6 Months To Change Your Life Update 2


Well it’s that time again! Time to weigh up what I’ve achieved this month and what I’ve failed to achieve.

I honestly felt like I hadn’t done much at all but when I was reflecting over the month I realised I had actually done a fair bit.

I’m finding that having a commitment to posting this update helps a lot in my motivation to get things done!

So let’s look at my achievments for the month.

* Assembled all the new furniture
* Rearranged the living room and decluttered
* Requested permission to redecorate
* Finished reading Beautiful Creatures
* Had more family time
* Alexis started nursery, I finally bit the bullet
* Had two date nights with my other half
* Sorted Alexis’s bedroom
* Moved Chloe into Alexis’s room
* Massive toy declutter and listed on FB groups
* Started a new e-course
* Bought a blog domain
* Started creative journaling
* Sorted the garden
* Met up with some friends
* Became a member of the UglyBugDoes design team

All in all it’s actually been a pretty productive month. I’ve been Ill the last week so I feel like if it wasn’t for that I may have got more accomplished.

Next month my goals are:
* Unpack and sort bedroom boxes
* Organise Adam’s room
* Book Declutter
* Sort out the shed
* Sort out two kitchen units
* Bin the big box outside
* Finish Spark Joy book
* Finish an e-course
* Work on organising the big northern planner meet.

Everything seems achievable if I put the effort in and don’t get side tracked.

I have noticed over the last few months that distraction and procrastination seems to be a massive thing for me. The time I get to myself is rather limited so when I do get some I want to indulge in something purely relaxing (episodes of Gilmore Girls and Vanderpump Rules currently take this spot).

I am really trying to work on changing this as I do feel much better when I can tick things off my list.

I’d love to hear how you are doing on your journey:)

Thanks for reading.

  1. I totally agree with you about procrastinating! It’s so so easy to just ‘veg out’ in front of Netflix in free time, then you realise you’re not doing anything productive. I’d love to know any ideas you have for beating procrastination? I’ve found the Pomodoro technique quite useful! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Have a lovely day,


    1. I also use the Pomodoro Technique, it’s really helpful. Lately I’m finding that by splitting my day I get more done. As I am a stay at home mum I tend to do all my chores on a morning starting with something like washing the dishes as its mindless and doing them makes a hige difference in my motivation. Once I see that all done it spurs me to do everything else. I spend the afternoon then playing with my daughter and sneaking an episode of something on. Evenings I catch up on paperwork while watching programmes. X

      1. Ah that sounds like a great way of doing things! Means you get some quality time with your daughter too ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m definitely looking into working more that way with e day broken up into different areas. Thanks for the ideas!
