Okay, so I have thought of four simple goals that I want to work this month. I know there are many habits I want to obtain, but for now I will be focusing on three things to work on. By doing these four things, it will give momentum to add more goals and habits to my routine. The best part is that these are really small changes into my routine.
Goal Number One
I want to complete a Sudoku puzzle* every day. I remember wanting to do this for a long time now. My Grandparents used to do one every day, in hope that it would help my Grandma with her memory since she has Parkinson’s Disease, which then progressed into dementia. She is doing alright now, but my Grandpa thinks that she isn’t going to get any better, so her not getting any worse is good. I was inspired by Grandparents to complete this one goal. I finished my puzzle today.
*There are logical puzzles where you have to place numbers 1 through 9 in each row, column, and box, without duplicating any numbers. It tests your patience and logical, but it can really calming and relaxing, at least that’s how I feel.
Goal Number Two
I would like to add 20 minutes into my day being more spiritual by practicing meditation and yoga. Although I would start by doing 10 minutes of yoga, and hopefully 10 minutes of meditation (practicing meditation at the beginning can be challenging, but once you start practicing more frequently, you start improving). I’ll try this one later tonight.
Goal Number Three
Set at least 30 minutes reading every day. I have been this, but it hasn’t been every day. If I read every day it wasn’t for 30 minutes like I had hoped. By reading for 30 minutes I would be spending less time doing something else, like watching TV. This habit will help me keep my mind active.
Goal Number Four
This one is going to be challenging, but my boyfriend and I are only going to have take away twice this whole month. Not only will this help us by spending less money, but it ensure that we are eating healthier. This goal ripples into other aspects of my life, too. And I am willing to share with you my recipes, too.
I am quite happy with these goals. I’m going to be documenting my goals in a bullet journal.
My blog posts are going to remain the same, but I was thinking about writing more personal posts. In order to do that I may be getting rid of Eckhart Tolle Fridays to accommodate writing more personal posts. But if everything those posts may return at a later date.
What are your goals and anything you wish to accomplish this month?
