Hi friends! As the calendar turns to April, we are greeted with sunshine, warmer weather, brighter colors on our lips, nails, and bodies, and the stark realization that 25% of the year has already been marked off. Well, that list sure took a negative turn. But I am all about finding the silver lining in a situation, and here it is:

We still have 75% of the year left!

Around this time of year, I often find myself getting motivated to improve and change things up. I don’t know if it’s the extra Vitamin D or the clarity I get when my allergy medicine finally kicks in, but something about early spring just gets me pumped.

So I decided to take a look at my goals from January and reassess them, as well as think about any other goals I may have set for myself in the last 3 months or want to set now for the next 9 months of 2016.

Here’s what I’ve come up with for some April Adjustments:

  • Be active every day
  • Explore
    • Get outside
    • Hike
  • Continue drinking more than enough water
  • Be more consistent on the blog
  • Do more DIY/creative things
  • Purge my closet (again)
  • Organize my bathroom and makeup
  • Try new recipes

If you’re a resolution kind of person, then this is a great time to check yourself (before you wreck yourself? I’m sorry. How could I resist?), and evaluate the progress you’ve made thus far. Regardless of how well you have stuck with your goals, this can be a super beneficial step toward achieving your goals moving forward. It allows you to reflect on what has been working, what hasn’t been, and what changes you need or want to make. Even if you aren’t a resolution person, I think setting goals for all aspects of our lives is a great way to ensure that we are always striving to be the best version of ourselves. So no matter which end of the spectrum you fall on, I encourage you to take a few minutes and make some April Adjustments, and put your best foot forward for the 75% of the year we have left! Let me know what kinds of goals and adjustments you make in the comments below :)
