Happy Summer!

Er, okay, summer technically started in June.

In my defense, it’s only just begun to heat up in my part of the world, so I’m still easing into the season.

But y’know what? Enough easing into things!

I have goals for myself this summer, so I’m jumping into July with a focused mind.

Here is my monthly dose of motivation; I hope you’ll find some inspiration for the month, too!

July 2023 Word of the Month

The word "Routine" over a light orange background.

My Word of the Month for July 2023 is: Routine.

After starting a new job last month, my previous routine got a bit shaken up.

It was time for a revamp of my schedule, and my primary focus for July is to settle into my new routine!

Re-establishing a healthy, consistent sleep pattern is especially important to me right now, as is taking more time for myself at the start of the day.

It’s time to own my mornings again!

I’m still tweaking certain elements of my daily and weekly routines, but I’m done adjusting to my new job and ready to get back to a sense of stability moving forward.

If this is something that you’ve found yourself craving, too, I invite you to join me in establishing a good morning, evening, and/or general weekly routine!

July 2023 Song of the Month

My Song of the Month for July 2023 is: I Was Made For Sunny Days by The Weepies.

Since my morning routine is such a huge part of my focus this month, I picked a song straight off of my favorite morning playlist!

This cheery tune always puts me in a good mood, no matter the time of day (or state of weather).

On days when it’s extra hard for me to get myself out of bed before 8:00 AM, I turn to songs like this one to wake me up.

My Color of the Month for July 2023 is: Orange.

Keeping with my Song of the Month’s theme of sunny days, I’ve decided to go with orange as my mood-boosting color for July!

It’s fun, it’s funky, it makes me crave orange juice…

Hmm… I might need to run down to the store later and stock up on orange juice (pulp-free, of course).

Anything to make those mornings a little brighter!

How’s your 2023 going so far?

Are you staying motivated? What are your big plans for July?

Whatever the case, I wish you a fun-filled summer!
