Health // New Year’s Resolutions Update

Happy April everyone!

Today, we’re officially three months in to 2014, and so I thought that it would be a perfect time to do a brief check-in on my New Year’s resolutions for the year. My overall goal for this year was (and still is) to focus on my health and work on taking better care of myself. Since January, it seems like life has been really busy. It’s easy to focus on the day to day and lose sight of what you’re trying to work on. You can read the original post here, but here’s my list to give you an idea:

Physical Health
Get back to eating (mostly) Paleo.
Eat lunch and drink more water during the day, EVERY DAY.
Get into an exercise routine again.
Don’t neglect appointments.
Take better care of my skin.
Get more sleep.
Mental Health
Make a concerted effort to stop procrastinating.
Create better work/life/blog balance.
Get off the computer and get outside EVERY DAY.
Read more. 
Stop trying to turn everything into a blog post/Instagram photo.
Spiritual Health
Find a church here in Portland.
Join a small group or Bible study.
Be intentional with actually taking quiet time each day to read the Bible/do a devotion everyday.
Ask God how can I use my time and talents to help others here in my community.
Pray more, worry less. 
I’m not going to go into detail on how I’m doing with each resolution, but let’s just say it’s a work in progress. However, even just publicly re-posting this list is a really great personal reminder that I need to be better at holding myself accountable to do the things that I know are important for my physical, mental, and spiritual health. This new month has me feeling extra motivated to be more disciplined about focusing on my goals, so yay for spring!!

What about you? I’d love to hear about if you’re still holding strong on your resolutions from January…or maybe setting some new goals for the spring/summer months!
