Happiness Check-In

finding happiness at home

About a month ago I wrote a post about finding more happiness in life. I felt like I was stressed out about general day-to-day things and I needed to regroup…so I did! My short-term goals for the month were to:

  • Go to at least 1 yoga class
  • Spend at least 5 hours a week reading
  • Take Allegra on longer walks
  • Buy a bottle of wine

While I didn’t make it to the yoga class, I did read for at least 5 hours a week, take Allegra on some great walks, and a bought a bottle of wine… each week. It’s crazy how much little things can make a difference in your overall attitude. While I wouldn’t say I have things under control yet, I would say that I’ve been a lot happier. More than anything my little goals reminded me to take time for myself and do things that I enjoy. This month I decided to make a few new goals that help me to remember to take care of myself and my surroundings:

  • Spend 20 minutes a day cleaning
  • Find something fun and free to take part in each weekend
  • Go to bed earlier on week days (11pm LATEST!)
  • Start my commute by 7am

I’m hoping that this month I can continue to take some time for myself while still carving out time to keep the house clean and get to work on time. I’ve noticed that when things are in order and my home is tidy, my stress levels go way down. What things are you working on this month?

  1. Great goals!! I NEED to set up some goals for myself, especially with the holidays around the corner and less time for the things I enjoy. Goals like: go to bed by 10pm, continue to get up at 5:15am for my workouts, not be so hard on myself with my diet, truly REST. Thanks for the push I needed.

    • I can’t believe we’re already at the end of August! Goals are always a good push for progress, now I just have to remember them hahha

    • THanks so much! I don’t know why I haven’t done much yoga at home. I’m going to give it a try this weekend. Thanks for the push! 🙂
