2022 Taught Me:Still Need To Take Better Care Of Myself

We are just days away from 2023 and I’m excited. I am still making a plan with the goals I set for myself and recently created my vision board. I feel like I am ready to take on this new year hoping it comes in and sits down and not be raggedy. We are tired from the past 2 years.

I thought I had 6 lessons I learned this year but realizing I only had 5 lol. I don’t think this last one really ties into the ones….well yes it kinda does lol. I honestly need to take better care of myself physically and mentally. I’m thankful to be seeing another year but I can’t keep going like I am. My biggest thing is being active again. I haven’t consistently worked out in the past 2 years and feel like it is starting to catch up to me. I just want to feel and look good. So I know I’ll have to take it one day at a time and not rush into it.

I also want to start eating a little bit healthier. I’m doing better with having snacks at work and eating earlier. Remember when I first started, I wasn’t eating until like 4pm or not eating lunch at all which was not good. I made it a priority to eat my lunch and before it was dark outside. I also made it a point to have snacks so I have some fuel throughout the day.

I talked a lot about being intentional with my mental health and wanting to go to at least one therapy session and just getting myself together. I didn’t get to therapy yet but I plan on it for the new year and I’ve been pretty good with my mental health. I’ve learned to step away when I needed to and I should of taken more mental health days but proud of myself for leaving the job when things got crazy and felt myself getting super overwhelmed.

I feel like 2023 will be about more self discovery and being more intentional about things. I’m always grateful for the lessons I learn every year. I’m not sure if I’ll be taking a break next week cause I need it lol or will be back but Happy New Year and see you in 2023!
