Let's Talk: New Years

Happy Monday!

I am linking up with some of my favorites Andrea & Erika for the Let's Talk series. 

Let's Talk New Years

New Years...

I don't know if I have ever made (or kept for that matter) New Years resolutions... I sometimes feel that it would set me up for failure. In the past, I have taken care of myself pretty well, so I never felt the need for a HUGE change. 

This year, I have been frantic, stressed, and busier than ever before. My self-care has dipped... so this year (and more specifically, this semester), I am going to work on healthier habits.
I shared my original post here about my resolutions during the first of the month, but now that I am back in school, I wanted to add a few updates.

Healthier Habits for me include:


1. Exercising three times a week.
I am working out my schedule to figure out what days are best. I am such a creature of habit, so it'll take a little bit to adjust to a new routine.


2. Read the Bible more
I am hoping to start a devotional and spend more time in prayer. Anxiety about a test, a job, a huge project can get the best of my attitude... This is a great map for handling those situations with grace. ***Update, I have already fallen behind on this one, and looking for a devotional to get back on track, PLEASE feel free to leave me your suggestions below.

3. Less Screen Time
I suffer from a busy mind. I always am on the go. When I sit down and "relax" my phone is often in my hand. I need to let go of the need to "be on" and work on being present in the moment.
***Update: This one has happened accidentally. I have been on social media less and less because I don't have the time during the day to scroll through it like I used too. I find this a hard balance because I am trying actively to grow my blog, yet I don't want to spend all my down time on my phone,  or laptop. Balance is a hard thing!

I can't wait to read everyone's New Year's Posts :)

  2. You need to download the She Reads Truth app!! It's fantastic and very solid. The Lent study begins February 10! I'm doing the Genesis study right now, and I've done a lot of their other studies.
