Yesterday, I started to feel a little separated with everything. I felt that somethings were going really well but other things just weren’t even happening at all and I kinda felt that it was a failure. So I started going through my goals that I’ve set myself to try and realign and it actually blew my mind when I realised how on track I actually am.
One of my goals for this year has been one of my goals for a few years but I’ve never properly delved into it, which given its importance is just crazy. But my health & wellness it a priority for me this year. Given the fact that I’ve only been to the gym once this and it’s the 26th January, I felt like a completely failure already. That was until I read through my goals again and realigned.
Although I haven’t been actively working out, I’ve been learning more about the body and about feeding my body right. I mean, let be honest, I don’t know anything about nutrition and I definitely don’t know anything about what kind of workouts I should be doing. So when I have been going to the gym and doing a workout, although I’ve felt more energised afterwards, my body hasn’t been getting what it needs. I’ve been eating rubbish and doing exercises based on what I’ve seen some people do.which is why I set myself the goals of actually learning about health and wellness. Learning what I should be feeding my body and how I should be moving it. And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing this year, I’ve just felt like I wasn’t doing a thing, but I have.
That’s where these “goals” get us down sometimes in life. They’re great to set and to have tasks you can tick off, but even when you’re actively doing something towards it, it doesn’t always seem that way. It sometimes seems as if you’re not doing anything at all when you clearly are when you stop and review and get clarity. This is why it’s so important to review your goals to get realigned with them and figure out what you are doing and also where you can improve.
So from now on, I’m going to be reviewing my goals more frequently, to help myself from getting in to a downward spiral and ending the pity party before it even begins!
