We all make the same resolutions to ourselves every year, sleep more, eat less, less caffeine blah, blah , blah. Usually takes me about a month to settle on an actual resolution. This year it’s setting a bed time and eating more greens. What about you?
Below are some links you may find helpful in keeping this year’s promise to yourself.
- Meatless Mondays
- Packing a lunch? Recipe planning? Recipe planning can make your week SO much smoother. When I fall off track, a tool like this Moleskin planner can really help. If Moleskin is not your jam, these are pretty, as well as these.
- Make breakfast ahead of time; it’s one less thing to worry about in the morning. Overnight oats. Here too.
- Less caffeine: Best chai ever.
