Well, here we are. September 1. Time to kick off the Happiness Project. When we last left off, I was telling you about my goals for this adventure. So, it's month one. It's time to focus on Health. First, I chose this focus because I figured I'd need the extra boost to get going. I've never been someone I would call "health conscious." Well, perhaps here and there, but not anything that stuck around for a while. In the past few weeks days hours I've been paying a little more attention, but clearly it isn't enough.
So, it's time for me to get serious. And not just for month 1. I'm not interested in a diet. I want, no I need a lifestyle change. So, here is how I'm going to approach it:
Goal 1: Develop a healthy eating plan and include the family. Track our progress.
Goal 2: Get more rest. In bed by 10 so I can get an actual 7 or 8 hours of sleep and get up early enough to get things done before the family makes.
Goal 3: Exercise (and I'm cringing as I write this) at least three times a week.
Goal 4: Get back to journaling (mental health, you know). Blogging = journaling in my book
Goal 5: Get back into the habit of meditating
Goal 6: Develop a general awareness of my health
Goal 7: Drink at least 64 oz of water every day.
Let the games begin.
