It’s been a long time since I last [and admittedly for the only time so far] posted goals for a month. Knowing I’ll be more accountable to stick with those I’ve made, though, I decided to share mine again. A new month, a new chance to make them work. right?
So other than applying for and hopefully finding a new internship placement here’s what I’m striving for this month:
Get more sleep
As well aware as I am of its benefits I’ve been slacking on sleep more than ever before the past weeks. This is the one change I’m assuming to make the biggest difference in my overall well-being. Seven hours a night would be great, eight perfect.
Read at least two books
Fall is the season for curling up in bed with a good book and after two disappointing reads lately I’m on the lookout for new ones. Feel free to share any great ones you’ve read lately!
Dry brush every day
Inspired by Amanda I finally invested in a brush last week [note: they're not that expensive but I'd just forgotten] and have been using it every day since. It has felt good already and I’m curious to see whether I’ll experience the differences she mentioned, too.
Be more creative in the kitchen [again]
Once more I’ve found myself stuck in a food rut which in itself might not be that awful. But being honest with myself I know that one of main reasons is still my fear of change and need of safety. But sticking largely with the same ‘safe’ options gets tiring after a while. Therefore my plan is to try at least four new recipes a week [three would be the standard number to use here but it’s an uneven one and you know how much I like these. Not.] – and hopefully create some myself, too.
Write surprise letters
It’s amazing how happy something as simple as a letter can make others. It’s true at least for myself. So to bring a smile to smile to some people’s faces I’ll get out pen and paper. Actually, it’s a win-win situation because I genuinely enjoy going the old-fashioned way.
Let’s see how I’ll be doing!
Happiness inducing today: A nice uplifting phone chat with my mum.
What are your goals for September if you made any?
Have you ever tried dry brushing?
Do you still write letters [regulary]?
