No Plans July
Life has been moving really fast lately. Too fast. It’s too much to keep up with and I realized something has to change or I’m going to lose my marbles. I want to be more present and mindful in my daily life. Do less. Spend more time doing things I love.
Enter no plans July.
For the entire month of July I’m not making any plans. I need to hit pause and reset. Spend time with my family. Rest. Enjoy the simple things. I am going to take a “staycation” and focus on a personal project. I need this time for me, and at the end of the day the only person who can make it happen is me. So that is exactly what I am going to do. Part of me wonders if it is something I can really stick to, but I think I can. The timing feels right.
Here are some of the things I plan to do:
- Spend time with my kids doing fun summertime activities
- Beach days
- Date nights with my husband
- Write more on this blog
- Go to bed before 10pm
- Wake Up Early
- Swim in the ocean
- Take a yoga class
- Read one book for business
- Read one book for fun
- Call a friend
- Work on family photo albums
- Enjoy leisurely walks with Kona
- Do house work I’ve been putting off
- Get a massage
I realize putting together a list like this might seem like I’m actually making plans, but I’m really not. It’s more like a personal reminder to do these things more. I realize there may be events and activities that come up here and there, but for the most part I am going to stick to making no plans. I have to admit, I’m pretty excited about it. I need this. My soul needs this. If I don’t make time now, then when will I make the time? Busy is not a badge of honor, and I’m tired of being busy.
What are your plans for July? Would you be interested in taking 30 days in your life to make no plans?
