Back in October I read about half of High Performance Habits. It got a little heavy, and it was best I come back to it another time. That time is now! I picked up where I left off and timing for me is much better! It is a great book and I am learning new habits to help propel my business and life.

Think and Grow Rich, this is an old school personal development book. It was really good and brought a different way of thinking. I knock out a book per month, and this one didn’t disappoint.
Currently reading Anxious for Nothing and dang, it’s good and just what I needed right now! This one will be ongoing for a few months since it’s the book we are currently reading for my bible study group!
5 Ways To Step-up Your Wellbeing This Spring
Spring time always brings a sense of refresh and renew over here! Lots of new energy coming out of winter. The flowers are blooming, sun is shining and we are living our best lives with the longer days!
A lot of times we are conditioned to think we need to “spring clean” every area of our lives or make drastic changes when this time of the year rolls around. We actually are better served when we make small changes that can become a lifestyle of healthier habits. I am a big believer in making small, actionable shifts in our daily activities to create habits that will last a lifetime!
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
There are a couple of things that are non-negotiable for me, sleep and routine. They set you up for success and set the tone for all areas of life. Every single morning looks almost identical for me.
My morning routine actually starts the night before, and I am not even going to tell you it is easy…but no phone for at least 30 minutes before lights out. We are all guilty of mindless scrolling, and it’s the biggest time waster ever. I follow this into my morning. I want to be a dictator of my time, not a reactor. Plus, I want to make the most of my time and be as productive as possible.

I am actually not currently reading a book at the moment, but rather listening to The Psychology of Winning for the second time, yes, it’s that good. If you are wondering what all I have read this year, check out this post. You know how I feel about positive input, every single day. Do it, you can change who you are and what you are by what you consume.
Let’s talk books
Truth be told I have never been a “reader.” I only really started enjoying it in late 2017. My problem was that I never could find ones that intrigued me and that I could connect with, or that I wanted to spend my time on. I have never enjoyed reading for as long as I can remember. TEB cringes at the thought of me never wanting to read Harry Potter. Um, no thank you, no time for that. One of my goals for 2018 was to read one book each month. I am happy to report, smooth sailing so far.
I like books that are going to help me be a better person. Ones that will help me be a better wife, friend, daughter, and leader. Positive daily input matters so so much.

Dennis Waitley: The Psychology of Winning I am actually listening to this for the second time. This is an incredible self-development book. You win or lose in life. The game of life is the biggest most important game you can play, because you are never going to get it back. Whenever you hear (or read) something over and over, and internalize it, it becomes your subconscious and part of who you are. Same reason I love daily affirmations! This is a must!

Brendon Burchard: High Performance Habits Yes, you guessed it, another personal+professional development! I just can’t help myself! If you ever catch me over on stories, you probably know how important that I believe feeding your mind on a regular (daily) basis is. I think those little daily deposits add up over time, and that is when goals+visions begin flowing.

Each month you can expect a list of things that I am currently loving. Hopefully by sharing these things will help you find something new to listen to or read, and maybe even a new recipe! Speaking of recipes, did you see my fav brussel sprout dish?!
