Happy New Year, friends! Here’s a little video I made about the way I’m doing New Year goals this year.
This year, because of the reasons I listed in the video, I’m not going to do year long resolutions or goals. Instead, I’m taking this year in bite-sized month-fulls. This means that while there are areas of my life that I want to improve throughout the year, I don’t want to make goals that will take all year to achieve. I want to, instead, make goals that can be accomplished in a month.
So, I chose four areas of my life that I want to improve – Spiritual, Health, Home, and Online/Writing, and then I have a fifth Bonus category to add something else I might want to accomplish. Then, for the month of January, I chose a goal to achieve in each area.
So, spiritually, I want to start a “Conversations with God” journal which is a little bit of a looser version of a combination prayer and gratitude journal. I want to write in this journal every day this month.
For health, I want to incorporate strength training three times a week into my workout schedule. I’m going to use an app called Sworkit to help me accomplish this goal.
For home, I’m going to clean out our ‘catch-all’ coat closet downstairs, inventory and organize what’s in there, and purge what we don’t need.
For online/writing, I’m going to try to blog every day this month. Instead of doing three videos and three blog posts a week, I’m going to focus more on writing posts this month and incorporate video here and there.
And for my bonus goal, I want to volunteer with the SPCA twice a week. I know that I will have to step back from this organization if and when I get pregnant, so I want to dedicate time to the SPCA this month especially.
What are some goals that you have made this year or this month? If you have written a blog post about it, please share a link down below!
