Goal Setting for Kids


Choosing and writing down goals is important, but don't stop there! Once you've decided on the goals you want to focus on, you'll want to break each goal down into smaller steps or goals, so you have a clear idea of what is required of you, to get closer to achieving that final goal.

A great way to break your goals down is by using the SMART Goals acronym! 

SMART stands for:

Specific
Measurable
Attainable/Achievable
Realistic/Relevant
Time Bound

You can take a goal and ask yourself how to answer whether it is each of those things, and if not- how can you tweak it, to make it a "smarter" goal. Here are some ideas of how you can take your goal and transform it into a SMART goal:

Best Moon Palace Restaurants

Let's talk about the best Moon Palace Restaurants!

I recently posted about our return to Moon Palace Cancun, in Cancun, Mexico with our kids. In that post, I shared photos of our room and the pools but today I want to share one of our favourite things about the resort: the food! The resort is very large and includes more restaurants than you could attend during a week-long stay, but here are the ones we visited and loved! (Some of which, we remembered from our first visit to Mexico, 6 years ago!

The resort is all-inclusive, so all food (including room service) is included with the price you pay to visit. This is one of our favourite things because it eliminates so much stress from making the decision of what to eat each day, and how much to spend! It's especially great with kids, to be able to say yes to lots of things without worrying about an extra cost!
