January (2017) Goals
Clearly my blog has gotten off to a rocky start. Although I fully intended to blog all last week my year started off with a terrible cold, so c'est la vie and here I am in week two getting my bearings. Now I'm feeling much better and really ready to get my year off the ground so what better way then to start out with my monthly goals? Last month I managed to complete all 3 of my goals. I finished up school early in the month so I was able to stress less (Although my test is this month to get certified), I cooked way more at home then usual and I did a pretty good clean out of my wardrobe so I'm happy about my progress.
This month I want to focus more on goals that will start my year off positive.
1. First I want to write in my gratitude journal every day. I'm currently reading the Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod and he suggests writing in your journal in the morning. I like the idea of starting my day out grateful and so I've been trying to incorporate this into my morning routine. So far, so good. I want to continue this all month so it really becomes a part of my daily routine every morning.
2. Eat breakfast. I've never, ever been a breakfast person, aside from a cup of coffee. I know the studies, I know it's healthy, I know the importance for your mind and body to function better, I've just never had the time. Now that I do, I'm hoping to incorporate a healthy breakfast into my mornings.
3. Read every day. Even a few pages. Even 1 page. I want to get back into daily reading. There's just something about reading everyday that makes me feel sharper and my communication skills better. This might be all mental, but I definitely feel like I function on a higher plane when I'm reading often.
What do you guys have planned for the start of your year? How's January treating you so far? Let me know what your resolutions are, I'd love to hear them! XO
