Self-Care Menu


Consider this your personal self-care directory.

Categorising these activities makes it easier for you to choose an activity based on your current needs and how much time you want to dedicate on any given day.

It also alleviates decision fatigue when you’re unsure of the best way to recharge in ten minutes.

Naturally, there will be activities that fall into all three categories. To avoid duplication, consider how each ritual makes you feel. What part of your wellbeing does the activity contribute to most? 

For example, yoga is celebrated for its many mind, body and spiritual benefits. However, the mental health benefits may be of greater significance to you, so you would add that to the mind section. 

Completing this exercise is a great way to reflect on what self-care means to you. It can help you feel more confident about integrating self-care activities into your daily life.

Start by brainstorming practical self-care rituals that you can complete in:

10 minutes or less: These are quick and simple activities that can be done anywhere, at any time.  

30 minutes or less: These activities require a little more time investment and may need to be pre-planned and scheduled into your day. Some of these activities can be done during your lunch break or form part of your morning ritual. 

60 minutes or more: These activities require the most time investment and generally need to be pre-planned and scheduled into your week. 


  • Include activities, rituals and routines that have yielded positive benefits in the past. Having a reliable set of habits and routines in your diary reduces decision fatigue, allowing you to focus on elevating your mood and overall wellbeing.

  • Use the Notes section of the Self-Care Menu to list resources, such as your go-to YouTube channel for workouts, or your favourite apps for guided meditation. This is your “bookmark” for listing online and offline resources. Alternatively, you can use the Notes section to list quotes, mantras and affirmations that resonate with you—words of wisdom you can lean on throughout the year. 

  • Leave room for activities that resonate with you later in the year. You don’t need to fill it all in at once. You can slowly add to it over time, based on your experiences throughout the year. 

  • Ask your partner or your loved ones if they can recall specific self-care activities that put you in a more relaxed or energised state. Sometimes, we just need a little reminder of what works. 



Bucket List


Use this space to map out the adventures, experiences and activities you want to try in 2022. 

Consider the following categories: travel, adventure, education, entertainment, contribution, creativity, health, family and relationships. 

A traditional bucket list typically features once in a lifetime, travel-related experiences. However, limiting yourself to a "traditional" bucket list in this current climate isn't ideal.

Expand your definition to include things you've always wanted to try at home, like pottery, or things you've always wanted to do but never had time for, like learning how to drive a manual car or Marie Kondo-ing your house. 

Keep it fun, satisfying and realistic. 

There are two ways to use the date column.

You can use it to mark in tentative dates or actual dates of completion. The former gives you a timeline to work towards. The latter provides a record of your bucket list achievements. 


  • Keep it realistic by assessing the time and financial investment involved.

  • Personalise your list and keep it relevant to your interests, goals and values.

  • Include a combination of small, medium and large bucket list experiences and adventures.

  • Share your list with others to keep you socially accountable.

  • Think about whether you want to fly solo or do it with someone else.



Mission Statement


Use this space in your planner to map out your goals for 2022 and beyond.  

1. Review and define

Decide what you really want to achieve in 2022. Start by reviewing the following areas of your life: health, personal growth, career, family, relationships.

Then, use the Mission Statement section to write down your goals and intentions for the year ahead. A study has shown that you are 42% more likely to achieve your goals simply by writing it down. 

Tip: set SMART goals—Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely.


a) Run the Melbourne Marathon in October 2022

b) Buy our first home in Melbourne by December 2022

c) Launch an online store selling candles by 30 June 2022


2. Dig deeper

Think about why you want to pursue each goal. Dig deep to uncover your true motivations. When in doubt, you can flip back to this section of your diary and remember why you started.

Tip: revisit this list and add to it throughout the year. There might be “reasons” that you haven’t yet thought about or consciously admitted. 


a) Run the Melbourne Marathon in October 2022

"It gives me more incentive to be active throughout the week. I really want to improve my fitness and stamina. I want to make new friends in the neighbourhood and this will be the perfect opportunity to join local running groups. I want to raise awareness for mental health. My confidence will improve when I start to see progress. That amazing feeling of accomplishment I’ll feel when I cross the finish line. A sense of pride."

b) Buy our first home in Melbourne by December 2022

"It’s something we own. Every payment is going towards our mortgage, not someone else’s. We’ll have the freedom to renovate and decorate as we please. More stability. We have enough savings to buy our first home, so it makes financial sense. We want to settle down and start a family. We also want to get a dog, but our current rental is too small for one."

c) Launch an online store selling candles by 30 June 2022

"I love making candles. It brings me joy. It's been a dream of mine for a while now. I want to work for myself. There's a gap in the market for these type of candles. I'm only working a few days a week so I have time to do this. I've always wanted to start a business before having kids." 


3. Debunk your fears

Identify the fears that are causing some level of self-doubt. Also consider the fears that have emerged in the past.

The “worst case scenario” exercise allows you to transform your fear of the unknown into something clearly defined and manageable. Once you rationally analyse these scenarios, it becomes clear that there are many things you can do to prevent or repair the potential damage. It allows you to also see other viable pathways to your goal. 

Taking the time to evaluate the cost of inaction can be a powerful source of motivation. It can reveal the emotional, physical and financial impact of abandoning your mission. 

Tip: journal about it and talk to your inner circle as they may be able to lend a different perspective.  


a) Run the Melbourne Marathon in October 2022

Worst case scenarios: knee/ankle injury

Practical steps to prevent these outcomes: invest in the best runners on the market, stretch before and after runs, pace myself and listen to my body—if there are any pains/minor injuries, get it treated immediately. 

Practical steps to repair the damage: see the required specialists, rehab. I’ve also got health insurance which will cover most of it. 

12 months from now if I decide to abandon this mission: I'll be wondering if I'm capable of running the Melbourne Marathon. I'll have to wait another year to train and fulfil this goal. 

b) Buy our first home in Melbourne by December 2022

Worst case scenarios: losing my job and not being able to make mortgage repayments

Practical steps to prevent these outcomes: create an emergency savings fund—$x is transferred to this account every month for emergencies only, get mortgage insurance, ensure my resume/LinkedIn is up to date, upskill to improve employability, proactively ask my managers for feedback so that I can continuously improve and be seen as an asset to the company. 

Practical steps to repair the damage: use my emergency savings fund or mortgage insurance while I search for another job. Apply for jobs via LinkedIn/Seek. Freelance while I search for a full time job. I’ve already made several connections in the industry which I can leverage.

12 months from now if I decide to abandon this mission: We'll still be renting with no space for a dog or a nursery. $22.8k of our savings will have gone towards rent. 

c) Launch an online store selling candles by 30 June 2022

Worst case scenarios: losing my financial investment ($2k) and not selling any candles would be embarrassing!

Practical steps to prevent these outcomes: Budgeting and staying mindful of your expenses, researching cost-effective marketing strategies, asking for help, joining business groups to seek advice.

Practical steps to repair the damage: pick up more shifts to build up my savings again. Sell leftover stock at cost just to recoup some of my investment.

12 months from now if I decide to abandon this mission: I'll probably see a dozen other candle brands pop up and regret not starting. 


4. Break it down

Determine the primary steps you need to take in order to complete your mission. This can be relatively broad steps or more specific to-dos. Setting realistic target dates will also help you prioritise and focus on what is most important, allowing you to better manage your time throughout the year. 

Tip: use the Mission in Progress section located on each Pre-Week Planner to break down the larger steps into smaller tasks you can complete each week.  

a) Run the Melbourne Marathon in October 2022

The first few steps might include the following:

Register for the marathon

Research beginners training plan

Research best foods to eat before, during and after running

Invest in proper running gear

b) Buy our first home in Melbourne by December 2022

The first few steps might include the following:

Speak to our accountant and mortgage broker

Figure out potential suburbs 

Figure out how much we can borrow

Determine budget

Create savings plan

c) Launch an online store selling candles by 30 June 2022

The first few steps might include the following:

Decide on brand name

Purchase domain name

Design logo

Design packaging

Source suppliers for packaging

Figure out costs + profit margin


5. Set Milestones

Set realistic milestones. This allows you to break down your mission into smaller goals. Reaching each milestone is an indication of significant progress which should be acknowledged and celebrated. It builds confidence and bridges the gap between where you are now and the end goal. 

Tip: use your Curation sticker set to mark your progress in your weekly spread.

a) Run the Melbourne Marathon in October 2022 

Milestone #1 Running 10km 

Milestone #2 Running 20km 

Milestone #3 Running 30km 

Milestone #4 Completing the Melbourne Marathon 

b) Buy our first home in Melbourne by December 2022 

Milestone #1 Have savings for a deposit 

Milestone #2 Pre-approval

Milestone #3 Bidding at our first auction

Milestone #4 Putting the sold sticker on

6. Celebrate your achievement

This is space for you to write down how you want to celebrate accomplishing your mission! Maybe it’s going out for dinner at your favourite restaurant, maybe it’s treating yourself to a spa day. Maybe it’s bigger, like taking a holiday. You might also choose to include rewards for arriving at each milestone. 

Lastly, we’ve included a progress bar because having a visual display of your progress can be highly motivating. Even the act of shading in the progress bar will be so rewarding and satisfying! 

Bonus Tips:

  • Seek out people who have already done what you want to do and learn from them.

  • Stay open minded and flexible in your approach. Be prepared to modify and adapt your plan of action. Your mission may change as you grow and that’s okay. 



Habit Curator


Use this space to workshop your habits and establish a game plan for building habits that stick. 


1. Review and define 

Define the habit you want to build. Consider the duration of the habit and what days your habit applies to. Is it a daily habit or are you just doing it on Mondays and Thursdays? Be specific in your definition. 

You may also choose to include rules like holiday and sick day exceptions.

Tip: Make a plan for exactly when and where you will complete your new habit to alleviate decision fatigue. This formula can be helpful: [habit] at [time] in [location].


a) Meditate daily for 10 minutes at 7am in my bedroom

b) Run 5km at 7am around Albert Park 3 times a week

c) Practise 1 hour of yoga 3 times a week at Ihana Yoga 


2. Dig deeper

Elaborate on why each habit is important to you and why it deserves your time and energy. Be 100% honest. This list is just for you. The reasons listed will help keep you motivated and determined.

Tip: Educate yourself on the short and long-term benefits and consider the negative consequences of not adopting this habit. You can also revisit this list and add to it throughout the year. 


a) Meditate daily for 10 minutes at 7am in my bedroom
This will be my daily reminder to slow down and check in with my mind and body. This will help me listen to my body and my needs. If I don’t build this habit, I will continue feeling stressed, tense and unable to tune into the needs of my body. 

b) Run 5km at 7am around Albert Park 3 times a week
Running helps me release any pent up energy and emotion. It gives me clarity, perspective and focus. I always feel energised afterwards. Running will also increase my stamina and strengthen my muscles over time. 

c) Practise 1 hour of yoga 3 times a week at Ihana Yoga
Yoga is medicine for my mind, body and spirit. It strengthens my muscles, increases my flexibility, alleviates my back pain and helps me stay present for a whole hour. It also calms me down and gives me a sense of peace. 


3. Identify your cues

Cues are internal or external prompts that the brain strongly associates with a particular habit, like an object, pre-existing routine, specific time, location, emotional state or another person. What are some cues you can put in place to remind you to take action? Can you set up automatic reminders or leave certain objects around to remind you. 

Tip: choose cues that are specific, consistent, automatic and unavoidable. Your cues need to be there on the days that you intend of completing your habit. 

a) Meditate daily for 10 minutes at 7am in my bedroom
Cue: recurring alarm that goes off at 7am

b) Run 5km at 7am around Albert Park 3 times a week
Cues: opening my diary every day and seeing “5km run” listed on the habit tracker, recurring alarm at 7am that says “how many runs have you done this week?” 

c) Practise 1 hour of yoga 3 times a week at Ihana Yoga
Cues: opening my diary every day and seeing “yoga” listed on the habit tracker, yoga mat by the door


4. Break it down

Think about the steps required to complete your habit on any given day. How can you simplify or minimise the number of steps involved?

Tip: eliminate “in the moment” decision making by making decisions ahead of time

a) Meditate daily for 10 minutes at 7am in my bedroom

Steps: grab phone > search for app > open app > choose meditation > press play > meditate 

You can eliminate “searching for app” by positioning it on the front screen and you can also choose your meditation in advance if you want to keep this habit as streamlined as possible. 

b) Run 5km at 7am around Albert Park 3 times a week

Steps: search for activewear in wardrobe > change into running gear > put runners on > grab headphones > choose song/playlist > start running

You can eliminate “searching for activewear in wardrobe” by putting it out the night before. You can also make sure your headphones are in a highly accessible location (by the front door perhaps) so you’re not searching for them. You can also create a running playlist in advance to eliminate “in the moment” decision making. 

c) Practise 1 hour of yoga 3 times a week at Ihana Yoga

Steps: Search for activewear in wardrobe > Get dressed > Fill up drink bottle > Grab mat from study > Put shoes on > Drive to yoga (10 minutes) > Park car > Walk to studio > Practise yoga

You can eliminate “searching for activewear in wardrobe” by putting it out the night before. You can keep your yoga mat by the front door so it is highly accessible or you could keep it at the yoga studio for extra convenience. 


5. Choose your reward

What will be your immediate reward for completing your habit on any given day? Think about all the everyday activities that you actually enjoy and which ones you could repurpose into rewards to reinforce your habit. It might be jumping on social media or watching Netflix. 

Tip: when choosing rewards, make sure it’s consistent with the person you want to be. Completing your gym routine and rewarding yourself with a pack of chips and a can of coke might not be ideal if you’re striving to be the healthiest version of yourself. 

a) Meditate daily for 10 minutes at 7am in my bedroom
Reward: checking Instagram 

b) Run 5km at 7am around Albert Park 3 times a week
Reward: getting a coffee from my local cafe

c) Practise 1 hour of yoga 3 times a week at Ihana Yoga
Reward: indulging in a little healthy treat (like a bliss ball) from the cafe next door. 


Habit Prep

What actions do you need to take before you can effectively build this habit. This might include investing in certain tools, doing some research or purchasing a membership. Just make sure your preparation doesn’t turn into procrastination. 

a) Meditate daily for 10 minutes at 7am in my bedroom
Prep: research the best meditation apps, download/purchase subscription, set recurring alarm. 

b) Run 5km at 7am around Albert Park 3 times a week
Prep: buy a good pair of runners and create running playlist

c) Practise 1 hour of yoga 3 times a week at Ihana Yoga
Prep: research yoga studios, sign up for a membership, buy appropriate activewear for yoga

Lastly, use the Habit Tracker on each Weekly Spread to track and record your progress. 


  • Announce your intentions to family and friends to keep you accountable and enlist their support.

  • Start small. The idea is to make your habit so easy in the beginning that you can’t say no. 



Savings Curator 


Curation 2022 Savings Curator

The Savings Curator in the 2022 edition has been redesigned to help you spend and save more mindfully throughout the year.


1. Set yourself a savings goal for the year

Write down your primary reason (s) for saving. There's also space to set a deadline. A deadline will help you work backwards to map out a realistic savings plan.  

Here are some examples:

I want to save $10k by 30/6/2022 for a new car.

I want to save $20k by 31/12/2022 for a house deposit.


2. Brainstorm ways to save throughout the year

Brainstorm practical things you can do to increase your income and reduce your expenses. You can see here that we’ve carved out space for you to do that. You can list ideas and do some quick sums in the blank space to add up how much you could make. 

Some examples might be selling clothes on eBay, selling furniture you no longer use on Facebook marketplace, picking up more shifts, freelancing. In terms of reducing your expenses, you might cancel subscriptions you don’t use and place a limit on non-essential expenses.

When brainstorming ideas, stay realistic. For example, picking up more shifts might sound good in theory but just consider the roll-on effect before committing to each idea. You definitely don’t want to burn out or compromise your wellbeing in the process. 


3. Set monthly targets

If you turn to the next few pages, you’ll see that we’ve included income and expense trackers for January–December. Your monthly target and your reasons for saving may be the same each month but setting the intention and writing it down at the beginning of each month can encourage more mindful spending. You’re more inclined to think twice about certain expenses if your saving goal is top of mind.


4. Log your monthly income and expenses

Log your income and expenses as they occur each month. For larger expenses like car registrations and rent, you might like to log them immediately. For expenses like groceries and petrol and eating out, you might prefer to wait until the end of each month and then go through your statements to log those expenses. 

You might also like to categorise your expenses. For example, one category could be beauty and that could be getting your nails done, getting your hair done.


5. Calculate your monthly total

Calculate your monthly total by subtracting total monthly expenses from total monthly income. This is how much ($) you have saved this month. 

For example, if your total monthly expenses work out to be $3000 and your total monthly income is $5000, then you have saved $2000. 


6. Compare your monthly total and monthly target

Subtract your monthly savings goal from your actual savings. This will tell you if you have achieved, exceeded or fallen short of this month’s target. 

For example, you might have saved $2000 but your target was $2500. This means you are $500 short of your savings goal. In this scenario, you would log –500 at the bottom of your monthly tracker. 


7. Reflect and assess

Saving $2000 is still an awesome effort, but it’s worth reflecting on whether 

  1. your target was unrealistic or
  2. You could have increased your income and/or reduced certain expenses.
If you have fallen short of your monthly savings goal and you believe you could have increased your income and /or reduced certain expenses, turn to page 27. Use the prompts provided to brainstorm new ways to increase your income and/or reduce your expenses next month.

The prompts are a great exercise to kick off your savings plan but it’s also a great exercise to come back to when you find yourself falling short of your monthly savings goal. 

7. Track your progress

You might like to divide your annual goal by 10 so you can easily track and shade in your progress. The visual display of your progress will add an extra layer of motivation and keep you on track to achieving your 2022 savings goal. Highly recommend using a coloured pencil to shade in your progress bar. 

Curation 365 Savings Curator


Use the Savings Curator to provide an overview of your current financial situation and create a practical and realistic savings plan. 

1. Set yourself a target and deadline

A deadline will help you work backwards to map out a realistic savings plan.  


2. Assess your current financial activity 

Review your bank/credit card transactions and input your monthly income and expenses. 

Tip: Use a greylead pencil and categorise your expenses into categories so that you don’t end up using all the space for one expense category.


3. Calculate your monthly surplus

To calculate your monthly surplus, subtract your total monthly expenses from your total monthly income. This is how much ($) you have leftover without making any changes. 


4. Optimise your budget

Analyse your monthly expenditure and search for expenses you can realistically reduce or eliminate each month. For example, if your average monthly takeaway expense is $100 and you decide to reduce it to $70, you can add $70 in the Desired column next to Takeaway.


5. Calculate your desired monthly surplus

Once you add your revised expenses to the ‘desired’ column, calculate your desired monthly surplus. This is how much ($) you would have left over if you committed to the changes identified in step 4. 


6. Work out your game plan

List the actions you intend on taking to reach your desired monthly surplus. For example, bringing lunch to work instead of eating out may save you an average of $140 per month and cycling to work instead of catching an Uber may save you $160 per month. 


7. Commit to your savings plan

Decide how much ($) you are willing to contribute each month. 


8. Track your progress

Take note of your monthly deposits and visually track your progress using the progress bar provided. The act of shading in the progress bar can serve as a healthy source of motivation and help you stay on track with your goal, especially since the finish line is visible. If you are struggling to adhere to your desired budget, you may need to revise this accordingly. 

Tip: Set up scheduled transfers or reminders in Curation once you decide how much you are willing to contribute each month. 


Monthly Planner

Use the monthly planner to mark important dates, key events and monthly reminders. This provides you with a visual overview/birds eye view of what to expect in the coming months. 

Tip: use your Curation Sticker Set to make your monthly planner more meaningful at a glance. 


Pre-Week Planner*


*The Pre-Week Planner is a signature feature of Curation 2022 Diary. It is not included in Curation Mini. 

Use this space to reflect on the previous week and mentally prepare for the next seven days. It’s a great opportunity to identify your priorities and allocate your time strategically.


Gratitude Reflection*

End and start the week on a high note by writing down at least three things you’re grateful for or three wins from the last seven days. 

  1. Got some positive feedback from my manager

  2. Family time 

  3. Exercising every morning this week! 

*For Curation Mini users, this feature can be found on your weekly spread.  


Drawing Board

The drawing board is extra planning space. Use this additional space to scribble your thoughts, brainstorm ideas for a new project or sketch a weekly masterpiece.  Whenever you need a piece of paper, use the Drawing Board. 

Other ideas:

  • Weekly journal entry 

  • Shopping list

  • Meeting notes

  • Affirmations or favourite quotes

  • Weekly budget

  • Ideas that come up during the week
  • Poems

  • To-do list

  • Gifts I need to purchase

  • Pros and cons list

  • Sketches

  • Wishlists
  • Book, podcast or restaurant recommendations


    Your Cue

    Jump out of your comfort zone and try something new each week with Your Cue (your weekly challenge/mindfulness prompt). It may challenge your current routines, habits, rituals and way of thinking, but it’s an opportunity to grow, broaden your perspective and possibly add to your knowledge bank. 

    Tip: schedule it into your week and list the post-challenge benefits you are likely to experience. This can be your fuel for following through. You might also like to encourage your partner or a friend to do it with you for added accountability. 


    Mission in Progress

    Review the goals you’ve chosen to pursue this year. Are you on track? Do you need to modify your plan of action? 

    Refer to the steps you’ve listed under each mission and identify the sub-tasks that you can realistically tackle in the coming week. Write them down in this section. These are your priorities/goals for the week. 

    If you are not pursuing any goals at the time, you can use this section as a weekly priority list. Simply list your top 5 priorities for the week.


    • Consider the time investment required and schedule these tasks into your weekly spread to keep it top of mind.

    • Review your to-do list from the previous week to determine if there are any remaining tasks that still need to be ticked off. 

    • Prioritise tasks by asking yourself these 5 specific questions


    Weekly Menu or Food Diary

    Plan your meals in advance to save yourself time, money and mid-week tantrums. Planning your meals in advance can reduce daily decision fatigue and help you make more mindful food choices without the pressure of a grumbling belly. 

    The weekly menu provides adequate space to plan your breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks, but you might just choose to use it for planning dinners. 

    It’s also a good way of coming up with 7 meal ideas. It doesn’t mean you have to have what you planned for on Wednesday. It just means you have a good shortlist of meals to choose from. 

    If you don’t want to use it as a meal planner, you could use it as a food diary to log your food.


    • Turn this into a weekly ritual. For example, you could plan your meals every Sunday morning as you eat your breakfast or sip on a cup of tea.

    • Use your weekly meal plan to generate a shopping list. 

    • Consider using leftovers from dinner for lunch. 

    • Prepare a list of your favourite breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack ideas that you can use as a reference to avoid starting from scratch each week. You can create this list under the Notes section of Curation. 

    • Be aware of the preparation and cook time. Consider your daily agenda and choose your recipes accordingly. For example, if Tuesday is going to be particularly busy, try choosing a recipe that doesn’t require a long preparation and cook time. 



    Dot Grid* 

    *Curation A4 includes a full page dot grid on the left hand side of each Pre-Week Planner. 

    This is basically an extension of the Drawing Board. It’s even more space for planning and brainstorming each week.

    The dot grid strikes the perfect balance between structure and flexibility. The dots provide more structure than a blank space which means you can write more neatly but it also provides a framework for mind mapping, doodling and sketching concepts, so it can be customised according to your needs.

    One week you might use it for a journal entry, another week you might use it to brainstorm business ideas.  


    Weekly Spread


    Use the Weekly Spread to organise personal, family and social commitments, tasks, events and reminders. 


    • Use the left side to log social events, meetings and appointments, and the right side for your daily to-do list. 

    • Create custom headings above each column to complement your planning style. 

    • Use your Curation Sticker Set to log weekly commitments, events and milestones. These visual cues help make the weekly spreads in your diary more meaningful at a glance. 

    • Prioritise tasks by asking yourself these 5 specific questions


    Daily self-care planner 

    Strategically positioned at the very top of your to-do list, the heart symbol is your reminder to schedule in a daily self-care activity that focuses on nourishing your mind and body. 

    This feature is your prompt to check in with your body and honour your needs. 



    Reminders / notes 

    This space can be used for reminders, like paying your vehicle registration or picking up your dry cleaning. Alternatively, you can use this space for weekly mantras or motivational words of wisdom. 


    Habit tracker 

    The Habit Tracker provides a visual display of your progress and draws awareness to the habits that require a bit more attention. Checking off your habits is not only rewarding, it can be a daily source of motivation. It can also work as a "reminder" to follow through with your intentions. 

    It’s up to you how you want to “tick off” your habits. You could use a tick or shade in the circle to indicate that you’ve completed a habit.


    • Highlight the days that are relevant to your habits.

    • Assign each habit a number or letter so that you don’t need to rewrite your habits on each weekly spread. Alternatively, shorten the description, so “meditating for 10 minutes daily” is just “meditate” on your Habit Tracker. 


    Monthly Reflection 

    At the end of each month, you’ll find a link at the bottom of the weekly spread, directing you to five monthly reflection prompts. 

    A monthly reflection can help you develop more self awareness around the choices you’re making, how you’re spending your time, what’s working and what isn’t. What you uncover will help you plan and live more mindfully, in alignment with your values and intentions. 

    It’s a chance for you to:

    • Slow down, pause, reset 
    • Review your goals and habits
    • Review the lessons you’ve learned
    • Celebrate your progress
    • Check in with how you’re feeling
    • Modify your plans based on the above
    • Set new intentions
    • Identify priorities for the month ahead

    You can use your Pledge to Stay Well Journal, Wisdom Within Journal or a blank notebook to complete your monthly reflection. 


    This Week's Priorities*

    *This Week's Priorities replaces the Pre-Week Planner in Curation Mini. 

    This Week's Priorities can be used for prioritising and managing everyday tasks alongside long-term goals.

    It encourages you to proactively identify your top three priorities/most important tasks for the week, so that you can be more mindful with how you allocate your time each day.
