Getting Organized

One of our favorite tips for improving your mental health is focusing on the organization of your daily to-do list in the form of color coding with our MILDLINER Double-Ended Creative Highlighters. Not only are they the best choice for your lists, MILDLINER comes in a variety of vibrant, mild colors so you never run out of inspiration.

Visual representation of a color-coded to-do list can also help you tackle your tasks from most important to least important. It can be as simple as using a red MILDLINER to highlight the things you want to get done first, a yellow MILDLINER for things you want to accomplish next, and a green MILDLINER for things you can add to your to-do list for the next day. We encourage any combination of MILDLINER colors that fit into your personality best.

Creating a key for your color-coding can also help keep you on task and on top of your daily lists. Sticking to the color key can take out the stress of figuring out what to do next. Your lists can also reflect anything and everything you do inside and outside of your home – appointments, chores, and after school activities.

Tracking Habits

If you struggle sticking to habits, creating a habit tracker is another beneficial way to improve the progress of tasks you want to confine yourself to. You can think of a habit tracker as a to-do list but solely for your habits. They are a simple, yet effective way to visually lay out how often you participate in routines such as exercising, drinking water, reading, and more.

When you create your own habit tracker and fill in the progress of your daily, weekly, or monthly habits with MILDLINER, you are empowering your mental health in numerous ways! For example, seeing how long you kept a habit going helps keep you motivated to act again and keep the streak going.

Not only is it also motivating to see the progress you are making, but it is also satisfying and rewarding to record the success of a completed habit. With the 35 color variants of our MILDLINER Double-Ended Creative Highlighters, there are so many options to track your habits in color!
