I’m sure none of you really noticed, but I spent the last week mostly off the grid. By that I mean I was totally on the internet constantly, I just stopped blogging after Monday and didn’t post a video. I’ve been very honest about the fact that I’ve been struggling with my anxiety, and I’ve spent the last two weeks mostly in my room watching Grey’s Anatomy, because I just really needed to.
I’ve written a lot about making goals, and I do so every week, so you can imagine the last two weeks have not been my most successful. I’m tired of it. I’m tired of feeling unsatisfied at the end of the week. I’m tired of feeling mediocre. I’m tired of thinking about what I can and will be, I just want to be it.
Slowing down the last couple of weeks has been great for my mental health, but falling short of my goals has not been good for my progress as a human. So since I’m so tired, I’m not just making goals anymore, I’m making plans. Plans are what you do to put your achieve your goals, to put yourself into action. It’s one thing to say you’re going to write a book, it’s another thing to make yourself write 10,000 words every week. Goals are just dreams until you put a plan of action behind them.
One of my goals I fall short of most often regardless of my mental health is to work out at least three times a week. Three times is not that many, and it could actually be really beneficial to me, because working out helps relieve stress and anxiety, as well as promoting healthier eating, yet working out is usually what I prioritize the least. So this week I am starting a plan: every week for the next 52 weeks I will work out at least three times.
I undoubtedly have no idea what I’m getting myself into. I even plan on moving in the next year at least once, most likely twice, and much further than just inter-city, but I’ll just have to deal with that when I get to it.
I’m also going to keep up with my blog, my videos, my book, and my school work. I’m making plans, because I deserve to be successful.
What plans do you have? Do you work out, eat healthy, take care of yourself? Do you study as much as you mean to? Start making changes and plans because you deserve to. Hard work is only hard because it matters, and once you have it in habit it will be a lot easier. I want to hear what your plans are, so let me know in the comments. And are you seeing any plans through right now? Maybe you’re way ahead of me and you’re on your way. If you’re struggling, it’s okay, you’ll make it. x.
