Well, that’s it folks. We’ve successfully survived the first month of 2017. And, more importantly, we’ve successfully survived the first few weeks of Trump’s Presidency. By which I mean we’ve all sat around and watched him start systematically dismantling democracy and violate human rights.
But I digress. February is here, and I’ve gotta say, I’m excited. February is gonna be a Good Month. Mainly because James and I are going to Berlin on the 13th for a few days. Also cos it’s my birthday that same week. Fun times ahead.
Since y’all loved my January Goals post last month, and since I am apparently obsessed with setting goals for myself, I thought I’d set some February Goals as well. So, without further ado, here are some things I wanna achieve this month.
Get out of the office
I don’t mean for like, hours at a time. Somehow I don’t think my boss would like that. But I really do need to get up from my desk a bit more. When the weather’s nice, I tend to use my lunch hour to go for a walk, but when it’s cold and miserable, I just sit at my desk for literally the whole day. Which isn’t good for anything.
So one of my February goals is to go out for at least half an hour at lunchtime. Even if I just walk into town and back, at least I’ll get moving a bit more. My arse will surely thank me.
Look after my skin
I’m quite lucky in that I’ve always had relatively good skin. I never suffered from acne as a teenager, and my skin is neither excessively oily nor excessively dry. But I’m well aware that if I don’t look after my skin properly, it’ll rebel against me soon.
Although I love the ritual of skincare, I’m sporadic at it best. So this month I want to really commit to looking after my skin. That means washing it properly every morning (not just throwing a few drops of water at it), and properly taking my makeup off at night. No excuses.
Read new blogs
Last month I made it my goal to comment on at least one blog a day, and I freaking loved it. So I wanted to set another blogging goal for this month as well. And that is to read new blogs more often.
I want to make it my mission to find at least one new blogger to follow each week. Currently I have a fair few blogs that I read regularly, but I’d love to find some new bloggers. Particularly bloggers who write about similar topics to me.
That’s it! Those are my three February goals! Let me know in the comments if you have any goals or plans for this month. I’d love to hear what you’ve got planned for Feb!
