If you’ve been a consistent reader of my blog, you will know that I am trying to simplify and establish healthy habits for me and my household. You will also know that I’m not naturally prone to being consistent and sticking with routines.
While I do consistently write daily “to do” lists, I have never consistently written down goals for the week/month/year. Writing a daily “to do” list keeps me focused on my days off when I could potentially just read all day (like today).
When I have written down short and long-term goals, I have always been surprised at the power of writing it down on paper. There is a certain focus that happens when things are written down. #weeklygoals Click To Tweet
So I’m going to start writing weekly goals and checking in weekly here on the blog. Most of these goals I’m already trying to do and I’m just putting them down on paper to actually track how I’m doing.
- Continue to follow my 5x5x5 Bible Reading Plan
- Pray for my husband and children using these prayer calendars
- Take 10 slow, deep breaths in the morning. Silent prayer and meditation.
- Exercise 5 days (running at least 2 of those days)
- Sleep at least 6 hours a night
- Write down 3 things I’m grateful daily
- Meal Plan dinner for the weeknights
- One mini decluttering project
- Work at least 15 minutes in the basement with hubby
- Family outing on Screen Free Sundays
- Post at least twice a week
- Finish writing pin descriptions on my old pins!
- Date night with hubby (where we actually go out of the house together…without kids)
- One on one outings with each son
We’ve tried doing weekly dates, but we’re finding monthly is more realistic for us, especially with each of us trying to do one on ones with our sons as well.
Do you write down weekly or monthly goals? Have you found it helpful?
