Plan for Simple
Here we are - it’s 2019!
I’m beaming big huge Happy New Year vibes at you. I hope you are relaxing with your family.
In our Simplify week to kick off the year we are starting with something that might have made me break out in hives a few years ago, but now I recognise that the only way to create change is to plan for the change and commit.
So let’s talk about planning for a simpler year.
In order to do this, I’d like you to consider some important questions. I’ve created a Planning for Simple worksheet for you write out the answers. Download it here.
Let’s get real with ourselves and spend time mapping out exactly what simplifying means to us.
Of course - share your answers inside the Facebook Group!
Can’t wait to hear what you come up with.
If you or anyone in your household leaves home to work or go to school - we have some cracker new recipes for you to experiment with.
For those parents of school ages children I’m sure we all agree that the criteria is:
Healthy and wholesome
Easy to prepare
OK - you get the drift!
Katherine has created amazing recipes to add to lunchboxes this year that cover all the criteria and we can’t wait for you to try them!
Rice Bubble and Seed Slice
Fruit Filled Pockets
Cheesy Rice Balls
Check them out and also make sure to download your January Meal Plan.
Experiment a little while you’re on a break (if you are?). Get a few new staple meal ideas under your belt for 2019.
And remember - have an egg, have a meal. We’ve been doing a fair bit of egg eating around here this summer between playdates, swimming sessions and chilling out.

Choose Your Word
A short video for you today explaining my favourite New Year ritual!
Each year I choose a feeling to help guide my decisions (sometimes it’s more than one word). I do this instead of writing goals.
I think about how I want to FEEL and allow that to be my focus. If you’ve completed Small Steps Back to You you’ll be familiar with this exercise - the New Year is a perfect time to reevaluate.
Watch the video where I explain and then use the list of feelings words to help inspire your choice. Don’t choose too many - four would be the maximum I recommend.
And of course - let us know what you choose in the Facebook Group!
Here’s a list of words to inspire you:
January Outstanding Member - Nicole Jenkins
Well, that’s January almost done….. WHAT!?
I am thrilled that you are here, and to be helping you shape YOUR awesome 2019. It won’t look like anyone else’s, nor should it. But my hope is that we’ll have kicked some common goals as a group. Things like speaking more kindly to ourselves, improving our family’s health by improving the food we buy and eat, moving a little more, saying YES to things that matter and NO to things that don’t.
But this week, we stop and celebrate.
I’d love to know a Small Step that you are celebrating from this month?
Reflecting on something positive from the month (or week, or day, or year!) has such a profound effect on the way we feel - it’s why there’s a dedicated CELEBRATE week each month.
And of course - we celebrate a superstar Small Stepper. This month it is Nicole Jenkins.
Nicole is a newer Small Steps Member and the team want to congratulate her on the small steps she’s taken. From sourcing local wholefoods and pantry staples, to identifying stories and working on her mindset, we’ve loved seeing her posts over the last few months. She is also a wonderful cheerleader to others in the group. Thank you Nicole, and keep up the Small Steps! The team will be in touch about your gift.
Finally, a quick reminder that our January Q & A is scheduled for this Friday 1st Feb at 10am AEDT (Melbourne). This is your chance to ask me anything - food, mindset, decluttering - nothing is off the table! Hit reply on this email to pre-submit your question. As always, if you can’t make it live the replay will be uploaded to the Vault for you.
I look forward to hearing what you’re celebrating from January in the Facebook Group.
