10 To-Do's for March

Saturday, 27 February 2021

 Happy Saturday, friends!
I hope you are feeling inspired and motivated to do great things this week.

Last month, I was massively inspired by Rebecca's (From Roses) approach to goal-setting in this post. Rebecca basically decided to stop setting herself giant goals that spanned over the entire year, so that she could focus on the smaller (more achievable) things she would like to do on a monthly basis. There is just SO much I love about taking this approach- it completely takes the pressure off. 

While I've already committed myself to 7 long-term goals for 2021 (which I can share in another post if you want...), I still think it's good practice to chunk your goals into smaller pieces to make them more manageable. So, without further ado...


Stay In Community With Others

In Janurary, I wrote a '5 Happy Things' post, in which I mentioned one of my most treasured goals for 2021; staying in community with others. Back in january, I took a couple baby steps to rejoin the communities I had neglected towards the end of 2020- like finally joining the student group my church runs. In March, I want to continue investing in that community, I want to continue investing in my wider church community and my non-christian community... all of whom have become really important to me.

Keep Sunday Free

For the past 3 years, I have strived to keep to one simple rule: always keep Sunday work-free. Burnout can be seriously debilitating- and that's something I know from experience (roughly 3 and a half years ago I overworked myself to the point that I was physically sick for over a week). However, that's really hard to do while you're completing a PGDE course in education like myself, and last year I didn't quite stick to the 'no-work on Sundays' rule. I'm hoping that doesn't happen again, so one of my main goals for March is to make sure I have at least one day off every week. I need it not only for my mental health, but also for my physical and spiritual health.

Wear More Makeup

Now I'm well aware that straight off the bat, this goal might sound a little strange. But if you know anything about me, you'll know just how much of a difference having a full face of makeup can have on my mood. Taking 40 minutes to paint my face in the morning gives me the time I need to practice self-care before I start my day- and it leaves me feeling confident, fresh, and ready. That being said, I've gotten pretty lazy with my makeup... to the point that I got a new Fenty foundation for Christmas that I've literally not even opened yet- and I was SO excited to try it! (I still am). So here we are- my third goal of the month is to wear more makeup

4. Read At Least 1 Book

Another one of my goals for 2021 is to read more books. Last year was the first time in over 5 years that I read an entire book for pleasure, and by the end of the year I had read 6 books... but this year I want to double that, and read a book for each month of the year. I've already read two so far, so my plan is to read 'Love Does' by Bob Goff. I haven't read any of Bob Goff's books, but I have a few friends who are huge fans & advocates of his writing, so I'm sure it'll be a great one to sink my teeth into. 

little resolutions: 

  • Keep a gratitude log every evening

  • Catch up with all the podcast episodes I've missed out on

  • Keep on top of cleaning

  • Continue to read my bible every day

  • Pray or practice mindfulness when I am stressed out

  • Put more of my unworn clothes on Depop

have you got any goals for the month ahead?
