What is more full of promise than turning a filled calendar page (maybe with some scribbles and coffee stains) to a FRESH, EMPTY one? The start of not only a new year but a new decade. This January, don’t think of a calendar as just small squares to hold your many obligations – appointments, birthdays, soccer games – but as pages of big possibilities!
To celebrate our 15 years in business this February (woohoo!), we want to give you this 2020 Downloadable Interactive Calendar, complete with inspirational quotes and coloring pages! We hope you’ll get your children involved and come up with both individual and family goals for the entire year. In addition to daily commitments, plan out fun activities each month like visiting a hands-on, science museum, holding a crafting day, volunteering at your local food pantry, and pretending to be a tourist in your own city. Make a FREE SQUARE like on a bingo card and spontaneously decide what it will be!
This planner is designed to encourage you to let go of what didn’t work in 2019 and add in what fills you with excitement. If you ended the year feeling burned out, make time for yourself. Try a new yoga class, fill a jar with date night ideas and reconnect with friends. If your kids have schedules that rival that of a Fortune 500 CEO, do a technology-free Friday night where they get to cook dinner (Chopped competition-style). Take a break from a hectic day by filling in the coloring pages – your daily 10 minutes of zen!
When it comes to setting New Year’s resolutions and goals, our natural reaction is to feel pressure and a ‘why even try’ mindset. Statistics don’t help either – with an average fail rate of 80%. But, what if we focused less on the outcome and more on the journey? Let’s say you want to carve out more time to read in 2020. Instead of setting a numeric goal, like 20 books, set intentions on how you can read more. You can listen to audiobooks on your commute; join or start a book club so you have support; and keep magazine articles in your bag so you can read them while you’re waiting in carpool or the dentist’s office!
Use your 2020 Downloadable Interactive Calendar to record your successes (“finished Ann Patchett book, 4 stars”). This approach allows you to be present and enjoy the process. According to Tiny Buddha, a standard goal becomes a compass goal when you are more focused on what you will learn about yourself along the way than the end result.
Our wish for you is to use this calendar not only to organize your life but to visualize the life of your dreams!
Happy New Year!
