Hello friends, it’s a cold and wet January morning here in Utah. But, it is much warmer than it has been. Right now it is 21 degrees Fahrenheit. Izzy is snoring softly as he sleeps in his cozy bed under my desk. Everything is quiet in our home, hubby is working downstairs in his chaffice ( chair + office) and the only sound I hear is the clicking of my keyboard and the soft hum of the computer.
My morning tea is warm and comforting, and it is easy to imagine at this moment, a world at peace. A world without wars, illness, cruelty, hatred, bigotry, and negativity. Right here at this moment, my thoughts on January are peaceful ones.
For many January is the ideal month to make resolutions, organize, refresh, remake and reassess our home, health goals, and more. I’m right there with you. A new year offers the opportunity to move forward with a new perspective, to meet new challenges, and finally update my address book.
Changes are coming to Katherines Corner too. Watch for Katherines Angels.
Thoughts On January
ORGANIZE– Consolidate all your “to do’s” into an easy to read and realistic checklist.
Don’t move clutter from one room into another. Organize one room at a time and make labels!
Consider storing things in the place you use them. For example- I have a basket by the printer that holds, ink, a bag with used ink cartridge (to be recycled), and printer paper.
HEALTH– Although we should take care of our health January through forever. January is the time many of us start new health regimens. Hubby and I are determined to lose our “Covid Weight”. We started a low carb diet and I have made a few changes to my daily exercise routine and hubby will be starting one.
REWARD– one more thing to add to my thoughts on January. When you achieve your goals no matter how big or small, reward yourself. Maybe a long soak in a bubble bath, quiet time to read a book, meditate, pray, or do nothing at all. Or one of my favorites, do a happy dance, feel proud, and enjoy the feeling you have when you complete something on your “To Do” list.
