As I continue to work on myself I realize that I spend so much time thinking, wondering, coming up with ideas, face booking, instagramming; but, I don’t spend much time on me. I don’t do self-care as much as I would like so I have decided to try to do more self- care which includes journaling. I never liked to journal because I have so many racing thoughts and I struggle with perfectionism so I would want my writing to sound good and be proper; however, I have been working on that and so I will let my words flow and not ruminate about whether or not I am writing with appropriate grammar and punctuation. This is a journal for me to express myself, my thoughts and my ideas.
My weekly goals are to:
Write 4x a week in my journal
Work out 3-4x a week
Stretch when I work out and if possible other days as well
Work on my distorted thoughts 2-3x a week by utilizing thought records
Get up earlier and have time for me
Wash my face every night
Cook my food more frequently
Learn a new recipe once a month
Read for 30 minutes 2x a week
Learn a new spanish word or sentence once a week to start.
As I sit here and write I feel motivated. I don’t want my life or my days to pass by me. I want to experience my life fully and live up to my potential. I’ve become comfortable with being unproductive and my depression has made it a lot easier to be unproductive. However, I am going to try my hardest to begin starting new behaviors and patterns. I want to grow, I want to learn, I want to be healthy and happy.
