I’ve been away from my home for the past three weekends. First, I attended a women’s silent Ignatian Spiritual Exercises retreat, then on Columbus Day weekend, I spent time with extended family in Bailey Island, ME. This past Saturday, I was at a Schole Sister’s local retreat called Learning Well, with Cindy Rollins! So on Sunday, I reflected on some of the ideas I’ve taken in, made a practical plan of how I will implement my retreat resolutions, and I chose the books I plan to read in the next few weeks.
I’m toying with the idea of playing the Minimalism Game for the rest of October and for the month of November, as progress on my decluttering checklist has decreased. I did play the game for five days before my first retreat and I got rid of 114 items from my basement.
I also printed out a time log I found online, because it’s a super fun way to see how I’m spending my time, and it’s helpful when implementing new habits to see if they are realistic or not. And speaking of habits… I also printed out a new habit tracker. I created it for a 21 day period, with boxes to check off or shade for each habit, each of the 21 days. I type my habits in the left column and fill in days of the week and dates along the top. A blank one is shown below.
