>> DAY 8 of 100 DAYS OF PRODUCTIVITY

* jk kids don’t fail at school, k? good *
🎧 Listening to: Rather Be by Clean Bandit
Scotland’s government announced it would be testing out a program providing free sanitary products to people with periods, becoming the first country to do so.
According to the Scotsman, the six-month pilot program will start off by sending sanitary products to three secondary schools, a college and a range of nonprofits and charities like Women’s Aid, an organization that provides support for domestic violence victims.
The move is a significant step in combating “period poverty,” a term used to describe the lack of access many people have to menstrual products. Read more (7/12/17)
>> DAY 1 of 100 DAYS OF PRODUCTIVITY
I’m starting up this productivity challenge again! Last time I only got up to Day 8 or something, so I hope I can do better this time!
Today I studied for my French placement test at the end of the month, and my head is swimming with conjugations. 😫😬😑😥

I decided to do something special as I’m nearing follower milestones on both my Tumblr and IG accounts. So here is my first free printable! It’s a planning/to-do list and I hope it will be of use to you guys. :) These are free to print and use, but please do not remove the watermark.
They are formatted as A6 size which is a quarter of a regular letter sized page. (4.5inx5.25in) or for a whole letter. (both work ^.^)
❤️ Forest : plant a tree and it grows, but only if you keep the app open. Stops you from wasting time on your phone. If you need to work on something you can plant a tree and then you won’t go on your phone
❤️ My Water : a simple water tracker that is easy to use. Enter your weight and how much you work out and it will calculate how much water you need. Then you simply add your water and it fills your screen throughout the day. It will send you notifications and remind you to drink water.
❤️ Reminders : comes pre downloaded. Add things that you need to get done and when you want to be reminded of them. Once you’ve finished check it off. I especially like that the notification doesn’t go away by unlocking your phone. So if the notification goes off and you open your phone to text someone and lock your phone again, the notification is still there. You can also set up locational reminders, so if you need to remember to let the dog out, you could set up a reminder to do so to go off when you are near your house.
❤️ calendar : comes pre downloaded. Put in any appointments, meetings, test dates, important deadlines, birthdays, practices, or any other days or activities you can’t miss. You can set it up so the app will send you a notification when the date approaches.
❤️ Your banks app : Lots of banks have apps. These allow you to check your balance at anytime. Check your app before you head into a store to help prevent over spending.
❤️ balanced : this is a ‘to do’ style app. Input things you want to make sure get done on a regular basis such as work out, how many times a day, week, or month you want to get this thing done. The app will send you a notification when you have been slacking and not filling it out. The free version of this app only allows you to put in five tasks, but you can have unlimited tasks when you upgrade.
❤️ clue : this is a simply, classy, and effective period tracker. It’s not frilly and pink like many of the other ones. After about six cycles it is very accurate. It comes with lots of tags you can chose from depending on what you want to track. It has things like blood level, pain, mood, productivity, motivation, sleep, energy and more. You can also add custom tags so you can track anything.
❤️ bear : this is a note app. You could also use the notes app but I like this one. It allows you to create lists or any other notes and operates very similarly to any word processor, but it is much easier to use. I love the ability to add check boxes. It is great for to do lists and you can check it off rather than just deleting it like you would have to do on the regular notes app. Checking things off a list is good because you allows you to see how much you have accomplished rather than focusing on how much is left to do.
These are iOS apps, and all are free. I’m not sure if they are available on other operating systems
