august goals 2016

Happy August!
august 2016 goals
(That's my Get to Work Book)

At the beginning of every month, I look over my overarching goals/projects/resolutions for the year. This year I hope to blog often; read at least 15 min. every day; exercise (incorporate strength/interval training 3x a week and reach 10,000 steps a day); document our memories; declutter and "redecorrange" our home; meal prep; eat mindfully (eat more greens + vegetables and eat healthy desserts); drink more water; embrace routine; keep a prayer journal; get out alone; get out with each of my family members (for one on one time); and write fun, seasonal manifestos.*

In August I plan to:
  • Continue working on my summer manifesto
    • We went on a moonlit hike a couple of weeks ago (challenging and fun!) and we played Pictionary last week- crossed those off like a boss. ;)
  • Continue doing 1 fun activity every day for the rest of my daughters' summer break
    • School starts next week! We have a couple fun things we're aiming to squeeze in before then. 
  • Declutter 
    • I'm going to try to stick to a challenge when my daughters go back to school to declutter our home. (I feel like I'm drowning in clutter).
*I blogged about each of those goals in more detail at the beginning of the year: January 2016 Goals. I set monthly goals to get more specific with my yearly goals. There may be something specifically inspiring me this month, for example, that won't work (or I'm not feeling) at another time of the year. I talked about my goal-setting process in more detail: Goal- Setting: 2016

I'm keeping things simple this month. I need more simplicity in my life. What are you up to in August?
