May was a really fun but really busy month. It was a total whirlwind and honestly it left me feeling like I need to spend some time refocusing and regrouping. I love any excuse for a fresh start so I’m really looking forward to a new month. Here are some of my mental health goals for the month.
Themes for June
Get Shit Done
I am always working on my website and the blog. Honestly, it’s embarrassing how much time I spend on it but even though I spend a lot of time on it I’m still not getting the projects done that I want. This month I want to be super sharply mega focused on a few priority projects. Having ideas is great but my mission is to share my own mental health experiences and struggles to help other people and having several notebooks full of ideas and nothing to actually share on my blog is helping exactly no one.
I have several drafts of ebooks, workbooks and courses laying around on my laptop waiting for me to get to them. I’m ready to knock some of these out and get them out into the world. Ideas are pretty worthless if you aren’t going to execute them. That’s one of the main lessons I’ve learned from my blog so far is that I need to spend less time researching and being indecisive and more time creating, executing and producing content. I still struggle with fear and insecurity but I’ve been working really hard to just focus on execution and tune the doubt out. All of the fear I had before I started the blog is still there I just choose to ignore it and create content anyways.
If you follow me on SnapChat you know I’m desperately trying to get back on my fitness game. I’m so out of shape from months of not working out that any little bit of jogging leaves me out of breath. I’m freaking determined though. I want to find a gym I like this month and bite the bullet and join. I love the gym but I always feel like I should run outside instead and save the money. Now that I’m in the worst shape of my life I’ve decided I really need to prioritize my fitness and pay for a gym membership. I’m excited to start taking Zumba and Pilates classes again.
I do all of my gratitude practices at home and exactly zero while I’m at work. This has resulted in (surprise) me really starting to hate work. I want to incorporate more gratitude practice throughout the day and not just in the morning and before I go to bed. I’m going to try and make a list on my phone every day of things I’m thankful for and jot down ideas on it while I’m at work. I also want to try and get off autopilot while I’m going through my day to day tasks and be aware of how much great people/opportunities/stuff is all around me.
I’d love to hear what your goals are for the month!
