New month and a new university course for me!!
It feels like i am counting down the days left of 2017 even though i don’t know why… there is nothing special happening in 2018 so i don’t know why i am looking forward to this year ending. All i can say is that this year has flown by and i barely know what i have done with the 10 months that have passed!
I only have 2 more courses left this semester, and my current course is “coaching” which i have mixed feelings about. I think it will be a very beneficial and inspiring course with alot of useful information. Alot of practical work and lectures almost everyday as well as alot of litterature reading. But it is not as intense as my previous course where i spent almost full days in school doing group work or at home writing on my own reports and essays and assignments due. So now hopefully it will be more freetime, my work will also include coaching others as well as reflecting over alot of things which will be beneficial for my future career – to coach others. How to inspire and motivate!
This month my goals are just to try to stay active, energetic and happy. Almost everyday autumn/winter the past 4 years i have fallen into a type of winter depression and this year i want to try my best to not let that happen… of course it is easier said than done. But i want to try to get out and go for a walk most days – even if i won’t do it everyday because of time/energy/motivation.
Try to have a regular sleep schedule and not stay up too late, and try to get up at the same time even the days i am free. Usually in winter when it is dark outside my sleep routine goes out the window and i fall asleep way to late and wake up very late. Infact last December i missed almost all my 8am lectures because i would wake up at 9 or 10am and then head into school for my afternoon lectures hahaha.
Do things that make me happy and smile everyday. Take time for myself to listen to podcasts, listen to good music, bake and cook as all of those things i love and make me happy!
Less time on social media and more time living and experiencing life. Of course, when you are trying to build something from social media it means that you need to spend alot of time on social media but my goal is to be more effective on social media and use it wisely and not just as a time waster. Be more aware and present – which i am alot better at and being more effective when i use social media. I.e dedicating certain hours of the day to reply to comments and write posts and not just use social media all the time but never really get anything done!
Work towards my goals and dreams even if its just a small step somedays. Each day i can do something and those small steps count as well!
For now, that is all the goals i can think about….. pretty much the same goals i have each month hahaha. But these dark and cold winter months it is extra important for me to do things i love and make me happy and to stay as positive as i can as well as getting out into nature!!
Do you have any goals for this month/rest of the year? 🙂
