We wanted to remind you of two things with today's post: (1) Today is the official date for Michaels to set all the new sticker value packs and MINI Happy Planner® accessories in their store, and (2) even though this month can get stressful, taking care of ourselves should still be priority.
Design Team member Nicole Patterson (IG | blog) created a self-care accountability layout on a monthly spread in her MINI Happy Planner®. She wrote in something each day she could do for herself, and used stickers from a few of our brand new sticker value packs to keep motivated and inspired!
About this layout, Nicole writes:
"The holidays are such a wonderful time of year. Spending time with family and making memories is what the season is all about. However, sometimes the holidays can also be full of hustle and bustle. In the midst of all of that, it is important that we take time out for self-care. I wanted to document my self-care journey as a reminder to always take time out to care for me."
"I used one of my MINI Happy Planners® for this. On the monthly pages, I wrote down one thing that I can do every day toward self-care and every day I challenge myself to take time out to do that one thing just for me. As women, wives, and moms we are SO BUSY taking care of other people all the time. There is nothing wrong with taking just a few moments out of the day to do something for you. As I always say, self-care is self-love and you do a much better job taking care of everyone else when you have first taking care of yourself."
