Friday: The Fresh Start Edition

Friday: The Fresh Start Edition

Who else is ready for school and childcare schedules to get back to normal? I know I am. Here we are almost a week into 2018 and I haven’t even finalized my intentions for the year, let alone started acting on them. That’s why I’m declaring the first week of the year a warm up.

Whether you’re behind like me or already in need of a reset, here are some ideas for starting fresh (again) on January 8.

More than half of all resolutions fail, but not yours!

Kids can set goals for the new year, too.

After being up and down with your littles all night, is it better to hit the gym or spend an extra hour in bed? Finally, the answer.

A combination of note taking, journaling, and listing that is said to change lives, but whatever you do, PLEASE DO NOT look up bullet journaling on Pinterest. It will paralyze you.

Everyone deserves a break from self improvement sometimes.
