February has arrived. Now is the time to reflect on how the previous month went for you. Were your actions in alignment with your goals? How will you modify your goals for this month?
January was a whirlwind for me. I mourned the loss of two grandmothers, was (and still am) in the process of buying our first home, and finished it off by being quite ill. With that being said, I have so much to be grateful for. I am lucky to have a supportive and loving family, the ability and finances to purchase a home, and an understanding workplace that doubles as my doctor’s office.
I took the first month of this year to focus on bettering myself. This is one thing that I plan to continue throughout the next eleven months. I have almost completed my first self-help book of 2019 and it has definitely helped to recenter my life.
My habit tracker for January consisted of blogging, reading, exercise, cleaning, meditation, hydration, sleeping 8 hours, clean eating, photography, and pampering myself. After evaluating my performance for the past month, I have adjusted my tracked habits depending on things that I either did really well and don’t feel necessary to track or did poorly in and find it not a priority at this time. This month I am going to focus on blogging, reading, doing 1 minute of planks per day (to help strengthen my back from previous injuries), hydrating, pampering myself, making our bed, doing dishes, clean eating, meditating, and not using my phone until after 8am. I am hoping that these things will become habits when I prioritize them for this month.
I am determined to make 2019 the best and most positive year yet. Sure, it’ll take some hard work, but it will be worth it.
So reflect on the past month, plan for this month, and keep on moving. You can do anything you put your mind to.
