Life Hack in Action #16: Color Coding Calendar

"Hi, I'm Jennie Coston, the project assistant for the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition and a supervisor at the Midland County Educational Service Agency. Today, I'm excited to share with you one of my favorite Life Hacks: Life Hack # 11 Color Coding Calendars. This Life Hack has been a game-changer for me, both at work and in my personal life, as a busy mom of three. With color coding, I can easily keep track of everyone's schedules and commitments. At home, our big family calendar is color-coded, with each family member assigned a different color. Whether it's appointments, school events, or extracurricular activities, we know at a glance whose schedule is whose. The same goes for my work calendar. Each committee or meeting I'm involved in gets its own color, making it effortless to see at a glance what I have on my plate for the day. Not only does color coding keep me organized, but it also saves me time and energy. With just a quick glance at my calendar, I can instantly see what's on the schedule at work and home, allowing me to plan my day accordingly. If you're considering trying this life hack, I recommend picking colors or symbols that are meaningful to you. Whether you associate colors with specific family members or use symbols to represent different work groups, find what works best for you. It's a simple yet effective way to stay organized and save you time and hassle in the long run. "
