We’re a couple weeks into 2017 now and I heard on the radio today at this point, 92% of people have already fallen off the wagon with their New Year resolutions.
That’s a quick 17 days and they’ve already either failed at making their goal or simply said, “Nope, I’m over it! Maybe next year.” Another little statistic that intrigues me is it takes 21 days to form a habit so beginning a new challenge for yourself, like working out or spending time reading your bible daily or even a quick walk with the dog in the mornings – that takes doing it 21 days consecutively before it becomes a habit or second nature in your routine.
Are you in the category of having fallen off the resolution wagon? Don’t be so hard on yourself if you are! Take a breath and realize, you still have plenty of time throughout this year to get those goals accomplished. I’m just here to remind you of that!
I want to make 2017 about being more spontaneous and embracing the adventures of everyday living with my husband and kids. We are creatures of habit over at The Kinch House and it’s easy to fall into the trap of our daily routine but I’m craving a little more fun. A little more times I wake up and pile everyone into the car and head to the zoo or even a morning out for breakfast instead of cereal and OJ at the kitchen island. It’s a goal of mine to engrave into my kids minds and hearts they were able to enjoy a fun day out and adventures with their mama going hiking or playing at the park over just lounging on the couch or doing chores around the house. That’s no fun! Who invented chores anyway?! 😉
Since that’s a little reminder I think all of us can use, I made a download for you! Desktop, iPad or iPhone, take your pick of blue or pink and slap it on your tech items to see daily as a fun way to get back into the grind of a New Year’s resolution and making it happen.
So CHEERS to 2017! May you find some adventure…
