Last week I invited/challenged you to set goals for yourself this summer, to create a Giddy Summer To Do List, to ensure the upcoming months are full of giddy and productive activities! Some people may have experienced ‘to do’ lists in a negative way before. They may have left you feeling overwhelmed to admit everything there is to do or feeling depressed because you may not check off all of the duties. Forget all that! The Giddy Summer To Do list is all about focusing on what you GET to do. You have options, you have opportunities, this is a GOOD thing! I’ve been working on mine and am ready to share them with you, just in case you need a little extra inspiration.
I gave away my copy of The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin last week after writing about it. The well organized categories that helped her find happiness and inspired others to do the same are what the Giddy Summer To Do List is based on.
Alli’s personal Giddy Summer To Do List:
VITALITY: 1) Join The Woodlands Yoga Pod, try a new class each week. 2) Beat my childhood chin up record-11 chin ups! 3) Play my awesome gold keyboard 5x a week.
