monthly challenges: march

I wish I remembered where I read or heard of this, but either a book I read or a podcast I listen to recommended you try something new for 30 days to see if you like it. this something new should be something that either improves yourself, your business, or those around you. kind of like trying out a new habit! a healthy habit, of course.

if you can stick with it for those 30 days and it enhances your lifestyle, you can incorporate it into your everyday life moving forward. if it doesn’t, at least you tried something new – and probably learned from the experience! perhaps it’s trying out an instrument? learning a new word from a new language every day? practicing yoga? meditation (I’m definitely going to try this one!)? cook a new recipe?

so for each month (starting today, March 1!), I’m going to be doing a monthly challenge, where I practice something NEW or the entire month (about 30 days). I didn’t want to preselect all the challenges for the entire year, because I’m always changing and there are always areas of my life that change and some need more help than others at certain times, so I’m just starting with March.

march challenge

read for at least 30 minutes a day from a business book. (currently reading Gary Vaynerchuk’s new book, Crushing It!) I feel like a lot of my time is wasted watching TV, scrolling through social media, and snoozing when I don’t really need the extra ZZZs. also, I don’t prioritize self development as an entrepreneur – reading a business book should be regarded as “work”, because it will end up helping me in my business! every time I finish a business book, I’m more motivated and end up incorporating so many tips and principles from these books that help my brand.

I’ll be setting calendar reminders each day to get my 30 minutes in! and hopefully I’ll be able to do this and it’ll be something I continue to do for the rest of the year!

do you want to join me?

if so, leave your March challenge below in the comments and we’ll check back in April to start a new challenge and chat about it!

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it

making a batch of this VEGAN PUMPKIN SNACKING LOAF today 🍞! I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...
