August Rise Moms Challenge Calendar

Hello, August! Can you believe we’re already wrapping up summer?

My older 3 boys just started back to school and I am anxious to get back on a schedule and back to an easy to follow routine to help keep my life and home in order.

August RiseMoms Challenge Calendar

To kick start the transition to back to school, I’ve been plotting and planning little daily challenges to help me stay on track with the things that are important in my life.

This monthly challenge focuses on one aspect of your life to make the most of each day of the week:

  • Sunday – Spiritual / internal self
  • Monday – Weekly home blessing
  • Tuesday – Connecting with your children
  • Wednesday – Self-care
  • Thursday – Home task
  • Friday – Relationship with spouse and others
  • Saturday – Connecting as a family

With these day-of-the-week themes, I created a calendar with a simple daily task to challenge you, and me! Because let’s face it, I need some external accountability most of the time.

I wanted a simple daily task that would, for the most part, take less than 15 minutes. This excludes Monday’s when I do the majority of my household cleaning. That day didn’t need any extra tasks.

So how do you join in on the challenge? You can print a copy of the August calendar and put it somewhere easy to spot. You can adjust any challenges, as may be needed, to fit your own life and family situations.

I’ll be sharing the daily challenge on my and Instagram @amomstake accounts. Follow along with me there to share your own successes, failures, and pleas for that extra ounce of motivation we sometimes need.

I’ve dubbed this challenge #RISEMOMS as it’s all about the little things that can lift us up, and help us feel accomplished in the sometimes rut of motherhood.

I’m also aiming to finish the tasks early in the morning, to help set the tone for the rest of the day!

Little things add up, and they can really make a difference, so join with me this month (and look for my September calendar to follow). I can’t wait to see how these little challenges help your home and personal lives.

Who’s in?
