Hello July!

Hello July!

July is my favorite month, because I help run a Summer camp.  I get to make art all day long, and show kids how to think outside the box and use their creativity to make something out of nothing.  More on that later.

July is my favorite month, it is also one of my busiest.  Besides Camp we have been working on several projects around the house and backyard.  We are not all work, though I really like accomplishing things.  July is also the month of summer music and concert season for my husband and I.  All this on top of regular family duties and responsibilities make July a wonderful and fun month.


To reflect all of this I changed my Monthly Layout to a much more simplified and streamlined look.



This month I decided to simplify my trackers from last month, realizing I was trying to track far too many things.  This month I will focus on what I need to track but not necessarily give 100% focus to tracking this month.  The trackers that remained are Yoga, Swim, Walk, Alcohol, Etsy, Journaling, Screen time, and Time out.  These trackers help me monitor how I may be doing emotionally/physically per day.  If I find I am anxious, upset, or unfocused there have been correlation to exercise or alcohol intake, paired with lack of journaling or creative expression.  So keeping an over view of these items has been helpful over the past few months and will remain.

When it comes to tracking my monthly calendar I find this page is left forgotten towards the end of the month as I use my weekly layouts to sustain my planning week by week.  So this month I really focused on upcoming events, dates, and concerts so I have just an overall plan, but not relying on storing additional information on these pages.

So far I'm 6 days into June and everything is working out nicely.  More on the new projects and weekly spread coming soon!

Happy Journaling!
