It’s the first school day of a new month. A great time to reflect and adjust.
The first month of school is in large part about establishing routines and baseline standards. My guess is you, like me, have strayed from your intentions as the routines have settled in.
A new month, a new opportunity to revisit your old goals. As you approach this week, recommit to the goals you set for yourself, and lean towards them. Hopefully the habits you’ve already built support that; if not, lean hard away from the habits you want to change.
We can feel like once a habit is established, it’s permanent. It’s not. It can change. Use the fresh start of a new month to make that change happen.
