August, where did you go? …. I honestly feel like August didn’t happen it went that quickly.
Every month I try and come up with some goals, this gives me a sense of focus and something to achieve. I’ve been feeling pretty rubbish these last few weeks. After returning from Florida at the end of July it seems like there’s nothing to look forward to and everything has become flat.
I feel totally stuck in a rut … with this in mind I’ve decided my goals for September are going to be about me. Self care, what I need and lifting my mood.
Try and read at least 4 times a week
I love to read, but unless I’m on holiday, I rarely ever pick up a book. Over the last week, I’ve been trying to read each night before I go to bed. This helps me wind down and switch off. I’ve always been one of those people that struggles to fall asleep as I have too much on my mind. I’m hoping that reading most nights will help with my wellbeing and help me get a better nights sleep.
Have a pamper night
I feel completely in need of a pamper night. A facemask, hot bubble bath and nail painting is always my go to. I also like to wash my hair and use my Dove hair oil and also slather moisturiser over myself. There’s nothing better than feeling fresh faced, radiant and relaxed.
Finalise my design ideas for Christmas
I love making various crafty things. This year I have all sorts of ideas of Christmas crafts that I want to make. I really need to get my head around how much time I realistically have and what I want to do in the time I have. I need to mock up ideas of Christmas cards and pick my final designs to bulk make in preparation for the festive season.
Date night with Shaun
Life gets in the way sometimes. We go to work 5 days out of 7, we get tired and when we get home all we want to do is slump around on the sofa and not do a lot else. Myself and Shaun are terrible for this. I want to make a real effort to have date night at least twice during the month of September…. Bowling, dinner out, cinema etc…. just something along these lines. I think it’s so important to have date night every now and then, it gets you away from the regular routine and is also something to look forward to.
As you can see, these goals are very much around my wellbeing and keeping myself happy. But I think sometimes we have to be selfish and think of our own needs. There’s nothing wrong with taking some time every now and then to look after yourself.
What are your goals for September?
