The start of July is bittersweet. I have so many questions. Where did June go? Why haven’t I reorganized my bookshelf like I said I would? And most importantly, where’s my fruity drink iced coffee drink with the little umbrella?

Despite these unanswered questions, I’m moving forward with setting my small goals for this month. As many of you know, my monthly goals posts focus on physical and emotional health, which I believe are equally important. My hope is that these posts inspire you to check in with yourself each month, to see if your physical and emotional health are where you would like them to be.

But first, let’s see how I did with last month’s goals.


This was an all-in-one goal with the intent of reducing my ear problems. I’m thrilled to say that it’s worked! I haven’t had a single issue with my ears since the beginning of June! No more avoiding noisy restaurants or having to confine myself to a silent room. My fingers are crossed that this trend continues.


I’m learning to accept that thinking time is working time. But I think this may always be a struggle for me. Time will tell.
Now onto my small goals for this month:


Since summer began, I upped my walking game and entirely quit doing yoga. I need to start up again. It’s good to get on the mat, and it makes me feel stronger. Flexibility would be nice too, especially when I’m reaching for the last bit of chocolate on the top shelf ;)I’ll probably start with this playlist. The practices are all 10 minutes and under.



Despite working from home all day in solitude, I never take time to just sit and let my mind wander. Sure, I think a lot about work projects and the topic of my next blog post, but it’s not a relaxing endeavor. My best ideas have always come out of the blue, when I wasn’t thinking about work. So, I’m going to try to spend at least five minutes every day, staring out the window, letting my mind go. When it’s starts wandering to the fridge for the last scoop of ice cream, I’ll know my time is up.

That’s it for my small goals. How about you? What goals have you set for yourself this month? Let me know in the comments section!

  1. I'm really hoping to start some yoga as well- Music With Miss W's post on teacher burnout inspired me 🙂 I am SO GLAD that are ears are better. What a nightmare that was! I hope this new regimen continues to be effective!

    1. Awesome! If you haven't already, you should check out Yoga with Adriene on Youtube. She has a video for just about anything you'd want. And yes, I'm THRILLED about my ears. I was starting to think I would just have to live with it.
