We’re back to another work week, and like always, I want to start you off with a little inspiration.
Today’s post is going to talk about what I learned during the month of September. We only have a few days left, and then we’ll roll right into October. Crazy, only a few months left of 2020.
Let’s get started.
LET’S GET PHYSICAL: I created a plan for my physical health over the next three months. My A1C and blood pressure were impacted the most during my last visit, so I have 3 months to turn things around for the better. Like I mentioned in my last post, I downloaded the app Fabulous, which is like a habit tracker app. So far, so good, the app is helping with drinking more water and changing my eating habits. I’ll give you all a full update later on this week.
FOCUS ON THE MENTAL: Mentally, I’m doing better than I was Thursday. After the doctor’s visit, my mind went to a different place and I couldn’t focus on anything, I took the rest of that day to reflect and let everything sink in. Then, I used the rest of the day to journal and get out of the rut I created. The next few days were good, I took things easy since it was “That Time.” Then, last night, I spent the evening listening to InTouch and texted a good friend of mine about my day.
CLOSER TO THE FINISH LINE: Classes are going great. I passed my Visual Communications, and starting off strong in my Intercultural Communications class. My peers and instructor continue to inspire me to keep up with blogging, and my teacher really enjoys my writing. Only a few more months left, and I’ll have that degree.
READ MORE BOOKS: I’m still making it a goal to read more books. “Eat. Pray. Love” is still in rotation, and I decided to add another book to read for my personal growth. I bought a finance book to help me learn more about financing and how I can be more disciplined with my spending.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT: Besides reading more books, I’ve created a list of things that I felt can help me with my personal growth. From learning more about productivity to learning more about minimalism so I can reduce stress for my mental health.
Overall, September was a wake-up call. The rest of 2020 is the time for me to put these plans into actions and make things happen. I’m still smiling at my future. It’s looking bright.
Ok, time for me to get back to work. Check in on you all later.
Until next time…
