet and eat more fruits and vegetables. Then count how much fruit and veg you eat daily. Try to have a fruit or a vegetable with every meal. If you try to improve your mental health, use a mood tracking app. If you want to read more, count books and pages.
 
Achievable: something attainable. A goal should be something you can get if you work on it. For example, "I want to lose 10 pounds" or "I want to read 12 books this year" are good goals. "I want my body to look like Michelle Lewin's" or "I want to be smart like my cousin" are bad ones. You are a unique person, with yours weaknesses, strengths, lifestyle and genes. Don't try to be someone's clone, aim for being a better version of yourself.
 
Realistic: Something within your reach, relevant to your lifestyle and background. And most importantly, something that will not damage your physical or mental health, or affect your career or social life. Don't be harsh on yourself and take your time. Give up on extreme diets, hardcore training routines or studying from down till dusk.
 
Timely: Your goal should have a clear timeline. Let's say, you want to be able to do proper pushups in two months or to learn ukulele in a year.
 
Evaluating your goals is also important. Sometimes you just grow up from your previous mindset and don't need that achievement anymore. Sometimes life interferes with your plans. Sometimes you need to rethink and change them, as the goal you set before turned out to be too hard or too easy for you. Maybe you need another strategy. Reflect on your previous goals instead of considering them failed straightaway.
 
Reward yourself for reaching milestones. If you did well, give yourself a present: meet your friends, go somewhere with your family, watch a new TV series, buy yourself a new dress, etc.
 
When you set a SMART(ER) goal think of realistic and sustainable ways to achieve it and to measure your progress. Start with small steps. Try to figure things out. For example, you are a busy mum, but you aim to exercise more. Try home workouts, walking instead of driving, hiking with your family, playing active games and so on. Set your daily norm of active movement, like 40 minutes a day, and try to follow it. Count the successful days. And don't forget to reward yourself!
 
Our website has a Post Editor where you can create a digital planner or a timetable for yourself. And to make planning and organizing things more fun, some of our customers also use scrap kits to decorate their digital or physical notebooks, planners and diaries.

Happy upcoming St. Patty's Day!

 

Hey there!smiley March the 17th is coming soon, so we decided to tell you about St. Patrick's Day.
Let's start with Patrick, because people who celebrate his day nowadays know little of him. The most important source of information about him is a book that he wrote himself, "Confession". His life, like that of many Christian saints, was difficult and sometimes tragic, but righteous.
 
He was born in Britain to a relatively wealthy family. However, he did not receive a good education, as "Confession" was written in bad Latin, and he called himself illiterate. At the age of 16, he was kidnapped by robbers from his parents' house and taken to Ireland, where he was tending sheep. During his captivity, he came to believe in God under the influence of other Christian slaves from Britain.
 
Then he managed to escape from his captors and go by ship to Britain, where on the way he was again attacked by robbers and taken prisoner for 60 days, but he was able to escape once more. The way Saint Patrick describes this period of his life is very similar to the wanderings of Moses. At home, he received the priesthood and began to climb the ladder of the church hierarchy.
 
He returned to Ireland already as a bishop. It is not known why he made such a decision – the sources of that time say that he either saw an angel who gave him a letter from the people of Ireland, or began to hear their voices. At first, St. Patrick's flock were slaves, women and robbers, but then he probably enlisted the support of local rulers and nobility, and began to massively convert the Irish to Christianity.
 
According to various testimonies, he built 300-600 churches and baptized more than 12 thousand people. He is revered as the apostle of Ireland and its chief patron saint. The place and circumstances of his death are not known, but we know the date – March 17th. On this day they celebrate his feast.
 
The Irish loved St. Patrick a lot, so his figure was surrounded by myths and legends, and then integrated into local folklore along with leprechauns and fairies. For the Irish diaspora, St. Patrick was a symbol of the homeland, so until recently, his day was celebrated more outside of Ireland than in it.
 
P.S. Funny enough, but St. Patrick has nothing to do with beer, the drinking of which has become a crucial part of his holiday. He neither brewed it nor drank it. The real patron saint of brewing and hop picking is Arnold of Soissons.
 
What to do on St. Patrick's Day?
  • If you have a financial ability to travel, it's a good idea to visit Dublin these days to watch the celebrations and visit the famous St. Patrick's Cathedral.
  • Visiting the festivals. It is not necessary to travel far. Find out what events are planned in your city these days. Perhaps the local Irish community is preparing a holiday program.
  • Go to an Irish pub for traditional food and a beer, or set the table at home. Food can be cooked by yourself or ordered from a delivery service. Throw a party for friends or prepare a small family feast.
  • Read books about Irish folklore or watch movies and cartoons.
  • Set up a treasure hunt. Going into the woods in search of leprechaun gold is a dangerous thing to do, but you and your family can hide gifts for each other in the house or in the city, and draw a map of how to get to them.
  • Decorate your home or make holiday cards.
  • Play board games, such as Monopoly.
  • Psp tagging is also a good thing. See what psp tubes and scrap kits for St. Patrick's Day our store offers.
