At the beginning of the year, I decided I really wanted to focus on wellness as a whole & have been dedicating 1 post a month to wellness. It has been 5 months, so I thought it might be a good time revisit goals.
When I first started the year, I was just getting back into exercising after being out for a really long time due to injury. I knew I couldn’t do much, so my goal was just to get moving a little again. I’ve slowly but steadily increased what I have been doing, but also been focusing on not overdoing it. I do not want to go backwards.
So at the beginning of the year, I challenged you to set a small wellness goal. Whether you did or not, now is a good time to re-evaluate those goals. You might find that the original goal isn’t what you thought it would be, or it just isn’t going the way you hoped. Or you might have moved past your original goal.
For me, I have moved past my original goal. Originally I just wanted to get moving a little bit again – 2-3 days a week. In April I decided my goal was to exercise more days in the month than I didn’t exercise. And I did it. My goal was the same for May, and I did it again.
Now my goal for June is to increase my cardio (I am still walking, no running yet), do more yoga and add to my weight workout.
So my challenge for you for June is to take a look at your goals and re-evaluate them. What is working for you? What isn’t? If you didn’t set any goals, maybe set one or two. I still say keep them really attainable so that you succeed!

Last month, I wrote about my new love for Headspace meditation app, and I challenged you to give meditation a try, whether you use the app or not. Did you give it a try? I’ve now been meditating for over 75 days, and I am still really liking it. I finished the 30 day pack for anxiety and am now doing the 30 pack for creativity. If you haven’t given Headspace a try, I highly recommend it, especially if you think meditation isn’t for you (like I did). The first 10 days on the app is free so it won’t cost you a thing!
I’d love to hear about some of your wellness goals – are they the same as at the beginning of the year? Have they evolved?
