Can you believe that November has officially arrived? It’s now time to pack away the Halloween decorations and give our homes and ourselves a bit of a refresh before we head into the Christmas and holiday season. Keep reading to find out what 5 things you should tackle this November.
I don’t know what it is about September, but I find I’m always encouraged to change up certain aspects of my life and start fresh with a new season. I think this is a good habit to get into, because it gives me 4 times throughout the year to reflect on my lifestyle and make changes where needed. Coming off of Summer, these little changes seem like a must because it can be so easy to get caught up in the fun and forget everything else.
I hope most of you can relate to this one: working out isn’t easy. Whether you’re new to the fitness world or if you’re a seasoned workout pro, working out and staying fit brings serious challenges along the way. I know for me personally, I really struggle to get myself motivated to get out and do something on a regular basis.
What is it about spring and sickness? Everyone and their dog seems to have a cold right now and germs are just freely flying. I find in our home, when Mr. W gets sick, I’m not far behind and visa versa. This time around, he came home with work sniffles that turned into a full-blown cold, so it’s nothing but soup, blankets and rest for him. But once all the foggy-ness has passed and you can finally breathe again, it’s amazing how much you can get done with that new-found energy. I personally go into house clean and sanitize mode to make sure all of the germs and otherwise are out of the house for good!
We wrapped up Christmas this week at West 5th and finished our holiday’s by ringing in the new year! Now it’s time to develop some healthy water habits and start the new year off right.
I originally found chia by doing some reading on my favorite blogs. Everyone was raving about how great they can be for your diet and in your everyday meals. So I decided to pick up a pack and give it a try. I picked up a bag and made a basic chia gel (more on that below) and started using them in everything I could think of. Well, it’s almost been 3 weeks and I can say I still love using them and I am always looking for new ways to add them into our diet!
