For August my goal was to waste less time on my smartphone.
I achieved this, though probably to be honest I've slipped back a little in the last week (then again, it is September now, so I'm in the clear...)
I did indeed sort out my linen cupboard, which took a good two hours plus. There's time right there not spent on 9Gag, Twitter or Slate. I cleaned out the kitchen, and sorted and put away the sundry clothes sitting in piles next to my bed.
I also got a bit more sleep each night, and consequently found it a little easier to wake up.
And now that I'm taking the train more than I am driving to work, I get to play/read on my phone during the daily commute, so I didn't even miss much phone time.
And now here we are almost halfway into September and I'm only now setting this month's goal. However, like most of these resolutions, this one aims to be ongoing, so it doesn't really matter how late I've started.
This month I resolve to do floor exercises for 15 minutes a day.
Floor exercises are fantastic for increasing flexibility and tone, and they can easily be done at home, for free! When I was in my late teens I lost quite a bit of weight and toned right up using floor exercises.
Since I broke my arm two years ago and then sprained my ankle last year, I spent a lot of the last 2 years less mobile than I used to be, and consequently I've stiffened up a lot. Part of it is age I suppose, but I'm not that old either! Time for action.
I really wish I had this book:
What's on your to-do list this month?
