This year I wanted to set monthly goals instead of writing New Year’s Resolutions. Last month I focused on improving my own health, my goals being to practice yoga daily and to take an online course on living a healthy life. The two of these ended up pairing perfectly. The course helped me to see that living a healthy life starts from the inside out, taking care of my mental health before worrying about food, water, and exercise. By doing yoga every I was able to meditate on what I was learning, give myself time to unwind, and perform gentle movements. Movements which allowed me to truly connect my mind and body.
Daily yoga will continue to be apart of my life. Although, it seems to have out grown its place as a daily goal, even more than a habit, it is part of my lifestyle. Caring for my self first is something I had to learn how to do and I will try my hardest to keep it a priority.
This month I am switching my the focus of my energy into productivity. As the days are starting to become longer I am feeling more energized any excited to take on new projects.
My February Goal is to Create
- Create experiences. My 24th birthday is tomorrow. I spent the morning reading the post I wrote for my birthday last year when I decided to decorate my tiny house for myself, looking through my photo post of 22 things I did at 22, and then looking through my phone to decide if I should make a similar post for things I did while 23. I did so much more than I could remember, looking back at photos it seems like it all happened only yesterday. I want to continue to share my time with friends and family creating meaningful experiences. Which leads to my next goal.
- Create new blog content. I want to create memories, but I also want to share them. This month I want to focus my time on writing content for this blog. I want to share my story and create 2-3 posts a week.
- Create teaching materials. My mom and I have a shop called Pedersen Post on Teachers Pay Teachers. My goal is to create 2 new resources a week. In the past has always been February has been our most exciting month centered around many Valentine activities!
- Create a new blog. I am excited to announce that we are starting a new teaching blog! The design is complete, we are still working to create content. My goal is to bring our website live this month. Name to be announced soon! Until then you can check out some of our Valentine activities!
