I love creating a monthly checklist for the beginning of each month! If we are not conscious about our goals, then life kind of blends together. So, I'm VERY much into the idea of doing certain things at the start of each month. So, here's my top 10!
Reflect on the Previous Month: Frequent reflection is essential for growth. List down the significant events that happened last month. Note what went well and not so well. What mistakes did you make that could've been prevented? How can you be better next time? Did you take enough time to rest?
Check Finances: Go through your accounts to make sure nothing looks weird, make sure all your bills are paid or scheduled, and check-in with your spending habits. I recommend making a financial goal for the month, like saving $100 each week or making coffee/tea at home.
Give Your Body a Scan: I highly suggest giving yourself a monthly check-up! Are you feeling OK? How's your sleep? How was your cycle? Do you need to go to the dentist's?
Go Through Your Closet: See what you can donate or pack away for other seasons.
Set Personal Goals: It doesn't need to be massive; just pick 1-3 things you would like to work on this month.
Clean out Technology: Reorganize your desktop, delete old text messages and photos. Unsubscribe from emails and clear out those tabs in your browser!
Make a List: Do a brain dump of all the lingering tasks or thoughts in your head! Then prioritize the things that must get done this month. Lastly, schedule your assignments throughout the month.
Treat Yourself: Celebrate the new month by taking care of yourself; This could be scheduling a massage or buying that awesome ninja blender.
Let Go of All of Last Months Worries: A new month is a perfect time to move forward. Leave the baggage behind!
Take on a 30 Day Challenge: If you've wanted to make a significant change, eat healthier, sleep better, or start exercising again, etc.- a new month is the best time to start. So jump on day one, commit to a month and see where it takes you!
