2020 Happiness Project

February 2020: Mindfulness and Wellness

My plan for February 2020 was to focus on service and kindness, but I’m changing it up a bit.

My January resolutions were hard to manage, particularly the ones related to food. I constantly find myself slipping back into unhealthy habits – too much caffeine, junk food – when I’m stressed or busy. (OR when I’m just stuck in a bad habit, like stopping to get a snack on the way home from work!)

So I don’t feel fully ready to dive into a topic like service. It makes more sense to me to take my topic for March – Mindfulness, Meditation, and Presence – and blend it together with my health and wellness goals to make a new theme.

Therefore, my theme for February 2020 is going to be Mindfulness + Wellness. Here are the resolutions I’ve come up with so far:

1. Attend 2 AA meetings every week. (Aim for three; don’t allow less than two.)

2. Meditate every morning.

3. Dock my phone AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE – limited screen time.

4. Plan adventures. (More on this soon.)

5. Take baby steps (atomic habits) toward improving my sleep hygiene.

6. Stop worrying about eating healthy and limiting caffeine; I seem to do better in this area when I’m not stressing about it.

May this February be heart-shaped and lovely. Let’s do this.
