It's time to begin 2023! January has started, so I suppose I am a little late. This is typical for me; maybe that is something I should add to this plan—a month of being on time for things. My goal for 2023 will be to have one entire month of something I am uncomfortable with or don't take the time to do in general. If you'd like to join me, please do! Below is my outline for the rest of 2023 and a few rules I have given myself for each month.
I have also decided to have one full-year goal if you will. That is to move my body for 20 minutes per day. I will not restrict the movement to anything specific; it could be dancing, walking, or working out - you get the idea.
Each month will have a blog post, so I can share how it went and any realizations I have had.
January: Stay Sober
This one speaks for itself, but my rule is no substances. This, for me, is alcohol.
February: Nightly Routine
I will go to bed each night at 9:30, wash my face, and meditate or read.
March: No Meat
I think this one is pretty clear, too. Mainly, I am going to learn to cook without meat exclusively.
April: Practice Yoga
Try a new yoga routine daily.
May: No Makeup
This month is about focusing on my skincare and relying less on makeup to feel beautiful.
June: New Class
I plan to take one new class per week in June. This could be an in-person class or an online class.
July: No Dairy
Absolutely, NO dairy. Including cooking at home and eating out of the house.
August: Ted Talk
I will listen to a 20 - 30 minute Ted Talk on a new topic daily.
September: New Dinner
This month I will try or cook something I have never had before.
October: Grocery Shopping
The grocery store and I will become acquainted on an in-person basis.
November: New Outfits
No, I am not buying a new outfit for each day. However, I must put together outfits that I usually wouldn't think to wear. Pinterest will be leading this effort to help with ideas.
Clean out one room per week this month. Donate everything that we no longer want.
