WELL, I didn't set the bar very high for my April Things, as you may have noticed. In fact, there was only one item on that list of things that I resolved to do, and that was to RELAX. In March, I had some major anxiety flare-ups, and I really wanted to take the month of April to try to correct those tense feelings as much as I could.
I drank way, way less coffee. I concentrated on exercising a lot, and drinking a lot of water. I also set my mind to eating more healthfully, incorporating as many whole foods into my diet as I could.
And, you know, it did work. I felt so much better. I have felt a lot more relaxed, more present, and not so worrisome and distracted. I plan to continue down this healthy path, and I plan to get in with a doctor soon as well, just to check everything out and make sure everything is in balance.
So, what do I plan to do in May? Well, I'll tell you...
1. Drink between 60 & 80 ounces of water every single day.
2. Keep up the healthy lifestyle: rigorous workouts, eating healthfully.
3. Keep reading.
4. Clean the house & keep it in tip-top shape for the entire month.
5. Get back on track with blogging.
I think five is a good number of things to focus on for 31 days, don't you? I think it's probably best to keep monthly goal lists as short & concise as possible, you know, so that they are actually do-able, and you're not setting yourself up for failure and disappointment. Best to stay away from those things, I'd say.
Want to see my other things? They're all here.
