Gentle Goals for January

By Clairejustalittleless
Gentle goals for JanuaryI'm returning to setting monthly goals in 2023. I used to enjoy setting monthly mini goals and then reflecting on my progress towards the end of the month. My aim is to a) make myself more accountable b) build good habits c) try new things. Let's crack on with my short list.
1. To read at least 2 books, one fiction and one non-fiction. I've been in a reading slump of late and I'm not sure why when I love reading and have been given some interesting books recently. What better month than January to enjoy curling up on the sofa with a good book?2. To exercise daily either by walking or training at the gym. I've been going to a gym since April last year and have been enjoying strength training, swimming and the occasional fitness class. My fitness has improved, I feel more confident and my body's more toned. However, I need to walk on my no gym days or at least stay active. 3. Sew. I've got an embroidery kit and a some felt dog patterns both of which are adorable. 4. Have a low buy month. We're currently shopping from our own fridge, freezer and cupboards and only buying food that we need after careful menu planning. Also, I won't be buying anything I don't need such as clothes, magazines, make-up, decorative items, plants or books. Buying from charity shops is also off limits. 5. Make another Youtube video. I made 1 Youtube video last year which I'll link below. I'd be interested to know if this is something you'd like to see more of. 
I'll reflect on theses 5 goals towards the end of the month if not before. I'll hopefully have lots to write about as well as photos relating to each goal. 
The photo is Gwynver beach, just north of Sennen Cove. We stayed at The Hut in Gwynver last year for Tim's 60th birthday. We had fabulous views of the ocean and amazing sunsets.
