After reading Gretchen Rubin’s “The Happiness Project” I have decided that in my self-development journey this year I will begin my own project. It is really a mix of Gretchen’s ideas, Habit Stacking, Miracle Morning and internal reflection. But in the spirit of vulnerability and sharing, here’s what I am working on this month…
Happiness Project Month 3
What makes me happy, not what should make me happy.
March 2018 – Motherhood
Focus: Find and foster joy in my relationship with my children.
-Spend 5-10 individual minutes with the kids every day.
-1 activity weekly with kid(s)
I know, there are less resolutions this month… but I have 3 kids! Cut me some slack!
Take at least one photo of a kid each day – as a former photographer, I am ashamed to say that I really stink at documenting moments and I vow to get better at this.
Spend 5-10 minutes with each kid, every day – Giving them a little bit of uninterrupted, quality time to talk and let them know I care about them and what goes on during the day while we aren’t together.
1 activity weekly with kid(s) – ideally – one kid will get an activity/2 hours or more with me each week with one week being with all three kids. Not sure how I will work that into the schedule. But Spring break is this month, maybe I can use that to my advantage.Jamie Koppi - The College Ungrad
