Time: 5 minutes each day
Materials: Monthly calendar, pens
If you know me, it’s no secret I’m a lover of ritual and habit. Something about predictable and recurring events makes me feel all cozy and happy and stable. One of my most recent daily rituals has been drawing a small picture each day in the box corresponding to the current day on my desk calendar. Because I’m at work, most of my drawings are of pens, keys, headphones and stacks of paper, which are perhaps a little dull individually, but look pretty neat come the last day of the month. I highly suggest making your calendar into something a little more exciting. Starting tomorrow, I’m going to change it up a little and write a haiku in every box. Because we all know there aren’t enough haikus in the world.
