Did you catch our trip recap to Green Bay, Wisconsin from a few weeks ago? It by far has been my favorite thing this month!

November Favorites | amandabixler.comI seriously cannot get enough of this book by Brendon Burchard. Everyone’s favorite girlfriend Rachel Hollis recommended it about 1,000 times and I’m so thankful I picked it up. In it, Burchard systematically walks through the intentional and thoughtful habits that high performers have put in place, habits like seeking joy, taking good care of yourself, cultivating gratitude. I love it because it’s incredibly practical yet also inspiring and motivating.

IMG_2382Ya’ll, Walmart Grocery pickup is a GAME. CHANGER. Grocery shopping is simply not one of my most favorite things in the world. I actually should add to to my list of things I don’t do. It tends to stress me out, I’m not great about sticking to a list, and I inevitably forget something. For the longest time, we’ve gone with the habit that I will meal plan, make the grocery list, and do the actual cooking (all things I love), while Andrew does the actual shopping. But over the past couple of months, we’ve been working hard to simplify our lives and streamline some things so I looked into a grocery pick up service. Walmart’s is free (while others do charge a service fee) and all I have to do is add stuff to my cart throughout the week either online or through the app, choose my pickup time, and then either Andrew or I show up to have our car loaded with our groceries. They even have an option on the app to check-in when you’re on your way so you don’t even have to call when you arrive. Genius. (Not sponsored – trust me, Walmart has no idea who I am. But if you want to try it out, click on my referral link and you’ll get $10 of your first order.)

5 Takeaways from "The Wellness Project" | amandabixler.com

FIVE TAKEAWAYS FROM “THE WELLNESS PROJECT”

Does anyone else get incredibly stressed out when a new topic of health or wellness sprouts up? I mean, I love essential oils as much as the next girlfriend, but sometimes the thought that every. single. thing. in our home could be incredibly toxic and cause cancer – it’s too much sometimes, right? I want to live a healthy life, make wise choices, drink enough water, buy fair-trade, basically do all the things. It leaves me feeling something like this…

7 Things I Choose To Do Regularly | amandabixler.com

7 THINGS I CHOOSE TO DO REGULARLY

This is a post from the archives.

Since moving to Colorado last year, A & I have been on a journey of simplifying – simplifying our schedules and our commitments in an effort to live a slower and more intentional life. Not one that is full of unnecessary busyness and stress, but one full of joy and contentment, adventures and rest.

Through this process, I created a list of 7 things I don’t do (and encourage you to do the same!) as a way of upfront saying these are things I won’t give in to. I have found that if we are able to clearly define our boundaries and put them in place ahead of time, it is much easier to say “no” in the moment as opposed to being tempted to give in, overcommit, or feel guilty for not doing something enough.

27 WAYS TO OVERHAUL YOUR DAY

This is a post from the archives.

If we aren’t careful, life can get away from us. Culture can demand that we are constantly connected, always say “yes” when asked for another commitment, and run ourselves ragged. But what if that wasn’t how we had to live? What if there was a better way to intentionally organize our days that allow more breathing room and opportunities to hear and respond to God? Today I’m sharing twenty-seven simple and tried-and-true tips that I regularly use to break the cycle of busy and overhaul my day.

Podcasts You Should Be Listening To

MY FAVORITE PODCASTS

Is anyone else absolutely obsessed with podcasts? I’ve had an on-and-off relationship with actively listening to podcasts over the past several years. There are seasons where I feel like I’m driving a lot (hello 2 hour commute to school!) where I listen frequently but then summertimes or other seasons where I tend to listen more to music or devote my attention to other things. However, since graduating from school a couple of months ago and adjusting to full-time work at my church with higher leadership expectations, I have found myself desperate to digest as much extra information as I can. It also doesn’t help that I’m a nerd and love learning new things 😉 Read More »

Finding Rest and Why It's About the Heart | amandabixler.com

FINDING REST: IT’S ABOUT THE HEART

Do you ever feel stuck, unmotivated and overwhelmed? Tempted to give in to the pressures around you and say yes to just one more thing, even though you really don’t want to do it? Or what about those “shoulds”? Like, well I “should”sign up and volunteer for (yet another) charity and I “should” super duper deep clean my home every other day and I “should” work later in the evening so my boss doesn’t think I’m a flake?
