Alright… since I just wrote 4 Ways to Remember Your Monthly Goals… I thought I better actually set a few goals and try out my methods. So here are 3 habits I want to establish this month:
1. No Phone During School Time:
This pretty much looks just like it says… I will not be “playing” on my phone during school time. Instead I will play with Delaney, be readily available to help the bigger kids and leave my phone on my bedside table during that time. Yes I will put the no phone sign on the schoolroom door.
2. Write For a Minimum 10 Minutes 6 Days a Week:
It’s one of the rules of writing don’t you know? Show up and write. My plan? Set a phone alarm (or maybe 2 just in case I am in the middle of a very important something or another when the first one sounds). Then I will ignore any child who is not critically injured or having an explosive bodily function and write.
3. Spend at Least 15 Minutes Outside Everyday:
Again a phone alarm reminder will probably work well for this. A walk with the kiddos after breakfast sounds… well slightly stressful… but with the right attitude it will be fun. Ok ok so this might be an experimental ever evolving goal…
