March Goals

February seemed to just fly by! I am late in posting these goals for March, but I still feel like it can’t really be March yet.

The theme for my goals this month is Simplicity.

I just began my final (!!) term of college, there is always housework and cooking to be done, and spring brings spring cleaning, yard work, and gardening. We are in the middle of planning a big trip for later in the spring and we are having a gospel meeting at our church in the middle of the month. I could go on…our lives are so busy and it seems like it will never slow down.

So I want to slow down.

My goals for this month (and to continue throughout the busy year) are to simplify and slow down, even during the crazy, busy times. I want to intentionally savor these days with Mae because she is growing like a little weed before my eyes (I seriously feel like time suddenly sped up when she was born. Where has the time gone??).

I want to stop multitasking (which probably makes my work less effective) and stop stressing about every single thing that needs to be done.

I want to focus on the task at hand and do it well. I know from experience that what needs to be done will get done. And everything else will be okay.

Some specific things I want to try this month to slow down and simplify are:

  • weekly meal planning (perhaps this will be a blog post soon?)
  • taking Mae outside on “nature walks”
  • less social media and more reading/writing
  • writing in my journal
  • keeping a thankfulness journal (in my prayer binder)
  • …I need more ideas 🙂

What do you do to simplify or slow down?
