After reading Taisie‘s post on her goals for this and last month, I got really inspired to set some for my own.
Monthly goals are really motivating and honestly they do actually make me get a ton of work done that I didn’t finish yet or didn’t get to at all.
Keeping this blog up and running
Obviously, this is the most obvious goal. Last month I slipped quite a lot, leaving three or four days in between my posts while I usually post every other day. Life does get busy and of course I have real life things to attend to as well, but I’d love to stay on my schedule from now on.
Complete Erin’s Guide To Better Beauty Blogging
I recommend this to everyone, any day. There are so many articles to learn from, so much to do and even for advanced beauty bloggers I think this is a really good read. This has really inspired me to update my blog and organize everything, which of course I am still working on. Since it is a month challenge, I figured I should really add it to this month’s goals.
Write one to a few posts a day
This is really needed to keep me on a working schedule. Having some of my posts prepared really does help in my productivity. Last month I did have a lot of days where I had to quickly whip up a post and trust me, it isn’t fun. Erin gave the advice to just turn off the Wi-Fi, open up Word and just start writing for some time. I think this is a really good idea as you won’t get distracted by social media.
Drinking more water
This one is so important. Last week I had severe dehydration, which has happened before and I got really sick and dehydrated. It’s a terrible feeling which I don’t ever want to expirience again. I guess I should try drinking the recommended eight glasses of water and stick to it this time.
Reading a book
I haven’t read a good book in a while so I probably should start again. I did recently start a book for school – The Stalker – which is pretty interesting so I will probably get back into that.
Spend more time studying
I did let my studies slip a bit this month. I didn’t get the best grades so I think it’s time to step my school game up and start studying a bit more.
Exercising is so important and so healthy. Back in December last year up to this summer I kept myself to a strict exercise routine. I reintroduced this just a few days ago and I’m loving the sore feeling I get already!
Participate in monthly / weekly challenges
I have been looking into this for a few months now actually, but never really got to do it honestly. I think I might start one for December actually, or a small one this month.
I hope I will actually accomplish them! I’m super excited for it. Please do share your goals for this month with me in the comments below!
