So July is here and how many of us are prepared for it? Six months of 2017 have already passed YES! half of the year is over and honestly, I haven't really accomplished anything major. And I'm not proud of that. But anyway, what's gone is gone, we cannot help that. What we can help is to decide how we can spend the next six months fruitfully. Let's start with July and make most of it. What say?
After a lot of research and brainstorming I realized, we're all pretty similar than we actually believe. We all go through the same everyday problems, feel elated at similar incidents, miss office with a fake sick leave, stay up all night for no apparent reason and the list goes on.
So, here I've compiled a list of things that you must do in July to make it better, productive, fruitful and stress-free.
At the beginning of every month, make it a habit of uploading the photos from your phone to the cloud (iCloud, Google Drive, Amazon Cloud, Dropbox, etc.) or into your hard disk. Further, delete these pictures from your phone and free up the space on your phone.
Doesn't matter if you're married or single, the beginning of every month should be dedicated to discussing your family's finances and budget. Keep a check and make sure all your bills and credit card debts are paid off.
Sit with your calendar at the beginning of every month and highlight all the important days. A meeting, date, wedding to attend, no matter what it is, make sure you're prepared for it. The only way to be organized is to plan ahead.
Meanwhile, 4th July is around the corner, what are your plans?
Enjoy the American Independence day by going out (in case you're in America) to see those firecrackers with family and friends. You can also go out and hog at the various food stalls put up on this occasion.
Meet ups with families can't always be random, so if you look forward to getting dinner with family, plan it prior. Similarly, if you wish to catch up with your friends over cocktails or a movie, go ahead and call/text/email them in advance so you can spend some time with them. This will give you something to look forward to all month and free you from the last minute hassle!
All your appointments like that of a dentist's, hairdresser's etc shall be marked clear and upfront in your diary/calendar/phone whatever you prefer and use the most. This will help you in keeping up with truckloads of work without any stress.
Do you plan on watching Spiderman: The Homecoming this July?
In case you are still to watch the latest Spider-Man addition or it is still to release in your city, make sure you watch it this July. Also, look out for 'War for the Planet of the Apes' coming out on 14th of July.
Buy birthday and anniversary cards/gifts in advance so that you don't have to worry about it last minute. Also, this can give you time for choosing an appropriate gift and probably let you spend within the limits of your budget.
Choose any day of your choice and plan nothing for it. Just stay home, rest, do what you feel like. Calm yourself down and enjoy in solitude.
What do you think about adventure sports (life threatening ones too)?
This risky yet fun filled event would take place in Spain on 6th of July, 2017. If you're in the vicinity (and have the guts) you should definitely look forward to attending this.
Ironically, we all think that writing down every goal and every to-do for the entire month would be a shear time waste, it's extremely helpful. Write down bigger goals and then further break them into smaller ones and in this way, you'll start achieving more every month than normal.
Set small fitness goals for a month and measure your success at the 29th/30th day of the month. Note down carefully what you achieved and what you could not. Make a plan for the next month accordingly. Staying healthy and fit should be the highest priority of all of us
Budgeting your money before you actually spend it is the best way to spend less. Write down everything you need to spend money on in the next month: groceries, bills, gas, babysitter, school supplies, etc., and then calculate how much you will need to spend on each of those necessities. Add an additional amount to spend on extras like coffee, movies, eating out, or a new sweater. Voila! There's your budget. Now, try to stick to it!
Any GOT fans around here? Scroll down, right now!
For all the GOT lovers out there, this is probably the news of the month(or year). GOT season 7 premiere is on the 16th of July, 2017. Needless to say, you'll be up and waiting for this one.
Reading everyday reduces stress, increase mental stimulation, and expands vocabulary. So this month, pick up a book of your choice and read, only for 15 minutes if not more.
Have a happy July!;)
