Even though it's been almost a year since I stopped going to school full-time and started working full-time, I still seem to struggle with this whole work/life balance thing. April just got the best of me. It was full of weekend adventures, a work trip to Pheonix, eating out too much, and painting my kitchen pastel pink (kind of on accident but it's great so it's staying.) While I'll continue to embrace spontaneity, I also need to stay on track with a few things so back to the monthly goals lists to do just that.
Declutter my digital life
Does anyone else spend way too much time on their email, deleting ads from companies that somehow you've become subscribed to? This month, anytime I get an email that I would delete without opening, I'm going to unsubscribe or change my subsription settings. I've also recently been playing around with media notification settings on my phone in order to stay off it and be more mindful of what's going on around me.
Run 50 miles
I've been doing a bad job at staying in shape and I can't blame it on the dark mornings and nights of Seattle wintertime. I have mornings before work, and evenings after that I need to dedicate to be active both in my body and my mind. My most creative thoughts happen while I'm in movement.
Invest in a new camera lens
I need a new lens for an upcoming trip in the works. I've been shooting solely on a 40mm lens for over a year since my standard 18-55mm lens has stopped working. Any recommendations for a replacement?
Okay, folks, that's all for now. Here's to a proactive and productive May!
