I won’t lie – I’m excited to put this past month behind me. February was crazy, cold, exhausting, and emotional. I already like March better. But before we move forward, let’s see how I did on my February Intentions.
Remove the phrase “I CAN’T” from my vocabulary.
I learned this month that complaining and saying “I can’t” is like riding a stationary bike: it uses up a lot of energy but doesn’t get you anywhere. Rather than really removing the phrase from my vocabulary this month, I was just hyper aware of when I said it. For example, “I can’t write my yoga paper.” or “I can’t make it through today.” Dramatic much? haha Did I finish my yoga paper? Yes. Did I make it through that day? Yes. Another one: “I can’t be a photographer. Who am I kidding?” It’s time to get some positive thinking and confidence up in here! Maybe this will turn into a separate post in the future.
Spend at least ten minutes doing something for myself each day.
I think this happened most days. I watched a lot of tv this month, which is unlike me (I am the girl who canceled her cable after all), but for some reason found it a really good escape.
Make getting at least eight hours of sleep a night my number one priority.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
Meditate for at least ten minutes every morning when I first wake up.
I’d really love to make this a habit. I’ve enjoyed meditating in teacher training and I’m interested to see what it would be like to do consistently on my own. I’ve tried it a few times and I’ve had trouble sticking with it for ten minutes without realizing I had something else to do. Pretty sure that’s not what’s supposed to happen…
Clean up my room for five minutes before I go to sleep.
A clean space makes me feel lighter but it’s so hard when you let it all pile up.
Read two books.
I’d like to get back into reading before bed and ditch the tv this month. This will probably help with:
Get eight hours of sleep a night.
Trying this one again ; )
What are your March goals or intentions? How did you do in February?
