Just taking a break from today’s work duties. Taking a break = blogger mode on, haha!
If you’ve been following my snaps (rainbowholic.me), you would know how I’ve become so (overly) attached to my hobonichi.
I think that this hobonichi activity has become my regular stress-reliever. Everyday, I respond to many emails and messages (mostly to answer clients’ inquiries / to disseminate tasks within my team) and I would easily get overwhelmed by everything happening all at the same time. I’ve realized that allowing myself to have a downtime (and just be myself, doodling my dreams on papers and designing the pages with washi tapes lol) is actually a good creative exercise. : ) You guys should also try it! Add more color to your day ~
It’s amazing how a simple work day like today (and mind you, it was stressful haha) became much more interesting with this simple form of leisure!
I bought some Gudetama stickers / washi tapes when I went to Sanrio Puroland before.. and I’m so happy that I finally get to use these for a personal project! 😀
Just a quick photospam update of what I’ve been up to these weeks~!
As of today, I have 15+ blog entries waiting to be fulfilled starting last month. As much as I’d want to blog so often every after significant day / adventure with a friend, I’m trying my best to focus on enjoying everything first (and ~be more present~) and then finally compiling all the documentation later in blog entry form. Recently, I’ve been enjoying “blogging manually” using my first hobonichi.
I got so addicted to documenting my day that my Day 8 turned out like this. :))
*career mode on!*
I’ve been soooo busy with all the online / web-related work that’s why this very hands-on activity is something that I find very relaxing / stress-relieving.
Reminds me of the time when we were required to write on our “Reading Journal” + my “Hobby Craft Club” days back in elementary.
Writing down my thoughts & exercising my creativity both make me grateful and productive at the same time.
I keep a lot of planners / diaries / notebooks with me so I could write on my personal dreams (as a form of visualization / my way of “calling the universe”) and also for me to practice the self-imposed regular “gratitude exercises” I’ve promised myself to do since years ago. I have this tendency to be soooo overwhelmed about things so listing down things (no matter how important or unimportant these are) has greatly helped me keep sane and positive.
From dancing along to nursery rhymes to being begrudgingly dragged by my family to the karaoke machine, and after years of being a closet singer-songwriter in high school… I’m finally ready to release my first (self + friends-produced) record!
