30 Days of Creativity: making a list of ideas (Day 2)

I can already tell this is going to start reaaaaallly stretching me pretty soon. I had a tough time figuring out what to do for today’s creative activity because *surprise surprise* I over-analyzed it.  So many options or zero options?  It’s tough for my brain to decide. I finally checked out the list of suggestions from the article and settled on making a list of ideas. 

I focused on how I can be more effective with my time and how I would use that time. The gist of it is I need to limit my screen time and be more planful when it comes to routine needs like grocery shopping and about how I approach my work day. Nothing too earth shattering there but the hard part is implementing it. Basically what someone needs to do is create an app that only lets me on certain applications (ahem, Facebook) at certain times of the day that I define. Since that doesn’t seem to be an option, I am going to start by leaving my phone 10-15 feet from my bed so I have to get out bed when my alarm goes off and I’m going to get a regular meal-planning and grocery ordering cadence going that isn’t on a weekend day. 

As for how I would spend my time, it comes down to hanging out with my kids (and I now have a list of a bunch of specific activities for next time we are wondering what to do on a Saturday), spending time with my husband doing date nights and allocating time for us to brainstorm our dreams (we are cheesy like that), and volunteering. I love to volunteer and used to do it fairly regularly. Getting married and having kids stopped that so I’d like to get back to it. 
I’d be curious to know how others are efficient with their time!
