I made it to day 30 of my writing and I’m feeling so good about this new habit that I’ve created.
October is my favorite month (and birthday month!) but summer is my favorite season so on those warm and sunny October days I feel my absolute best.
I set a small goal of writing daily in September to try to pull myself back together after a very tough 6 months (more on that in later posts) and the fact that I did it really motivated me to keep it going and add a few more things to my plate for this month.
I love a fresh start via either a new week, month, or year even though we can absolutely start new things any day and any time we choose.
This month I’ve chose two new goals to add to my daily writing.
Number 1 – Check social media 1-2 times per day
I used to do this and you wouldn’t believe the amount of things I accomplished in my days compared to days when I just open social media and scroll randomly. Truly a game changer! I checked in twice today and that felt pretty good. I’m going to keep playing around with it and see what feels best. Not only am I putting a limit on how many times I’m checking in, but I’m also putting a limit on the time that I’ll be spending each time I do start scrolling. I don’t want to spend more than an hour a day on social media and let’s be real, even an hour a day is a ton! But I’m committing to not just scrolling but to actually reading posts and interacting with the people that I follow. It’s called social media for a reason and I feel like we often just consume and lack the social aspect in general. Today I was on Instagram for 1 hour and 7 minutes. Here’s to keeping it under 1 hour from now on!
Number 2 – Yoga 30-60 minutes per day
I truly have only done a handful of yoga classes since June. Who am I?! I know that it’s always a good idea to take a break at anything that you do on occasion, but dang. Yoga has been a part of my life for so long and I am a much better person when it is consistently in my life. I’m aiming for an hour a day but even if I do 30 minutes I’ll be happy with that. After a stressful year (for all of us, let’s be real) this is one thing that I know is a necessity to keep me chill. I’m going to be practicing Strala Yoga on Strala Home for the most part but any yoga practice is a great idea!
Here’s to a new and fresh month. Astrologically this month is pretty intense with a micro full moon today, a super new moon on October 16, and a micro full moon on October 31 (!!!!) that will have us energetically back and fourth all month long. It’s going to be a wild month and now more than ever is such a great time to gather practices that can settle you back into your middle space time and time again. Staying grounded and centered within yourself is more important now than ever.
Let me know what your goals are for this month!
