Welcome to summer in quarantine—where time is a weird construct of the mind, a tank of gas will last four months, and simple decisions require way too much brainpower. It’s so hard to motivate to pick goals each month, but my mind and body and spirit crave a semblance of normalcy and so, here we go. I don’t have goals from July to look back on, but here’s hoping I can stick with this and make it a regular feature on my blog again.
Let’s dive in!
- Continue with the 10% Happier meditation challenge. One of my friends introduced me to this app—I read Dan Harris’ book 10% Happier some time ago and it made an impact so I’m fully committed to sticking with 10 minutes of meditation per day. Check out the 10% Happier app, wherever apps are available
- Do at least one pandemic-friendly activity each week as a family. One day I’m going to look back at these strange times and wonder how we made it, and I want to have solid memories to propel me forward. Sure, there are some things we can’t do just yet (it’s totally weird that we’ve never gone in a store all together for fun baby shopping!) but the world is our oyster and I plan on more walks and hikes when weather breaks, road trips, lake days, vegetarian bbq’s in the backyard, pool time (my friend gifted me the cutest little frog for our baby fish to cool off in). Do you have any other socially-distanced activities to recommend?
- Try to incorporate more reading/writing every day. I also want to dust off and use my planner more regularly; I’m working full-time and have calls and projects to stay on top of so I know it’ll come in handy
That’s it! Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Do you have goals to share? Let me know in the comments. We’re no longer linking these up but I still want to read what you are working on so I can support you in August. Hope everyone is enjoying the summer! Xoxo
