February Goals

February Goals

I love February. It’s the best month, and not just because it’s my birthday month. February is great for all the following 10 reasons and probably more I can’t think of right now.

  1. It’s short
  2. It contains a half-term (which I understand is only good when you work in educational environments)
  3. It starts to get more sunny and less rainy
  4. It starts to get darker later
  5. You still get to enjoy wintery things but without the depression of January or the pressure of December. HELLO HOT CHOCOLATE!
  6. It’s awards season (I know, I know, but I love them, and all the dresses are so pretty ok?)
  7. It’s fashion week season
  8. Bank balances are normally recovered from the shock of Christmas so people are willing to socialise again.
  9. Shops (finally) get rid of the dregs of their sales, and get in all the new stock.
  10. It’s Valentines Day – Which only make’s me happy because it means it’s my birthday the next day! Woo!

Yes, every year we fit all of that fun into just 28 days (yes I know it’s 29 this year but it’s still a good achievement in my opinion).

So to celebrate my favourite month of the year I’ve set myself a few goals, and try and create some habits for myself that I think will make me a better, healthier, and happier person.

Yoga  Do yoga at least 3 times a week. I neglected my fitness regime in about October last year – and it’s only once did a home yoga video after a good few months off that I realised how much both my mind and body had missed the practice. I will be back on it, and sticking with it for February. Hopefully.

Water  Drink. More. Water. It’s as simple as that really. I probably only get about 500ml of the good stuff in me each day and that’s if I’m trying really hard. I’m just not very good at being thirsty. So rather than jump straight in and aim for the two litres – I’m going to start by making sure I’m getting at least one litres a day. Baby steps and all that.

Try   I’ve found myself becoming a bit lazy about trying to find work in January. I don’t know if it’s because I don’t feel like I need anything else on my plate at the moment, or because I am enjoying having a bit of spare time. But January is over now and it’s time to get productive. In my industry you only get work if you look for, so my plan is to spend at least an hour of each day looking for and applying for work.

Books  in 2015, I only completed one book. one whole book in one whole year. How shameful is that. On the plus side in January I have already finished three. I am on one hell of a reading roll, and I don’t want to get out of the habit again so I’m determined to finish at least one book this month. Maybe two. But I don’t want to be too ambitious now do I?

    I’m with you on the yoga! I was doing really well at the beginning of last month, but then I got ill and didn’t pick it up again… Three times a week seems like an achievable goal. xx

    • Yes It’s all about making it a habit – and the second your out of it, you forget! I’m hoping three times a week will be enough to make it a habit – but to be honest, I haven’t found the time yet this week and it’s already wednesday! Eek! xx

    Great post! I love reading these kind of posts because they make me very motivated as well! I really need to read more! I want to read more books on taboo subjects and feminism but I wouldn’t know where to start x

    • Caitlin Moran is a good place to start for that How to be a Women, and (the only book I read last year) how to build a girl are brilliant Feminist books! xx

  • Ohhh hey birthday buddies, mine’s on the 19th 😀 hands up for the February kids ???? I definitely should do more yoga as well … whoops.

    • Ahhh February birthday’s are the best birthdays! xx

  • It is SO hard to get motivated – especially when you are out of the habit! Keep going gurl! xx

    I usually hate February but half term makes up for it!!

    I definitely need to “try” more in all areas of my life, I think. Best of luck meeting your goals!

    • Thank you! It’s a weird feeling when you think you could be ‘trying’ more but I think we also need to cut ourselves some slack sometimes are just enjoy the ride! xx

  • I like these goals 🙂 I think I’m going to start myself with some monthly goals, I get to the end of my month and feel like I haven’t achieved anything!

    I know this post is a few months old, but hope you had a lovely birthday!

    • Thanks Kayleigh, i recommend setting goals as it can help you reflect on the good things that we forget so easily!
