Make March Your Month: Post 1

For the month of March, I am going to write a four-post series titled, “Make March Your Month.” These posts will give insight on how to achieve your goals, and life a happy, healthy month overall (hence the title).

This first post of my series is about how to decide what goals you want to achieve. We all have different goals we want in our lives, and we all want to become the best version of ourselves. The question is, how do we do that without losing track of everyday responsibilities like work, school, relationships and other commitments?

One of the best ways to decide what goals you’re looking to achieve is by taking time to reflect on what is most important to you right now. For the month of March, what main goal are you hoping to accomplish? Whether you’re looking to go to the gym more often or be more organized with work or school, it must be something that is important for you.

One of my favorite quotes is, “If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way. If it’s not important to you, you’ll find an excuse.” Create a goal that you know you won’t make any excuses for March, and you’ll be one step closer to achieving them.

The next step is to create a plan that won’t affect your life negatively. For example, if you’re looking to begin a new hobby, don’t let the hobby affect your work life or relationships. One of the most important aspects of achieving your goals is to allow your plan to work with your current schedule. Don’t create unnecessary stress. The point is to create bliss in your life for the entire month, so pick a goal that you want to achieve, and create a plan that will help you accomplish your goal (but won’t negatively affect you).

Another tip is to find a system of tracking your progress. Prep healthy meals for the week on Sunday, plan your workout schedule, find time to organize different areas of your home. Whatever your goal entails, find a method that will allow you to plan ahead and reflect on your progress on a daily or weekly basis. You’ll find your goal more achievable if you break down the month on a weekly basis. Then, reflect on how you’re doing regularly to see what you accomplished during the week and what you need to improve on for next week.

Finally, find a support system. Tell your close friends and family that you have a goal for this month and you want support along the way. It’s nice to have positive reinforcement from loved ones. You don’t have to accomplish your goals alone.
