April seems to of flown by for me, even given the fact that lockdown is still happening in the UK (and rightly so I think). May looks to be much of the same, so again this months goals are very home based and things I can work on from the safety of my own home.
APRIL GOALS RECAP
Keep positive. I definitely tried to keep positive in April, of course there were lots of down moments and days when I just felt so off, but that’s a given with the state of the world right now. Some days were better than others, but I feel I did my best at this.
Keep creating. I’d say that April was a really creative month for me. I created lots of photos I was really happy with, did lots of painting and embroidery, and felt fufilled creatively. That’s something I’m really happy about.
Be kind to myself. Looking back, I can proudly say I was really kind to myself in April, and I’m so glad. It actually made such a difference to my mood, and productivity levels too. Hopefully this is something I can remember to carry on for the foreseeable until it becomes a habit, instead of something I need to remind myself about.
Push myself out of my creative comfort zone. Carrying on from earlier, now that I feel really happy with my creativity levels right now, I want to push myself further. Paint new things, try to create different images than I’m used to, and maybe even do some embroidery on a t-shirt or two. I can’t wait!
Try a new workout. Even if it’s just trying out a new Youtube video (for some reason I really want to try a Barre exercise) or adding some weights after I’ve finished a run, I think it will be good for myself and my body to change things up a little bit.
Work on mindset and positive habits. This month I want to do more work with affirmations and different meditations. I’m already halfway through a 10 day meditation youtube series, so hopefully I can keep that up for the rest of the month. There are a few other things I’d like to do too, so we’ll see.
What are your goals for May?
