Trying to get back on track!
If you're been visiting at my kitchen table for awhile, you know that periodically I see the need to try and challenge myself to establish better habits in areas of my life. (The areas are not always the same, which is sort of encouraging in a way, showing that at least some progress is being made.) I mentioned last week that I was going to try and start out on another back-on-track challenge today. I don't want to wait for a new year to try and establish some better habits. So I am going to try and challenge myself in these four areas :
* health and energy -- specifically eating right, exercising, drinking enough water, and getting enough sleep
* spiritual life -- especially Bible study, Scripture memory and meditating on Scripture
* homemaking -- getting back into the routines that work for me; getting better at time management
* creativity -- blogging more often and trying to craft some birthday and Christmas gifts.
I will be starting the challenge today -- and, working on the principle that it takes 21 days to establish a habit, will end the challenge on November 11. I will try and post every day or two as to how I am doing with the four areas. If anyone cares to join me in the challenge, you are more than welcome!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
