I swear, sometimes it seems like everything in my life revolves around lists. I freak out if I don’t make them and I have so many of them it would probably drive some people crazy. But there are major perks to having lists, and having them available on-the-go ensures that I never forget anything important. Today’s post is a bit strange, but bear with me as I share with you a few of the advantages behind my list addiction, and you may even become a list addict yourself!
The first is storage. There is so much going on in that brain of mine that it helps me feel more relaxed to know that I can temporarily forget about whatever it is I’m trying to remember because I wrote it down somewhere. This could be to-do lists, packing lists, grocery lists, or something entirely different!
At least for me, lists are one of those things that make travel a whole lot easier as I mentioned in my post, Top 4 Ways to Reduce Stress While Traveling. They can be crucial when traveling, because that is when you usually have extra to remember. Your list may even be a schedule of sights and attractions that you want to see upon arriving at your new destination.
The other is that feeling you get when you cross something off a list. It’s enlightening, isn’t it?! Okay, now you really think I’m crazy. But really, it can make you feel so accomplished to put that check mark by something that has been on your to-do list for ages.
So where do I keep them? Evernote is my lifesaver. I store all my lists there, which makes it convenient to access them wherever I am.
