What I learned in February

 

Happy March 1st!

Honestly, I’m so happy it’s March. Even though February is the shortest month, man, did it feel loooong this year! I am so ready for a new month and for SPRING!

I recently discovered Emily‘s What I learned series and I want to join in this month! Thinking about all the things we have learned is a great way to reflect and see what we can take away from each new month.

5 things I learned in February:

  1. Tahini is delicious. I only ever used it for hummus. This month, I gave it a fair shot to shine on it’s own and I love it! I especially love it mixed with coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup. Dip some apples in that and you have snack time bliss!

2. If you wash the floors, juice will be spilled on it in less than an hour.  Probably even less time if you wash it on your hands and knees. It’s a law of parenthood.

3. Yoga is awesome! Okay, I already knew this one but I admittedly fell off the wagon since before Christmas. I declared February to be my month to get some movement in every morning. And it only took me 2.5 weeks to do it. But it feels amazing to stretch and move my body mindfully each morning.

4. We have too much stuff. I don’t like clutter and it seems no matter how much stuff we get rid of, we still have way too much. We have been trying to minimize for a while and it is a little better but we have a way to go. Full blog post on this subject in the near future!

5. Basing your daily activities on how you want to feel makes life better. I have been slowly going though Danielle Laporte‘s, The Desire Map. Have you read it? You should. It makes total sense to figure out how we want to feel and then do the things that help us feel how we want to feel.

So, there are 5 things I learned in February. Tell me something that you learned last month!

Talk soon,

Tina

  1. One big thing I learned in February was declaring something out loud helps you stay on track of goals. Guess it’s another way of looking at the power of the spoken word

    1. Yes! I definitely agree that when you say something out loud or make it public that those goals are more likely to be obtained. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love the idea of a what I learned series. I share things from time to time on my blog, but I like the idea of sort of a monthly recap. I love yoga as well and I also have too much stuff. I like to hold on to things and after helping my mother downsize I’ve learned to look at my things differently. It feels very freeing to get rid of clutter even if I spent a lot of money for it at the time. I’m learning to thank my things for the time I used them and if I no longer love them, let them go. The book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up addresses this concept. I haven’t read the Desire Map, but I’ve heard other people mention it and would like to read it. My problem is I have tons of books waiting to be read and every time I hear of one I order it and then it just adds to my stack.

    1. Thanks for sharing Dawn! I agree that it is very freeing to get rid of clutter! I’ve been wanting to read that book about tidying but I am exactly how you are-I have a lot of books in my stack that need to be read!

  3. Speaking of yoga…It’s my #1 stress buster. Pranayam calms me down like nothing else. It forces me to concentrate on my breathing pattern and everything melts away for next few minutes.

    1. Totally agree! Yoga is the best thing for me to release stress. I don’t want to think what kind of person I would be without it. 🙂 Thanks for your comment!
