How to finish a to do list

Hey leaves, what’s up? So today I’ll be telling you how to actually finish your to do list.

Keep one for the entire day

So, when you wake up; get some paper and think to yourself; ‘what dois I want to dodo by the end of the day?’ Although,when you wake up you’ll feel tired and unmotivated; so what gives you more attention and focus to start the day. When writing on the paper, keep your handwriting neat.

Give yourself prizes

Giving yourself prizes keeps you motivated. Example: have breakfast after exercising. Unfortunately, when you look at a long list; you get tired and not want to start. So instead of too many items; start with 3.

So yeah Leaves, that’s it for now!

How I make my designs #2

Hey leaves<333 So my 1st part was covering canva, so now we’re covering kapwing~

Check out the first part:

Now, let’s get into this. I’ll be making the featured image for this post.

Search up: kapwing / or just use this link:

Click on: “start editing”

you’re going to get a page like this, just remove the images.

Now, go to the images tab. Make a search for an image: I usually go for a aesthetic images. Although, if you just want a bg color, search the color.

keep scrolling till you find an image that suits what you’re going for.

After that, go to the elements tab and find something that matches. If you don’t know, you can always scroll randomly and pick.

Now look through your work so far….. do you like it? Is there anything you can change? Is there anything you want to remove? If you want to remove everything, reapet the other steps.

I didn’t really like mine, so I re-did all the steps. you can add more elements that match the style.

Now that I like it, and I don’t want it too be too messy, I’m going to add text

Now add “header text” And add your post name : )

press the text color button.

using the font button, change it~

Now export it.
