Wait what?? HOW on Earth is it February already?
Well actually, I’m so happy January is over, as it brought mock exams, bad weather and an overall average month for me. With that in mind, I’ve decided to set some goals for myself for February, to try and brighten up the year…
Workout- It feels so clichéd saying this, but really it is an important goal. We all slack over Christmas, and I know for me this continued into January as well. To quote Legally Blonde ‘Exercise gives you endorphins, and endorphins make you happy’. I think a positive outlook on life makes everything appear better, so this is only an added bonus. I really want to go for a run everyday, but as I’m sitting here now looking out the window while I write, the weather is reminding me that it’s not a good idea. Perhaps I should walk before I run, and take that saying quite literally and get out everyday, more than just walking to work.
Read Everyday- Although it is important to keep your body healthy, you have to stimulate your mind too. I’ve really struggled to get into a book so if you have any recommendations, leave them below in the comments, any genre!
Keep Updating my Blog- I’ve had many different blogs over the years and nothing has quite felt right. I’ve tried to follow the trends too much rather than just writing about what I want, which means the blog hasn’t been ‘me’. That’s why I’m starting afresh, with a whole new name, as a fresh start.
Have Me Time- I get so caught up in life, with work and college and everything else that I never take time to stop and relax. I’d like to take some time each day to do this, whether that’s a nice bath at the end of the day, or perhaps some time with a book, thinking back to goal 2.
Save Money- I am the absolute worst person for buying loads of random stuff I don’t need, and spend any free time I do have browsing (and buying) things online. I either send it all back which is just a waste of time, or keep lots of things I don’t wear or use, that just end up taking space I don’t have.
Declutter- Everything is going! No but seriously my wardrobe needs a huge sort out, and that is a necessity. I’m going to sort out a bag of stuff and take I to a charity shop, at least the I won’t feel guilty throwing anything away.
So that’s a wrap! Thank you for reading and I hope you return for next time. Posts every Monday and Thursday.
P.S. Legally Blonde is a great film, 100% recommend it!
