Happy Tuesday! And a Happy Valentine’s Day if you’re celebrating all things love and romance today. And yes, that includes loving yourself. Or maybe I should say that starts with loving yourself.
It’s been another gorgeous day here in Central Ontario. I am loving the sun and the warm temperatures, and it’s been a joy to be out and about. I’m sure winter is not done with us yet, but a little break before the next snow storm has been really welcome!
Yesterday was such a high energy day for me, that today has been a bit of a recovery day. Just like when you exercise and you’re supposed to have a rest day in between, I’m sort of feeling like this has been a bit of a rest day for me in terms of energy. In other words, I’m not getting a whole lot done!
But, I did get a huge step accomplished on the new shop site today. I think now that I’m over the first big hurdle that I procrastinated on for two weeks I’ll be able to really move forward and get the rest done. I already committed to my coach to have the home page finished by Thursday, so that’s next on the list.
I’m getting really excited to get everything done because I want to have a YouTube channel to go along with the new site and shop, and since I’ve made that decision, I’m coming up with all kinds of videos I want to do for you!
Oh, and in a moment of pure magic this afternoon, I learned how to do something in Thrive Theme Builder that I’ve been trying to figure out for about 2 months now! And it was so freakin’ easy once I knew where to look! (That will definitely be one of the videos that’s coming on my new channel for you!)
And yes… you can tell when I’m getting excited about something because the exclamation points come out to play!
Here’s what I have for you today…
Today’s Read: Productive Procrastination? Is That Really a Thing?
Productive procrastination? Isn’t that just a bit of an oxymoron?
Not really. Just because you’re procrastinating on one thing, doesn’t mean you can’t be doing something else productive with that time.
The problem is that most people procrastinate ineffectively. They prefer to play games on their phone, surf Facebook, or watch YouTube videos when they could be doing something productive with that time.
Before we get to how to procrastinate productively, let’s talk about why you might be procrastinating in the first place.
The causes of procrastination are many and varied. They can range from lack of self-compassion to thinking you can’t do something to underestimating the time it takes to complete a task. Procrastination can also be a learned behavior – if your boss or role model is a procrastinator then chances are good you’ll be one too. (source)
The truth is only you know why you procrastinate. And only you can make the decision to procrastinate effectively. I’m just here to put a few ideas into your head.
Here are 12 ways you can practice productive procrastination instead.

Pick of the Week #3 – The Anything is Possible Mindset from JR Lang. I’m loving this because it comes with all kinds of content that I’ll be able to use on my blog and in my personal use shop as products such as: an ebook, 2 reports, 30 mantras, 30-day challenge, 29 articles, social posts, checklist, and more.
If you’re in the Personal Development niche, this is an amazing topic to cover, I think, because mindset is so important. It’s one of the reasons I included it as a focus topic in the recent bundle, and why it’s something I’m wanting to focus more on this year for myself and my community.
Check out JR’s package here – It is on a dimesale, so the price goes up as sales come in. When I looked this afternoon, it was just over $23.00 which is still a steal of the amount of content she includes in her packages.

Watercolor Journal Templates & ClipArt, Vol. 2 is one of the first products I ever created when I started my first PLR store. It was actually the product I put into my very first bundle sale way back when, but it never really made it into the store except as an afterthought and so no one has seen it in years. The watercolors are all developed from my own hand-painted brushstrokes, and just writing about them now gives me another idea for my new shop. (That’s intentional magic at work, methinks.)
Anyways… this package includes:
- 15 Watercolor Digital Papers
- 15 Background templates in 3 sizes
- 15 Journal Templates
- 150 Butterfly Clipart
- 150 Flower Clipart
