As I mentioned a few blog posts ago, I’m not a big believer in New Years Resolutions. I much prefer to set myself mini goals that I know I will be able to work towards and achieve that sense of accomplishment. I decided this year I would set myself some mini monthly challenges (it seems achievable now, but come back to me when I am back studying and working…but I have faith in me, so I shall push on! 😉
These mini monthly challenges will involve the following:
*Fitness Feb: This ties in well with the gym’s 6 week challenge – I make the commitment to workout 4 times a week at the gym, go for a run 2 times a week and of course walk Ted Balls (for those reading along at home Ted Balls is one of the nicknames for my dog Teddy).
*Minimalisation March: Minimisation all the way – minimise the amount of spending I do and take the opportunity to get rid of anything that “no longer serves me” or doesn’t “spark joy” as Marie Kondo would say, such as donating old clothes, books etc.
*Appreciation April: Each day write down 5 things that I appreciate, and that I am grateful for.
*Meditation May: To meditate everyday in the month of May. That’s 31 days of mindful meditation.
*Spend less September: To only spend money on the necessities – food and hygiene products, bills. No random crapola. No clothes, no mani’s or pedi’s, just the bare necessities…the simple bare necessities…Forget about your worries and your strife…(Bare Necessities, The Jungle Book).
*Net-Free November: Detox from social media! *Conditions apply* The only social media I will be able to use is for my business. All other forms will be logged out of for the month of November – good for the body and soul! Plus I will probably get more shite done…
Now clearly I have a theme going on here…using alliterations to create the challenges! If you have any ideas or suggestions for challenges in the other months that state TBA please let me know…Will I accept your challenge?
