I’m following along with the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge at Money Saving Mom. I started the challenge in January to help keep me motivated to lose weight and help me establish some good healthy habits too.
How the Challenge Works
Each month of the challenge will have an area to focus on, to help improve your health and mine. This month’s focus will be on keeping a gratitude journal. Do you keep a blessings journal?
I know I don’t usually write down my blessings each day. But I do keep them stored away in my mind for those days when I really need to refocus on what’s most important.
My Goal for November’s Focus Area
This month I’ll be working on writing down a blessing each day of the week. I don’t have a gratitude journal but I did make a page to use for this purpose. Just click on the photo above or this link to download and print a blessing journal page, for yourself.
My plan is to write down one blessing, each morning after I get up and make it part of my morning routine. Counting your blessing can really help to set the tone for the day and make you feel good. Another great reasons to keep a gratitude journal, to help bring your focus back to what is most important on those not so great days.
I know when I’m having a bad day, just being able to think of things I’m so fortunate to have, can really make a difference. The little blessing as well as the big ones can turn a bad day into a good day, in just seconds.
Will you be joining in the challenge for this month?
My Progress for this week
This week I did really well about taking time each day to think about the blessings I have in my life. But again, I forgot to write them down. I really shouldn’t have this much trouble doing it, but I did. I thought I would share a few of the blessing from this week.
I’m blessed to have children who are willing to help.
I’m blessed to be healthy and strong enough to take on our mountain of leaves falling from the trees.
I’m blessed to have such great friends.
I’m blessed to have a nice home to live in and family to share it with.
What are some of the things you are blessed to have?
This is the last week of the month. Next month is the last month of the year. I can’t believe it. The focus for December will be simplicity, just say no.
