1. How I Keep Track of My Writing Deadlines Using Trello

A couple of months ago I learned about  Trello as I looking for something to help me keep track of projects. The people commenting on the Facebook post gave suggestions on how they were using it.

Then I stumbled on this article. I found it very helpful. The author, Lauren Layne, not only described the lists, or columns, but the cards, or index cards. She made Trello seem easy to use.

I hadn’t found it to be as easy as she made it seem. In fact, I was ready to delete it off my phone because I haven’t touched it much since then.

Layne included a screen shot of what she had done, which I found helpful since I’m a visual person. I can’t always understand things like this if I don’t have visuals to go with the words.

After reading this article, I’m willing to give it another try. And I will.

2. Most Common Writing Mistakes

K.M. Weiland has an awesome website. I can’t stress it enough here that if you are a writer I would strongly recommend reading her articles.

In this article, Weiland gives 52 different mistakes in writing. Each point has a link you can click on and read more. Some of those mistakes are ones I’ve either made as a writer, or I have seen as an editor. This article is a great resource.

3. 7 Sure-fire Ways to Reduce Stress and Restore Your Sanity

I’ve been dealing with more stress than I care to deal with. I’m always looking for ways to relieve that stress, or should I say new ways to deal with it.

My usual ways of dealing with stress is journaling to get the thoughts out of head so they’re not rolling around in there, giving me grief. I usually feel better after I write my thoughts and feelings down.

But I know that doesn’t work for all of us.

Michael Hyatt gives several different ways to help with stress. I’ve tried exercising, but I can’t seem to get into a routine. I need to try that again because I know it’s good for you.

I enjoy watching movies and sharing what I think about them so that’s always a good way for me to relieve stress. Photography is another good one, especially since I have a good Nikon camera again.

I need to show more gratitude for the good things that happen to me. Sometimes that’s hard, though, when the negative things outweigh the good. I have to look harder to see the good things happening to me.

4. 6 Signs That You Need a Break!

I saw Valorie Burton in the summer of 2015 at the Thirty-One conference I attended. Her words spoke to me as I sat there in the convention center among 15,000 other consultants.

I’ve been dealing with so much over the last two years. At times the stress keeps me from focusing on what I need to be doing. I do a recharge every once in a while. And by recharge, I mean having a lazy day, such as having a day of binge watching Netflix or sleeping.

Burton helps you see when you need that break. I see now that having those lazy days is a good thing for me.

5. 7 Positive Affirmations To Tell Yourself Every Day

When I became a Nerium Brand Partner, I learned the company wants to “make people happy.” One of the things we are supposed to do each day is read 10 pages of a personal development book.

Whatever book we choose to read should help us to be happy and positive. I find the more I read positive things the more it helps me. I try hard not to let things get me down, but sometimes that’s easier said than done.

I like, or a better word might be love, this article. I could easily see myself writing down each one of these seven affirmations and putting them some place where I can see them and say them — repeat them — every day.

What article meant the most to you? What is one thing you learned from reading these five articles?
