Yes, I’ve found a method so I won’t have to waste my precious time and know which times are critical or not so I will always plot the right schedules at the right time. And you’re lucky because I’m sharing that with you today. J
Psychologists agree that color has a significant effect on our mood. In fact, there are certain colors which can soften or intensify your mood. Therefore, choosing the colors you see on your calendar do not only give you a bird’s eye view of how your whole day will go, it can also significantly impact the way you do the tasks written there. Say, if you want serenity, choose the color Green or Pink as it these are best known for its therapeutic and stress-relieving effects for events you would do almost every single day. This will dominate your whole calendar color scheme, hopefully giving you a better and calming mood. So, if you plan to be a happy camper when you view your calendar on a Monday morning, then you better be ready to be amazed.
