It’s the first of April and I think this year in particular there won’t be too many people playing April Fool’s Jokes, do you? April is a birthday month as my daughter, grandson and running friend celebrate their special days. April is a beautiful time where I live on the Gold Coast. The mornings and evenings are crisp and cool and the days are still warm and sunny (most of the time).
A new month brings new opportunities and new beginnings but let’s close out and review March before we start the new month.
Do you take time to review your month? It’s amazing sometimes to see what you’ve actually done with your time. Here’s what I got up to.
On the Blog
Looking back I wrote quite a few posts during March about a variety of topics.
I started the month in the kitchen for What’s On Your Plate? Challenge? My contribution was an easy 3 course dinner menu that I had made for my darling for Valentine’s Day (although we don’t actually celebrate it). You can find the recipes in my blog post An easy 3 course dinner menu to impress.
We celebrated International Women’s Day and I wrote about #BreaktheBias of Ageing and Stereotypes IWD 2022
For our What’s On Your Bookshelf? Link Up I thought I was pretty clever tying this in with theme of International Women’s Day. As our online bookclub has finally finished the complete works of the Bront
International Day of Happiness put the focus on ‘Choose to Help’ this year, so I shared some information on what International Day of Happiness is and how we can not only help others but ourselves. ‘Choose to help’ on International Day of Happiness. I also signed up for the free 10 day Action of Happiness. Each day I received an email with a prompt to find joy or happiness for that day. I’ll be sharing some of these ideas in future blogs.
I reviewed my WOTY ‘BE’ for our WOTY monthly link up and was happy to report that I am still ticking the box of living with the focus on my Word of the Year. You can read the many ways I was ‘BE-ing’ in my post BE-ing March WOTY Update
I started a health and wellness challenge with some friends. We workout together twice a week and decided to make some personal goals around our health and wellness for 30 days. I’m hoping we continue as it really helps to stay on track. This prompted me to resume Wellness Wednesdays on the blog and the first post asked a question: How are you taking control of your healthy and well-being?
On the Podcast
Are you a limb dweller or a trunk dweller? Recognising who you are to live a fulfilled life was a fabulous podcast with my guest Sandy Stamato. This episode really resonated with many of you.
In the Micro Mondays episodes I discussed:
Overcoming guilt when life is going well for you
5 strategies to drop the labels and start living life your way
I hope that you enjoy reading my thoughts on ways we can live well and enjoy life. What was your favourite post for the month?
What will April hold? I’m not sure but I do know that my goal is to make each day count and enjoy living life my way.
Have a fabulous April!
