The content below is normally exclusive to our monthly peptalk subscribers, but we wanted you to get a real taste so you could decide if you’d be excited to see it pop up in your inbox each month!
Our monthly peptalk is getting a refresh! I’ll share a series of random but hopefully really helpful tips, tools and resources for your month. As I was writing these, I was excited to share so many things I always want to share but honestly, don’t want to hop on Insta-stories every 5 minutes to share. I’d love to do this type of format every month but want to make sure it serves you. Reply back letting us know what you think!!
1. I learned this month that Instagram has a way to see how much time you spend on it each day. Click on your profile and swipe to the right. Click “Your Activity” to see your average and how much time you’ve spent on Instagram for the last week. You can even set a daily reminder to tell you when you’ve reached your limit. Instagram is soooo fun and great but only up till a point. I love being able to set a real limit so that it serves me well but doesn’t take over my life!
2. Always tell yourself this is the year you slow down and enjoy Christmas? I honestly think it’s become so common we say it effortlessly like “It sure is hot out!”, “Where did the month go?” and “The traffic is terrible!” But can I help make this year different? I wrote 12 days of prayers that are heading to email inboxes December 13-December 24. The hope? To help you reorient your mind, right where you need reorienting. Redeeming a potentially hurried email check and ending with a breath of prayer. You in? Sign up here.
3. Trying to create new habits for the new year? Check out James Clear’s book Atomic Habits.
4. I am determined to get better at taking photos of our family. Why? So we can capture the memories but also so I spend LESS time trying to get a great shot AND less time tending to thousands of mediocre photos. I watched a webinar with Kyle Schultz about taking good Christmas photos that was so helpful I signed up for his course The Photo Fix. It’s no longer available but he’s got some other great resources, some free and some paid!
