I love the idea of starting something new or refreshing things for the second half of the year. I am always a bit envious when my kids go back to school so whether I go take a class of interest or continue working on my home, this article was inspiring.

Just bought a new office chair. My old one was uncomfortable, hurt my back etc. I am already spending more time at my desk and being productive.

I would say to purchase a quality planner that you love and is portable to make appointments on the go. There are so many options these days but my favorites are ring planners such as Filofax or Gillios or a nice traveler's notebook, both are completely customizable.
