Meditation Minis

Meditation MinisWe’ve both been working on seeking more peace and balance in our lives and have both explored meditation on and off.

One of the biggest challenges can be just finding the time to meditate, another is being able to stay focused for a long period of time. Fortunately, we’ve found these Chel Hamilton meditation minis come in lovely bite-sized pieces which are more manageable for beginners. There are topics suited to whatever the challenges the day brings from anxiety to decluttering (mentally and physically) to letting go of past mistakes.

Snappr Photo Analysis

Peta and I are always learning and growing (who isn’t?!) and we want to share our Top 3 Takeaways from this past week with you. Who knows, you may just discover something interesting for use in your own life!

It only takes 2 minutes to get a great analysis that evaluates you on criteria such as your face, composition, and editing.

Peta and I are always learning and growing (who isn’t?!) and we want to share our Top 3 Takeaways from this past week with you. Who knows, you may just discover something interesting for use in your own life!

Airtable

This might be the tool to organize many (if not all) your businesses operational needs! Everything from CRM to Editorial calendar tracking, event planning, product launches and more. Sue discovered this tool and has been testing it out in a non-profit as well as the for-profit environment. Think spreadsheet – but on steroids. It’s pretty special. You may just want to check it out for yourself.

Boss-Mom

Peta listened to a great discussion on the Boss-mom podcast on what social media scheduling tools work best for which situation. Some cool tools we plan to check out are Meet Edgar and Tailwind.

Refillable Laser Printer Cartridges

Peta investigated places to refill laser cartridges – apparently after buying the kit you still need a special tool to laser hole kit and resealable tape. Spoiler alert – it’s very difficult to find someone to refill it for you – at least in Vancouver for an HP Color LaserJet MFP M277dw. It’s making it very difficult to be environmentally responsible!

Automate Your Life

Podcast

Automate your life. You don’t have enough time. Enough time to pursue that hobby you’ve had on the back burner for a while. Enough time to get through that task list (the list that grows daily despite the items you manage to cross off.) Enough time to spend with your kids and loved ones because you’re working late to finalize that project or meet that milestone.

Automating aspects of your life can greatly improve emotional well-being and enhance personal productivity.
