Where did March go? Cannot believe we are four months into 2016 already.

There are so many things I can think of that I would like to accomplish this month. Unfortunately, I cannot to do them all. I prioritized and organized my goals for April, and here are five things I hope to achieve.

1. A THOROUGH SPRING CLEAN

This time last year I was 7 months pregnant and in no condition to do a proper spring clean.

I want to get to all those hard-to-reach places, all the windows. Each and every room in the house will be cleaned from the top down. Rugs will be shampooed, and I will dust, dust dust!

2. MAKE A DECISION ON MY RETURN TO WORK FROM MATERNITY LEAVE

Figure out what will work best for my darling son, the hubby and myself.

Can’t say more at the moment.

 

3. MY FIRST MUD BATH

Everyone deserves to be pampered once in a while. I am planning a spa day to get a mud bath.

Yes – An hour submerging my body in warm dirt and water. Mud baths can help ease aches and muscle pains whilst having a soothing effect on the skin.

 

4. CHANGE MY LOOK

Need to do something different, daring, very UNLIKE me. Shorten my hair, change the cut? Not quite sure yet – but it will be different and I will have the pictures to prove it.

 

5. MEET NEW PEOPLE

It has been a while since I let myself be open enough to meet people and allow them into my life.

Starting my journey of self-development has opened my mind up to what I want and don’t want in life, relationships and friendships. What I will and will accept. As my self- esteem grows (slowly but gradually) I am willing to let people back into my life.

Now these to you may not sound like big accomplishments, or amazing things to look forward to, but this is where I am in life. Right now this is what I need to do for me.

April will be a month of change and motivation. Not only positive thoughts, but positive feelings and actions.

What great things did you accomplish in March? What are your goals for April?

    1. Hi, I live in Vienna and you can do a mud bath at the spa. It helps relax the body and can help with pain.

    1. Hi Miza, thank you for your positive feedback. I love monthly goals even though I do not always achieve them all. Heading over to your site now to take a look ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This seems like a realistic AND uplifting list. Although with such a young one in your arms there are times that brushing your teeth might not feel realistic. I’m excited to see the new look and be one of the new people that you “meet”.

    Posted on April 9, 2016 at 00:47
    1. Yes Anna! You are definitely one of them. Also, I am sure about the new look, I keep going back and forth on it and just cannot decide. At the end of the day, if it looks like crap, I will write a post about my “new-look epic fail” ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. So I’ve never thought about having a mud bath until I read your post! I’m going to ask the hubs if he wants to try it also. He’s always been my guinea pig. Besides we are a team right !?! LOL

    Posted on April 8, 2016 at 20:15
    1. LOOOOL, that is a great idea Nayrha! Let me know if you try it out.

      Posted on April 9, 2016 at 21:16

  9. Hi Sheri,
    The year is going fast. Are we having that much fun?
    My biggest goal for this month (since I reach the big 40 ) is to drift away from stress.
    That is my biggest Goal!!

    Posted on April 4, 2016 at 21:45
    1. Hi Maria – You can drift away from stress if your practice doing so on a daily basis, I find that different methods work for different people. Either way you look at it, de-stressing is a good thing ๐Ÿ™‚ Congratulations on your 40th (almost) birthday. Make it a great one!

  10. My husband literally just asked me today what I can use that can help me relax & I’ve never had a mud bath! What sort of work will you be going back to after maternity leave?

    This month I plan to ACTUALLY eat better (said as I sit at my desk eating chocolate wafers) and start running again. I went for my first run since having my now 1 year old over the weekend and didn’t realize how much I missed it, just not enough to run when it’s colder than 45 degrees outside ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also going to get a crown on my root canal and finally see the doctor about my wrist/thumb (I’m thinking it’s either arthritis or carpel tunnel syndrome) which I’ve been putting off by telling myself it was all in my head. Turns out, it’s not! haha

    Posted on April 4, 2016 at 19:37
    1. 45 degrees….quick calculation tells me that’s about 7 degrees centigrade? Yup, still pretty cold. It was 22 degrees ( 72 Fahrenheit) in Vienna yesterday! Warm and sunny. I have a friend who runs a lot, and she had to stop for 3 months and she said she didn’t realise how much she missed it and her body needed it. It is a way for her to release stress, is that the same for you? I work as the assistant to the Director of the company I work for so it would be back to organizing, planning, appointments, travel – all things my little one has helped make me an expert in ๐Ÿ™‚
      A root canal……not fun but necessary sometimes. I hope all goes well with your wrist and thumb Kristyn. At times, you just have to give in and go to the doctor. I left healthy eating off my list as the chocolate and sweets just won’t allow it. Try the mud bath if you can and let me know what you think! xoxo S.

  11. As I am a singer, lyricist and singing teacher by profession, I’m planning on launching my own website centred around online singing lessons, how to write your own lyrics and general writing to promote my own work. What do people think of this idea please?

    Posted on April 4, 2016 at 14:44
  12. Nice post with lots of lovely food for thought! Some of the things i would like to accomplish this month are: 1) Lose 2.5 kg’s. 2) Re-inspire my daily meditation. 3) Cultivate a new friendship with someone i have recently met. 4) Exercise for 40 minutes a day. 5) Go for a lymph drainage massage.

  13. I never thought about having a mud bath before, I think I’ll have to look around for a place in CT.

    Posted on April 4, 2016 at 11:06
    1. If you try it – please let me know how it goes. I will update all my goals at the end of the month ๐Ÿ™‚
