I could do a little squeal I’m so excited about June being here! Have I ever told you how much I LOVE the warmer months? I mean, I know it doesn’t really reach double digits when it comes to the temperature in Scotland, but light evenings, picnics, holidays, day drinking… so much to be happy about!
01. June is a very, very big month for me! Actually, for both Jordan and I – we’ve got a fun trip planned, a biiig celebration, two 30th birthday parties… one of which is Jordan’s!
I was in charge of planning a little somethin’ for him, but so far I’ve drawn a blank. I’ve got a few weeks to get something sorted (yep, last minute but we’ve had a lot going on lately!), so if anyone has any ideas…
02. Make good use of my time. I’ve really been leaving my comfort zone a lot lately and agreeing to trips and opportunities that I would usually turn down. I don’t love to be super busy and stressed out, I like an easy life… but sometimes you just want a little more, you know?
The next couple of months are set to be my busiest yet, and I find that when I’m away a lot, my work starts to slip. I need to find a good balance, so I feel organised and ahead of my tasks, but also relaxed and happy with my travel plans etc. Basically, no more procrastinating for me!
03. Set myself some goals. I feel like I’m at a good stage in my life, in that I’m settled and happy, but I don’t really have any goals as such.
I’m not really working towards anything, I’m kind of bumbling along doing my thing. I want to sit down and really think about what I want from the next few years – to continue as I am? Consider a move abroad? Release a book? Time to start planning!
If anyone has any tips on writing down and focusing on your goals, I’d be very grateful…
04. A digital detox. I noticed recently that I was spending from 8am – 6pm on my computer, and then from 7pm – 11pm on my phone, whilst watching TV. So. many. screens.
I’ll also pick up my phone out of habit, when I’ve just put it down, and I refresh my emails constantly even on Sundays. It’s not good and it’s leaving me feeling a bit foggy-headed.
I’m really going to try and get better at having a detox, putting my phone away in the evenings and living in the moment! I definitely need it.
Yay for busy, eventful months. What’s on your to-do list this month?
