This chart can help me organize my emotions during daily life and shoe me what to prioritize each day. I currently need to work on overcoming boredom.

I went on a walk that helped me clear my head. It was refreshing to be outside. I thought about the change of seasons and it cheered me up. I came back ready to do more work.

WHAT I LEARNED and PROBLEMS I SOLVED

I learned about the process of getting work done. I learned that I should establish a goal at the beginning of my work day and accomplish it. A problem that I solved was overcoming procrastination to complete this blog post.
