Anti-Procrastination Weekly Update

Anti-Procrastination Weekly Update


You will notice there are no “new obsessions” below this week. I think that is due to this mindset I’ve found myself having this summer – minimal, minimal minimal. Right now my new obsession is to get rid of the unnecessary. I have 5 bags of stuff, packed into my trunk to be unloaded at our local thrift store.

It has been a bit crazy adjusting to a new summer schedule, but I keep self- talking, reminding myself to slow the mind in the midst of busy summer schedule. It really works, this self-talk. Often it comes with a deep breath which automatically slows and my eyes open to all the amazing blessings that surround me. I then find my thankful.

I’m getting into a summer rhythm of working on this blog from 6:30-noon, then I turn my attention to my teens and their needs for the day. Today their need is to be with friends and go to Grandpa & Grandma’s po0l, and boy does that sound good to me! My car will soon be filled with giggling teen girls, pool towels and ice cream. Hello summer!

Ongoing Obsessions

Kindle Fire

This ongoing obsession with my Kindle Fire is not letting up. I especially love using it in the evenings when tucked in bed. It’s like my own perfect sized, personal television. Before I indulge in watching Netflix, Amazon Prime shows, or my fav YouTube Channels,   I make sure I read at least a chapter or two of whatever book is on my Kindle. I love using the same device to both read and watch.

Essential Oil Diffuser

Still using it daily and love it! The Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser by AromaSoft is amazing for getting the scent out into larger rooms. It is priced very reasonably and works so well! After buying 4 other diffusers, I did some research, read a ton of reviews, and bought this one. I’m so happy I did!  My most used oils are these 2: Sunshine Spice Synergy Blend for daytime; Good Night Synergy Blend for nighttime.
