Bonjour mes amours! So with my promise intact.
Here is my 1st official scheduled post of January!
Now for the big exciting New Years Resolutions..late, but better late than never right? So with that in mind and knowing the whole shebang about counting on others to keep myself on track with goals, here is my goal for the year of 2018!
- I will join the gym and go at least 3 times with minimum 30 minutes each time, doing at least 1 circuit.The reason is simple. I have a job where I sit down for the majority of the day. This can have bad side affects that include life shortening effects and stress inducing to bad postures etc. So to help my over all health I will actively use the gym.
- There is a giant stigma on mental health in some parts of the world, and then there is the huge growing demand on taking care of your mental health. You can have whatever opininion you want. I for one think it is one of the most important part of yourself to take care of in our modern day world. We’re so busy doing this or that that we don’t notice the small things passing by in our lives. This is not one of those lifestyle quotes but just what the reality is sadly, so I want to start meditating for at least 5 minutes every day. I’m definitely not underestimating the ability to think clearly and quietly for 5 minutes. Iknow I’m impatient. My goal is that by the end of 2018, I will be able to meditate effectively for at least 30 minutes in one sitting.
- I would have saved up for at least 6 months of emergency funds. I need to learn to save, plan and even manage my money correctly. Money is something we all need to learn about and have a healthy relationship with, after all money doesn’t make the world go around, and it definitely is not worth a person’s health but having a healthy financial plan for your life (eternity lasts only a second, and a second can last an eternity after all) is needed so you can grow to who you need to be and will become. There will always be some kind of unexpected event that will need your rainy day savings.
- Expand my mind. Wether it’s picking up the newspaper, that New Yorker magazine, or even an Elle or Natural Geographic magazine, I wan’t to know what happening out there. Let’s listen to podcasts, read new blogs, discover new music! The world is eons old, rich with such history, diverse with billions of people there is so much out there – smell, taste and ear your way around the world. Nature will take your breath away and architecture will bring you to tears; so explore, you will never run out of things to see and do. For the short time I’m here let’s hear what others have to say, see what they’ve seen and say our piece and leave our own marks for the future. Am I right?
So with that long rant on my Top 4 Goals of my 2018, I leave you. I know my writing is not that great. What can I say? I need to get back on that horse.
Have you anything cool on your list? Have you already started on your resolutions? Do we have something similar (I bet it’s the gym) and do you have something different? Is it something I would want to add to mine?
