It’s the last day of the year and many of us have this mutual feeling of fear and excitement, relief and suspense, urgency and optimism as well as dread and the realization that it’s not over just because the calendar flips. I told my husband that I wouldn’t be surprised if the center of the Earth overheated at midnight and the whole planet exploded. Nothing is going to surprise me at this point.
At this time of the year I usually look at a recap of all that I’ve accomplished and start to plan out for the coming year. I decided to look at it a little differently this time around.
Habits I Formed in 2020
- Flossing my teeth at night
- Wearing my retainer
- Putting on facial cream morning and night
- Daily yoga (I am currently on day 35, but it’s still going, so it counts)
- Daily run (Still only on day 5, but I am working on it)
- Saving for retirement
Things I quit doing in 2020
- Letting others define me
- Taking chances with my health and safety
- Saying “yes” when I mean “no”
Where My Life is going in 2021
This year I want to focus on the millions of little ideas I have in my head that I want to put into action. Things like continuing to work on “streaking” my fitness. After I can maintain 30 days of running and yoga I want to add in Pilates to the mix daily. These are the basis for the three things I teach the most, so I want to do them daily. I have some ideas for things I’d like to write and what I want to read. I have goals for this blog and my meditation practices. There’s so much more I want to accomplish and I think that my approach right now is one day at a time. If I add just one more day of doing it the way that makes me happy, then that’s one day closer to adding in the next great thing.
What is next for you in 2021?
