self care goals

a different twist on my goals for today, instead of a list of my daily goals i want to achieve, i’m going to do a self care list of self care goals i want to achieve instead.

take a long hot shower
meditate for 10 to 15 minutes
exercise for 15 to 20 minutes
eat nutritious meals
read for an hour
write a list of positive things about myself
name 3 things I am proud of at the end of my day
get good rest

No goals

so I realise I’ve been slacking and not doing any posts where I list my daily goals lately.
I’ll get back to that tomorrow I promise.
To be honest I havent been setting goals for the past couple of days, and I noticed a huge difference in myself. I noticed I wasnt focused. I know I need to do it to stay on track and on target.
So look out for a goals post tomorrow.

Eased into monday

i’m starting to love monday. i get eased into class. after a hard therapy session most mondays thats awesome.
this afternoon we watched this documentary about your data and who has rights to your data when you post stuff online. it was fascinating. very very interesting. i never had really thought much about it until this afternoon. in the documenary this girl hired a security analyst to see what he could find out about her from things she’d posted online to her social media. he was able to find out lots of stuff, like, where she lived, where she worked, went to college, how much she payed for her house, etc. it was quite scary.
class ended at 3 and then i just chilled out for the rest of the afternoon.
tomorrow we are going to visit a call centre. it should be an interesting visit to see how a call centre operates as I’ve never been in one.
we arent cooking tomorrow. but on friday we are making spaghetti bolones and i am making apple crumble again because i want to practice it.
on thursday we are having a coffee morning for past pupils of the ILS course. we have those once a month. there is also an awards ceremony for some of the people on the course, as they are graduating it will be finishing up in 3 weeks time.
i still have to complete my work experience diary for last week. its one of only two things left on my goals list to achieve today. the other is reading, and I will do that in bed tonight.
