As we start the New Year, we are trying to create some new habits, one being using a planner (including me!) to better time management. I find that I am actually better able to stay on task and gets done, imagine that!?! We have a planning day on Sunday where we get together, go through our weekly commitments and pencil in our to-do lists in our planner around the commitments. We started the first week of January.
I'm also trying to create a morning routine for myself and I have to say some days it has been really hard to get out of bed and get started but the days that I do stick to it, I feel the days going much smoother! Part of my morning routine is my quiet time with God and working on a Bible study. I am working on the same study as my kids, The Bible Road Trip. This is something that I placed in my planner (morning routine) and have been trying to stick with!
The last habit I am working on are finances with Dave Ramsey, I am going on my 2nd year of that and working my way through the baby steps! The older two are working on the high school, Foundations in Personal Finance (we just have the older version of the curriculum).
As the months go on I hope to still be working on these healthy habits even though there may be days where it would be easier not to.
