Do you have trouble following through on new habits, or goals? Maybe you start out really strong, but then a few weeks in you’ve lost some steam…you miss a day…and then another…and by the end of the month you’ve given up altogether. I see it happen all.the.time. You’re not alone! Holding yourself accountable can be really uncomfortable and challenging. If the scenario above sounds familiar, I want to introduce you to one of my favorite things: Habit Trackers! Keep reading to find out: what a habit tracker is; what you can track with it; how to use it; and where to snag one for yourself!
You guys know I LOVE a good command center; I believe that every family needs their own version of one. Until recently my command center was a DIY situation, where I’d compiled different pieces to make it work for us. Then, over the holidays I received some money in lieu of gifts, and I decided to splurge on an all-in-one command center that I’ve had my eyes on for almost a year… Keep reading to see before and after photos of our command center, PLUS find out why I’m obsessed with 1Thrive Wall Organizers.
Our five-year-old has a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out), which used to make bedtime REALLY difficult. If she could hear us downstairs she’d be at her door asking “What are you doing? What are you watching? Who are you talking to?”. She just couldn’t shut that little brain off. Every night was an hour long struggle to get her settled and asleep. It was exhausting, ridiculously stressful, and we hated ourselves every night for getting mad and yelling at her just GET.IN.BED. I started doing some research on a solution and came across the Moshi app. Moshi has SAVED OUR SANITY, and I want to take some time to tell you all about it; because every parent deserves a stress free bedtime routine.
2020 has been quiiiite the year, am I right? A lot of small businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic, and that’s caused a shift in more people wanting to “shop small” to try and support them.
As the holiday season was approaching, I kept thinking, “Ok…everyone wants to shop small…but what if they aren’t familiar with any small businesses? How will they know where to shop?”. Being the insomniac that I am, I had a random idea in the middle of the night.
WHAT IF I could create a digital, small business gift guide/catalogue? You know, like the ones that Amazon, Walmart, and LEGO have been sending to your house for your kids? But this would be for adults, and all the products in it would be from a small business owner. That little spark of an idea became a flame and I got to work. Let me tell you a little bit about the 2020 Small Business Holiday Gift Guide.
As parents, it’s SO EASY to get carried away at Christmas. We get caught up in that Christmas magic; it’s just so fun to buy things for our kids! As we shop we’re anticipating their joy when they open everything. But what’s the consequence? We inevitably spend too much money, and we fill our house with more stuff. Not to mention, our kids usually have other people ALSO shopping for them; so there’s no reason we have to go overboard with our shopping! This year, I want you to try the “five gift rule”! So…what is the five gift rule?
Last year was…WEIRD. So I get not wanting to invest in a new planner, because we just don’t know what this new year has in store for us. But I also get that you need something to help collect your thoughts, because #mombrain. So I want to offer another option: Printable planners!
