Day 7 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge

30 day challenge

Hello lovelies! It's already almost the middle of the week, and the middle of August. Tonight's downright chilly, which is SO unlike the Augusts I'm used to. I'm here in my jammies with a cup of hot tea, and I'm about to write day 7 of the 30 day blog challenge.


"Which key tools will you turn to regularly to maintain your mindset and how will you use them effectively?"


And here are my simple answers:

- Meditate
- Art, art, art.
- Yoga.
- Free-flow journaling and writings.
- Earlier bedtime.
- Leonie Dawson's Create Your Incredible Year workbook and business e-courses.
- Inspiring books and blogs that I have all in one place.
- Time limits on social networking sites.

How will I use them effectively? By turning them into a daily routine. Once routine forms, everything flows easily and I don't have to force myself to do yoga instead of wasting three hours on Facebook, for example! This act of blogging every day is already forming part of my routine, and I'm feeling happier and more creatively energized just from doing that!

Social networking sites are a dangerous thing for me. I waste so many hours, somehow unable to peel myself away from the keyboard and stay away from Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr. It's kind of ridiculous. So having strict time limits on them will help me a lot, I believe.

Day 8 doesn't have a blog prompt, as Natalie has offered us a day of rest and reflection. I have so many ideas already that I'm SO excited to implement, thanks to this challenge! I can't wait to share it all with you :)

Blessings,
Mary

I definitely understand the time wasting on social networking. Once again, you inspire me to blog. To create. To live my life and to limit the social networking. I love tumblr, facebook, twitter and pinterest but time limits are such a good idea. I no longer wish to scroll mindlessly through posts.... I want to put more purpose in my online life. I do like sharing the inspirational things and will continue to do so but in smaller time frames. Your blog is wonderful!!
