There are so many things we Mamas have to do in a day and sometimes the hardest part of getting through your to-do list is simply getting started! The Happy Unconventional Day Printable Motivation Game is my secret weapon to getting stuff done that I don’t like to do!

How a Printable Motivation Game Works
Here’s how it works. I turn my to-do list into a game by giving myself points for everything I do. If I don’t mind doing something, I give myself a couple of points. If I don’t like doing something I give myself a whole lotta points for getting that thing done.
It’s just a game. How many points you give yourself doesn’t really matter. What matters is that this game serves as a tool to help you be more productive and get things done!
Simply print your game board out on cardstock and laminate it (or pop it in a page protector) and tape it to the fridge, put it the front of your day planner… put it wherever you’re going to see it and it will be handy. (Or just print a new one every week if you want.) Then, as you go through your day, take a dry erase marker and jot down points as you accumulate them. At the end of your day, total the points up and see how much you accomplished!
The Happy Unconventional Day Game is absolutely free and you’ll find it in our Free Resource Library. I have included one game board that is already mostly filled out for you. These are the basic items that most of us have to do every day. There is also a blank game board for you to customize for the unique needs of your family and your life!

It helps me to have a couple of friends who are playing the game with me. Somehow it’s easier to do mundane tasks when I know I have friends “out there” who are spending their day doing the same kind of things I’m doing. Sometimes we compare how many points we earned and sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we work together to see how many points we can earn as a group. If you want friends to play the Home Blessings Game with friends, join our Happy Unconventional Moms Club on Facebook! We post weekly threads there! You can find the current thread right here.
