New Month, New Goals | April 2020

I was in two minds about whether to post about my goals this month, but I decided that even when we can’t go out, we can still work on our to-do lists. There’s so much to achieve, even when we’re stuck in the house, and it’s always nice to spread some positivity out there.

Did I manage to achieve anything in March?!

Out of my 5 goals for March, I managed to achieve a grand total of half a point. I think we can all agree that March was a bit of a write-off, can’t we? It started off well but then it went very steadily downhill…

Here are the goals that I set for March just as a little recap:

  • Go to the beach – Nope
  • Grow my Etsy shop – Getting there. I’ll give myself half a point for this!
  • Take Cupar to see some baby animals – Unfortunately no
  • Do some knitting – No
  • Try yoga – No, but I really should have done!

Obviously, going to the beach and going to see baby animals are a big no-no at the moment, so I don’t blame myself for not achieving them, but I could have tried harder with the others. We are now into a new month though, so I can dust myself off and try again 🙂

As the printer I use is at my parent’s house, I couldn’t print out a planner to use for this month, but for those of you that do have a printer, you can find my monthly planner on Etsy here

So, let’s get started with some brand new shiny April goals:

All of my goals for this month are obviously going to be centred around being at home because there’s nowhere else to be, but that doesn’t make them any less important.

  • Start a yoga routine – I think this one is really going to help with the anxiety and general uneasiness about everything at the moment for me
  • Write a short story – I wrote my first short story in December (read it here), and I really want to try writing another one. As above, I think it will be a nice distraction
  • Clear out the kitchen cupboards – We seem to have accumulated so much stuff in our kitchen, and most of it we don’t even use, so it’ll be nice to have a proper clearout
  • Start a podcast – I’ve wanted to do this for absolutely ages, but I’ve never had the guts to do it. I think it’d be really fun, and it’d be a nice way to get some blog posts out there for people that don’t necessarily have the time to sit down and read too often
  • Exercise – It will come as no surprise that I’m not getting as much exercise as I used to! I need to get some sort of plan together for how we can all get our exercise every day, especially Cupar.

As I said before, there’s no reason why being at home means that we have to put our goals on hold. With the power of technology and the whole world at our fingertips, there’s still so much we can do.

  1. March was such a weird month. My goals for April is almost the same as in March: Read, do daily exercises, lose some weight, and write my blogposts among others.

    I hope April become awesome for you ❤️

    1. Ah, thank you 😊

      One of mine that I forgot to add is to write my blog posts too. Blogging makes me happy 😊

  2. I think we can safely let you off for not completing all your goals for March… it was hardly a normal month! I wrote up all my April goals because I figured being stuck at home is actually a really good opportunity to get some of those goals done! I can wholeheartedly agree that Yoga with help with your anxiety. If you need any Yoga advice, you know where I am! Xxx

    1. Thanks Jenny 😊 I haven’t really done it before, so I’ll give it a go and see how I get on. And you’re right, being stuck at home is a great opportunity to get started on some goals. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can achieve!

  3. March was crazy but don’t let not accomplishing those goals get you down! Your April goals look incredible and I wish you the best on accomplishing them! Can’t wait to see your May 2020 post to find out! 🙂
