Well, Clutchettes, we’ve made it to another week and while this one includes a holiday (yay Independence Day!), there’s still a few things we can squeeze in to make it just a little more interesting.
For the past few weeks, I’ve popped in every Monday to suggest a weekly to-do list of five things to try each week, and this one is no different. While you don’t have to do them all (or any, really), this list is just a handy reminder for us to try something different and add a little variety to our busy lives.
Go meatless: Pick one day this week to ditch meat in your meals. Not only is it healthier to cut down on your meat consumption, but you’ll also be doing something good for Mother Nature as well.
Get your money straight: For many businesses July marks the start of a new fiscal year. Now’s a good time to take a look at your finances and figure out where you need to make a few changes. Need budgeting tips and tricks? Try using Mint to track your finances and check out Daily Worth for inspiration.
Try a new ’do: I admit I get stuck in the same rotation of hairstyles, but summer is the perfect time to try something new. Need some inspiration? Hop on YouTube and watch hair videos until you’re ready to start experimenting.
Hang with the animals: This week go to a zoo, an aquarium, or your local beach to find out more about animal life and nature. Bonus points if you act like a kid and enjoy your day while you’re out there. Can’t been too serious, upset or stressed out around animals!
Phone a friend: We’ve gotten so caught up in our technology, our texting, tweeting, and Facebooking that many of us have never used our phones as, you know, phones. This week call a friend or family member and talk to them. You’ll be amazed at how connected hearing their voice will make you feel.
