Happy New Year!
Well, we made it. Barely. 2017 had it’s ups and downs. It was a shittastic display of love, betrayal, highs, lows, and torture. With the passing of my mother at the end of the year, it turned out to be a really shitty end of 2017. But the start of 2018 has been ok so far. I have a few things to look forward to.
I typically set my goal for the year. And I find that most of the goals fall by the way side. This year, I decided to make goals, by monthly. Monthly goals to get me through the year. I think this is going to provide a much better outcome. Some of the goals I have set for January include –
- Getting outside for at least 10 minutes a day. I find that since I work at home now, days can pass without me ever getting outside. This is not good for my physical or mental health.
- Drink at least 3 full bottle of water. I have a 32 oz water bottle that I carry everywhere. I want to make sure I am well hydrated.
- Get at least 15 minutes of meaningful physical activity everyday. That can be dancing in my room, crunches and push-ups, doing an exercise video, or anything else. I know 15 minutes might not seem like a lot, but for someone who has not been physically active in a few years I find that’s a good starting point for me.
- Post at least one blog post to all my websites every week. I have quite a few websites that I maintain. I want to be focused and update them often.
I have a few more goals as well. So far, so good. It is just the 5th though. But I am very optimistic.
