June is over already, can you believe it? For me, it’s been a good month with a few short holidays and the most beautiful sunny weather. I’ve started running again and spend my weekends in the sun. Not too bad! Now July’s here, my birthday month – I turn 24 in only a week. That’s why I thought it would be a good idea to make July a month to strive for slow living goals. I want to implement a few habits I should have started practising already and refocus on my goals for the year. But first, let’s recap my June goals:
+ Have a vegan day: This totally worked! I actually realised how much of what I eat is vegan anyway, so on days I wasn’t eating out/with friends a vegan day was no problem at all.
+ Switch off for one day a week: No comment. This didn’t happen at all. Maybe next month?
+ Turn my home into an urban jungle: Yes! I started growing my own avocado trees (thanks for the guide Siobhan!) and I got some more plants at the nursery. It’s really addicting, so I can’t wait to buy some more. I’ve also gotten into the habit of buying fresh flowers every week and it makes my home such a happy place.
+ Take ill-fitting clothes to the tailor: Didn’t happen. Soon, hopefully!
+ Make my own-iced tea: With the heatwave last week I definitely made some iced tea. Just very simple with earl grey tea and some lemon. Do you have any favourite recipes?
3 out of 5 – not too bad, right? And now: (more…)
