April Goals!

I really need to come up with a more original way of introducing these posts than moaning on about how fast time is going. Honestly though, how fast is this year going now that January's a distant memory? The last few months have just whizzed by, and I can't believe we're into April already. I know that Easter is behind us now, but I couldn't resist using this adorable chick photo for today's blog post (photo from Pexels). Today I'm going to be recapping on last month's goals, and letting you know how I got on with them, and setting out my new goals for April. Let's get started, shall we? 

1. Soak in the tub, at least, once a week. Easy. I've been having so many baths recently that my Lush stash is looking quite depleted! That's okay though, as I never many baths during the warmer months (I prefer a quick, cool shower when it's hot!)

2. Read, at least, a chapter a day. Why was this so hard? Some days I read a lot more than one chapter, other days none.

3. Buy no more than four books in March. Hahaha. Everyone called it when they said I'd fail on this goal. And I did. I don't know exactly how many books I bought in March, but it was a lot more than four.

4. Put £1 in my savings every week. This should have been an easy goal to achieve, but I just totally forgot about it.

5. Spend less money on takeaways. We definitely didn't spend less money on takeaways. If anything, we spent more. Oops?

What happened to my motivation in March? My get up and go got up and went, as my mother would say. I'm determined to make April a better month, and to achieve all of my goals though. Wish me luck! 

1. Eat three meals a day. This might seem like something of an odd goal to make, but as part of my new diet, I want to stick to the new calories guidelines. 400-600-600. A small breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a handful of healthy snacks if needed. 

2. Watch a new series on Netflix. My Netflix watch list is out of control. So I want to make a dent in it by watching, at least, one new series on Netflix.

3. Practice mindfulness three times a day. As part of my Emotional Resilience Course, I've learnt a variety of coping skills to help me manage my anxiety and depression. I want to implement these in April, starting with practising mindfulness at least three times a day.

4. Buy myself flowers once a week. A self-care goal; flowers always brighten my mood. So having a vase or two dotted around the house is always a good idea.

5. Buy a new plant. I've reached peak adulthood, guys. I can finally keep plants alive. So this month I want to treat myself to a new plant, or succulent. 

What are your goals for April?

  1. I love your flower goal as part of a self care routine. I'm trying to also fit self care into each day. Even if it means just taking 5 minutes to myself, reading a new magazine, or painting my nails

  2. I like the sound of your new self caring goals - enjoy the flowers! :) Tania Michele xx

  3. Well done on being able to keep plants alive. I'm nearly 35 and I'm still killing every plant that enters my house.
    Great goals this month - hope you achieve all of them!

    1. Haha, it's a fairly recent thing for sure! Thank you x

  4. I killed a plant last month so I'm definitely not with you on that adulting front haha. I'm the same with reading - some days I get through so much and at other times I go a couple of days with nothing

    Steph -

    1. Haha, oh no, you'll get the hang of it!! Same.
