Well June has come and gone and it felt like a swift one! We had a long weekend here in Australia which involved an annual winery jaunt, but after that I decided to hit the health and fitness trail, only to be struck down by a stomach bug in the last week of the month.
So a tumultuous month, that’s for sure! But how did I go with last month’s intentions?
Keep the juggle calm
A stomach bug will keep you very calm. I’m not the greatest patient so relinquishing control and spending a few days in bed was tough but needed.
It’s good to remind ourselves that it’s ok to lose momentum and ditch routine, and you will often feel more grateful for your day-to-day when you return.
I have a lot of catch ups planned in the next month so although I’m trying to space them out to avoid any franticness, I’m also grateful I have lots of people to spend time with.
Do a financial review
Ok, so there was one Asos haul…Although I enjoyed my life changing magic of tidying up clean out, it has left me with only a couple of winter jacket options so I needed to top up a little. Needed being the operative word!
Other than that, I’m staying calm around money, paying down debt at a steady rate, and trying not to splurge on weekends. It’s working so far!
Seek out winter warmers
The number of winters we get to experience won’t be endless so July will be about embracing the chill and the activities that come with that.
With our Healesville weekend coming up, there will be roast dinners, red wine and fireplaces in my future.
I’m also spending my weekday mornings enjoying coffee while looking over grey skies, and that’s helping ground me in winter too.
Put first things first
If you’ve read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, you’ll be familiar with this principle. Prioritising important things to me like study and blogging will be a focus in July.
If I don’t break things down into smaller to-do lists I can feel overwhelmed and end up doing absolutely nothing towards my goals, so I’m going back to basics and will plan out what I want to do each week in July.
How’s your June been? Any fun plans coming up for July? Let me know below!
